Downtown Campus Admissions
The Undergraduate Admissions Office – Downtown Transfer Center founded the TRansfer Academic Connection (TRAC) in 2011. TRAC was created to attract high achieving transfer students to the University and increase enrollment of high caliber students. TRAC Scholars and their guests gain knowledge about the UTSA campuses, programs and services via faculty mentoring, scavenger hunts and presentations from Financial Aid, the Honors College and Admissions. Each TRAC Scholar also receives a certificate and “Lamp of Knowledge” medallion in recognition of their academic excellence.
The TRansfer Academic Connection (TRAC) Event commenced on February 4, 2012 with 32 prospective students participating. It was a great success, yielding 53% of TRAC Scholars. Last year’s TRAC Event paved the way for the 2nd Annual TRAC Event on February 2. The 3rd Annual TRAC Event will be held on February 8, 2014. Thus far, nearly half of the 44 TRAC Scholars who attended have enrolled for fall 2013.
Please contact the Transfer Center at 210.458.2000 for more information. Prospective transfer students with a minimum 3.25 GPA are encouraged to apply.
