WINS How to Apply*

1. Apply for Admission to The University of Texas at Austin. Once admitted, confirm your acceptance by paying the enrollment deposit. Deposits are non-refundable after May 1, 2024. (Students are able to apply and be accepted to WINS before confirming their attendance at UT.)


2. Complete the online FRI/WINS Application here by April 1. All eligible majors will be able to apply for WINS through the FRI application. Be sure to first read the WINS FAQ page to determine if you will be eligible to apply and if WINS is the right fit for you. WINS Applications will be due with FRI Applications on April 1

Any WINS applications received after the deadline will be marked for our program waitlist. 


3. Acceptance into your Cornerstone Community. WINS is just one of the many program opportunties for entering first-year students in the College of Natural Sciences. As a college, we are committed to making UT Austin a welcoming and inclusive place for all students. We have many different Cornerstones Communities and work to match every incoming student with a small academic learning community of peers with similar academic interests. All incoming students will be informed of their Cornerstones placement in late April 2024.

WINS applications will be reviewed by our admissions panel and acceptances will be announced during CNS Cornerstone Week in April 2024.
