What we do

Talented students from across Texas and the world call UT Austin home. Our EMSS mission is to recruit high-caliber undergraduate students that receive a high-level of student support throughout their time at UT – the support they need to succeed and graduate on time. We do this through innovative programs, financial aid and scholarships,  and services and initiatives that provide a world-class educational experience.

From the beautiful new Admissions Welcome Center and the Vo Auditorium to Texas One Stop, and Texas Career Engagement, the goal of EMSS is to provide a comprehensive, holistic student experience from the very beginning of a UT journey to the time our students become Texas Exes. Our units support students along the way, offering guidance on everything from admissions to services related to registration, financial aid, student records, to student support programs and finally post-graduation.

Our office helps ensure all students receive the support they need to be successful on campus and beyond.
