Top 6% Needed for 2020-21 Automatic Admission

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing with an important update for your juniors (high school graduating class of 2020).

Each fall The University of Texas at Austin announces the rank that current high school juniors in Texas will need to be eligible for automatic admission when they apply during the next application cycle. UT’s President Gregory L. Fenves recently announced that Texas students will be eligible for automatic admission if they are in the top 6% of their graduating classes when they apply to summer/fall 2020 and spring 2021. This is the same rank required for automatic admission for fall 2019 and spring 2020. This information has already been sent to the Education Service Centers.

Thank you again for all you do to help students. Please let me know if we can be of any assistance or if you have any questions.

Miguel V. Wasielewski, Ph.D.
Executive Director of Admissions
