Special Programs - Coordinated Admissions Program (CAP)

The Coordinated Admissions Program (CAP) was developed by The University of Texas System to expand the admission options available to students interested in enrolling at The University of Texas at Austin, the System's flagship university.

In general the Coordinated Admissions Program (CAP) makes it possible for some freshman applicants to UT Austin to begin their studies at another UT System university. After successfully completing the CAP requirements during their freshman year, these students may transfer to UT Austin to complete their undergraduate studies.

Basic Facts about CAP:

  • A student cannot apply to CAP. The only way to participate is to apply for freshman admission to UT Austin for the fall semester.
  • CAP is offered to Texas residents only.
  • Students who successfully complete the CAP requirements are able to transfer to UT Austin without having to apply for transfer admission.
  • Seven UT System universities currently accept CAP students.
  • The participating UT System universities set their own admission standards, which means that some CAP students may not be offered admission to all participating universities.
  • The courses that students take during their CAP year are from approved course lists that include only courses that will transfer to UT Austin.
  • CAP students transferring to UT Austin are not guaranteed admission to all undergraduate majors.
