CAP Curriculum
University of Texas of the Permian Basin – Fall 2012 / Spring 2013

To be eligible for guaranteed fall 2013 enrollment in the UT Austin School of Undergraduate Studies, College of Liberal Arts, or College of Natural Sciences, Coordinated Admission Program students at UT Permian Basin must complete 30 approved semester hours of coursework (including a mathematics course other than College Algebra) with at least a 3.2 grade point average by June 1, 2013.

Approved CAP courses are listed below (with UT Austin transfer credit evaluations). For CAP purposes you can take any listed course, subject to UT Permian Basin's placement, prerequisite, or other requirements. Consult an academic advisor before selecting courses, and review the Recommended Courses following the list.

English Composition
(core 010)

Two courses for any UT Austin degree:

ENGL 1301(= RHE 306)
ENGL 1302(= RHE 309K)

Mathematics
(core 020)

MATH 1324(= M 303D)
MATH 1332(= M 602A)

MATH 2412(= M 405G)
MATH 2413(= M 408K*)
MATH 2414(= M 408L*)
MATH 2415(= M 408M)

* Natural Science majors receive alternative M 408N & 408S credit for Calculus I & II.

While it does not satisfy UT Austin degree requirements, MATH 1314 counts in the required 30 CAP semester hours (but is excluded from the CAP GPA) because it may be prerequisite to other UT Permian Basin math courses. If required, 1314 should be taken in the fall semester or the CAP math requirement may not be completed within the available two-semester timeframe.

Science & Technology, Part 1

Recommended Courses

Major-specific recommendations below differentiate the various Mathematics, Science & Technology, Visual & Performing Arts, Social Science, or Foreign Language requirements in UT Austin degrees.

While it is not a CAP requirement to follow a particular degree plan, you are strongly encouraged to choose courses needed in your planned major field of study. Otherwise, you may delay your degree progress or affect your eligibility to declare a major (especially in Business, Engineering, Geoscience, and Natural Science programs, which require completion of specific courses for admission).

English Composition, Humanities, History, and Government requirements are identical in all UT Austin degrees, and applicable courses can be selected from the list above.

Foreign language proficiency requirements are satisfied by completion of a course sequence in one language through the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th semester.

These recommendations conform to degree requirements in the UT Austin Undergraduate Catalog 2012-2014.
