Undergraduate international admissions services moved to one office

Share this Story

(Sept. 13, 2010)--To improve services for prospective international students at UTSA, undergraduate admissions services for international students moved Sept. 8 from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions to the Office of International Programs (OIP) in Main Building Room 1.210 on the Main Campus.

"We believe that consolidating the key functions of recruitment, admission and initial matriculation to a single office will be a benefit to students," said George Norton, UTSA assistant vice president for student affairs, undergraduate admissions, orientation and family programs. "With this new arrangement of services, OIP will be able to work more closely with prospective international students to help them take full advantage of OIP programs. In turn, Undergraduate Admissions will focus its full efforts on its core mission of recruiting and enrolling increasingly well-prepared domestic undergraduate students."

Among others, these changes will be implemented in OIP:

  • Hiring of international undergraduate admissions coordinator
  • New Undergraduate International Admissions phone line: 210-458-7995
  • Undergraduate International Admissions e-mail:
  • Undergraduate admissions advising for drop-in international student visitors
  • Direct admissions advising and support for prospective international students
  • Production and processing of admission letters and e-mails
  • International recruitment with outside agencies and vendors
  • Processing of prospective international undergraduate student admission and visa-related documents
  • Responsibility for the International Undergraduate Admissions website

The project was coordinated by the Office International Programs, Office of Undergraduate Admissions, Office of the Executive Vice Provost and Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.

Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
