In the College of Natural Sciences, only one transcript-recognized minor or transcript-recognized certificate may be declared per major. A student who wishes to pursue more than one transcript-recognized minor or transcript-recognized certificate per major must consult with his or her academic adviser to get permission from the College.
Students admitted to transcript-recognized certificate and transcript-recognized minor programs must contact their academic advisers to have approved programs added to their degree audit profiles. This allows progress toward the programs to be tracked and ensures that certificates and minors are added to official transcripts upon graduation, if all requirements are met. The transcript-recognized undergraduate academic minor must be completed in conjunction with an undergraduate degree at The University of Texas at Austin.
Undergraduate certificate programs encourage students to explore academic areas that support and extend their degree plans. The following certificates require at least 18 semester hours of coursework, some of which may also be used to fulfill degree requirements. Undergraduates who complete the certificate requirements in conjunction with their degree requirements or within one year after earning the degree will receive a certificate and recognition on their University transcript.
A maximum of nine hours in the certificate program may be taken after completion of the undergraduate degree. At least half of the required coursework in the certificate program must be completed in residence at the University. The certificate in Applied Statistical Modeling equips undergraduate students with the tools necessary to understand how to apply statistics to their primary field of study. This certificate program is designed to complement diverse degree programs and to appeal to students across the University in engineering, science, economics, mathematics, and many other disciplines.
Certificate students will complete one course in the mathematical foundations of statistics, a two-course sequence in applied statistics, and nine additional hours in statistics, machine learning, econometrics, and other relevant courses from the approved list below.
Admission to the certificate is by application only. Students may download an application from the Department of Statistics and Data Sciences webpage.
The certificate consists of 18 hours. Students must receive a grade of at least C in each course applied toward the certificate and have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3. Courses that appear in multiple approved course lists may be beastmetals belt squat to satisfy only one requirement. Students must contact the Department of Statistics and Data Sciences to apply for the certificate in the semester in which they are completing the requirements and graduating.
The Elements of Computing Program, administered by the Department of Computer Science, is designed to support computational work in disciplines other than computer science and to provide students with skills in the use of computer applications. Any non-computer science major may take any elements of computing course for which he or she meets the prerequisite.
No application process is required. The Evidence and Inquiry Certificate, pursued by students in the Polymathic Scholars Program and open by application to others, allows students to design an area of study shaped by questions that require evidence and methodologies outside their major. Students work with faculty to identify interests, map them onto academic disciplines at the University, and determine questions related to those interests that might be answerable by research that combines expertise from at least two disciplines.
Students describe their area of study, identify primary questions, name two University of Texas at Austin faculty members with research experience relevant to their field, and justify the courses they would take in a written proposal that must be reviewed by three members of the program's faculty steering committee. Students complete an original research thesis in their final year. Those who plan to pursue the certificate must apply no later than the end of their third long semester.
The certificate program requires 22 semester hours of coursework, including at least 11 hours completed in residence.He'll answer any question, including about his studies abroad or his research at NASA.

A friend told me that students enrolled in BIO C or CH get a certain amount of pages printed for free in certain computer labs. Does anyone know if this is true and if so which labs and how you get the printing for free?
September edited October Post edited by texasgirlut on October Replies to: free printing.UT AUSTIN Virtual Campus Tour!
September There should be a computer lab with free printing in the building of your respective major. You've already paid for it through your tuition. You get free printing in Welch if you're registered in a Chemistry class pages per semester. UZZhan replies 5 threads Junior Member. Even if you have your own printer, sometimes it is convenient to print something out when you are away from your dorm room or apartment. Longhornsg 18 replies 5 threads New Member.

Am I good enough for UT Austin? All Online Classes.Sometimes, it's fun to break the rules. It is always important, however, to know what the rules are and why they are in place. Some majors have specific requirements that you need to be aware of. Here is a comprehensive list of major specific requirements.
If you apply to a college, school, or major that requires prerequisite courses, and you have not completed or demonstrated them in progress, your application will not be considered. You cannot take these courses in a maymester or summer before the semester you want to enroll.
Ensuring you have any required courses completed or in progress is particularly important for business and engineering. Additionally, admissions reviewers want to see that you make A's in these required courses, though A's are not required. All prospective majors in the Cockrell School of Engineering must submit a minimum of four "technical" courses like math, physics, geology, chemistry, etc.
You must take the first semester of calculus and physics:. The Jackson School of Geosciences requires the first semesters of geology, physics, and calculus:. Applicants seeking transfer to Economics in Liberal Arts have requirements similar to business applicants:. While there are no requirements for Natural Sciences eligibility, the university wants to see a strong performance in STEM coursework.
