The Coordinated Admissions Program (more colloquially known as "CAP") offers some UT Austin applicants the chance to attend the university if they complete their freshman year at another system school and meet specified requirements.  Each institution in the University of Texas System sets its own admissions standards, and not all schools may accept a particular CAP student.  UT Dallas does not participate in the CAP program, and UTSA , the largest recipient of CAP students, has stated it will be phasing out the program within the next ten years.
