The Coordinated Admission’s Program (CAP) makes it possible for some freshman students who have applied to UT Austin to begin their studies at UT Brownsville. After completing their freshman year, such students transfer to UT Austin to complete their undergraduate studies. It is critical that CAP students meet with an academic advisor with questions regarding academic programs and coursework that should be taken while in CAP.
