The School of Undergraduate Studies is home to students who are exploring majors at UT Austin. The advisors and career counselors in the Center for Strategic Advising & Career Counseling are excited to meet you and introduce you to resources that will help you identify majors and careers that align with your goals.
As a new student, you should
Learn about resources and activities for freshmen, students new to The University of Texas at Austin who have not enrolled in another college or university since graduating high school.
Learn about next steps for transfer students, students new to The University of Texas at Austin who have attended another college or university since graduating from high school.
As a UGS student, you have four long semesters before you must declare a major. This rule applies to new freshmen as well as transfer students, although transfer students are encouraged to decide on a major within their first year at UT Austin. If you transferred into UGS from another college or school at the university after your first year, you have two long, full-time semesters in UGS.
