A partnership between ACC and UT Austin Path to Admission through Co-Enrollment (PACE)
Path to Admission through Co-Enrollment (PACE) offers selected applicants to The University of Texas at Austin the opportunity to attend small classes in a supportive learning environment while having access to the resources of a world-class university. Students who are enrolled in PACE:
- Take most of their classes at a community college and one course per semester at UT Austin.
- Have two years to complete the core curriculum while earning a minimum grade point average (GPA).
- Transition to full-time UT austin status without having to apply for transfer admission after successfully completing the PACE requirements.
Dedicated advisors at UT Austin and at the community college work to help students successfully select courses that will put them on the path to earning a UT Austin undergraduate degree. PACE students also have access to resources on both campuses and may save thousands of dollars in tuition during the time they’re enrolled in the program.
Students cannot apply to participate in PACE. UT Austin offers participation to selected freshman applicants.
