A partnership between ACC and UT Austin Path to Admission through Co-Enrollment (PACE)
What if you could have the best of both worlds?
What if you could attend small classes in a supportive learning environment, yet at the same time gain access to game-changing resources available only at a world-class university whose mission includes both teaching and learning—education and research.
It's possible in a program The University of Texas at Austin and Austin Community College (ACC) offer to select freshman applicants. (You can’t apply to participate; eligible students are offered the opportunity.)
While in the program, Path to Admission through Co-Enrollment (PACE), students take 12 hours at ACC, plus no fewer than three hours per semester at UT Austin, for one year. Longhorns from Day One, students who successfully complete the PACE requirements continue their undergraduate studies at UT Austin without having to apply for admission.
Meanwhile, they also have the potential to save money while enjoying a seamless student experience in which the rigor of coursework remains uncompromised and—most of all—life-changing.
