Hello! UT Austin does not publicly release detailed transfer acceptance rates by major, so it's somewhat difficult to find specific numbers. However, some general information can still give you an idea of the competitiveness for different majors.

In general, highly impacted majors and programs, such as Business and McCombs School of Business, Engineering, and Computer Science, tend to have lower transfer acceptance rates. These programs usually have additional admission requirements, like prerequisite courses and minimum GPAs, due to their competitive nature.

On the other hand, majors in the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Education may have higher transfer acceptance rates, as these programs are usually less impacted. However, it is important to keep in mind that even in these colleges, certain majors can still be competitive.

The overall transfer acceptance rate at UT Austin is around 23%, but remember, this can vary significantly depending on the specific major or program you're applying to. To improve your chances, maintain a strong GPA, complete prerequisite courses (if any), and write a compelling application essay that highlights your passion and commitment to your chosen major.

Additionally, reach out to the specific department or college within UT Austin where the major you're interested in is housed, to see if they have any guidance on transfer requirements and competitiveness. You may find that individual program advisors can provide you with some helpful insights. Good luck with your transfer application!
