Get to Know UGS Students

Students in the School of Undergraduate Studies can explore all the university has to offer before declaring a major. By learning about your interests, goals, and academic options first, you’re more likely to select a major you’ll stick with. Eighty-six percent of 2012 graduates who began UT enrolled in UGS graduated with the first major they declared.

Academic advisors and career counselors help students identify majors of interest, navigate internal transfer application processes, and make a plan to graduate in four years.
