SOPHOMORES - If you complete Austin Community College (ACC) Admissions requirements, you may take courses during the summer before your junior year. You are not limited to what we offer on the Lockhart High School campus. Passing the Reading and Writing portions of your ACC entrance test (the TSI test) will meet the prerequisite requirements for dual credit courses. Currently, you can take ACC courses tuition free on campus as a Dual Credit student. The classes currently offered during the school day are listed for the junior and senior school years. ACC does limit the total number of tuition-free courses to 12 courses per student. Learn more at: www.austincc.edu/dual
Subject: The University of Texas at Austin Automatic Admission Policy
Senate Bill 175, passed by the 81st Texas Legislature, allows The University of Texas at Austin to limit automatic admission to 75 percent of the university’s enrollment capacity designated for first-time resident undergraduate students.
The University has determined that it will automatically admit all eligible summer/fall 2020 and spring 2021 freshman applicants who rank within the top 6% of their high school graduating classes, with remaining spaces to be filled through holistic review.
If you have questions regarding this policy, please contact Rachelle Hernandez, Senior Vice Provost for Enrollment Management at The University of Texas at Austin at
