One of the world’s leading research universities, UT Austin offers top-ranked graduate programs across all disciplines, a welcoming community for international students and great value and affordability.

How to Apply

Change Graduate Major

Current or returning UT Austin graduate students who wish to be considered for admission to a different graduate program must apply for a change of major.
