Several DDCE programs designed to create a successful educational pathway for underrepresented and first-generation students — including UT Outreach and two Pre-College Academic Readiness Programs (PCARP), SPURS and ChemBridge — are excited to report that, among their graduating high school seniors, 120 of 199 admitted students will be enrolling in classes at The University of Texas at Austin in Fall 2012.
Compared to the previous academic year, this is an increase from 101 students enrolled and 153 admitted. UT Outreach and PCARP are planning a fall reunion for their students who are currently enrolled at UT. The reunion will provide an opportunity for these programs to reconnect with their alumni on campus and be another source of support as they move toward successful completion of their baccalaureate and graduate/professional degrees.
UT Outreach Centers are designed to assist and encourage top 8% students, potential first generation college students, and FARL (free and reduced lunch) to pursue higher education by offering academic enrichment and college readiness services in Texas high schools. SPURS and ChemBridge are dual-credit programs in Texas high schools that give students the chance to simultaneously earn high school and college credit for rhetoric/writing and chemistry courses, respectively.
