The Jefferson Junior Fellows Program

To qualify for the program, students must have completed at least one year at UT or another college or university, must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher, and must be enrolled in at least one course that qualifies for the Program in Core Texts and Ideas. A list of these courses may be found under qualifying courses. Preference will be given to students who are on track to graduate with the CTI Certificate.
