Automatic Admission to Texas Public University for Top 10% Top students in Texas are eligible for automatic admission to any public university in Texas under state admissions policies. Under House Bill 588 passed by the 75th Legislature in 1997, students who are in the top 10 percent of their graduating class are eligible for automatic admission to any public university in Texas. However, SB 175 caps the number of students admitted under the top 10% law to 75% at UT Austin; thus, acceptance rates will vary. The University will determine the acceptance rate. In accordance with Title 19 Texas Administrative Code (TAC), §5.5(e), high school rank for students seeking automatic admission to a general academic teaching institution on the basis of class rank is determined and reported as follows: 1. Class rank shall be based on the end of the 11th grade, middle of the 12th grade, or at high school graduation, whichever is most recent at the application deadline. 2. The top 10 percent of a high school class shall not contain more than 10 percent of the total class size. 3. The student’s rank shall be reported by the applicant’s high school or school district as a specific number out of a specific number total class size. 4. Class rank shall be determined by the school or school district from which the student graduated or is expected to graduate.
