AM I IN THE RIGHT PLACE?

If you are a current Urban Studies major at UT Austin, probably so! Though we may refer you to another campus resource for additional assistance, we're always eager to assist you as you navigate the university. That being said, a few common concerns are handled primarily by other offices:

Texas One Stop: financial aid, tuition and billing; transcripts and certifications.

Liberal Arts Career Services and Texas Career Engagement: major or career exploration, coaching for your job search, internship questions and guidance, etc.

Liberal Arts Student Division: Dean's Office requests, including Q-drops, Withdrawals, and Pass/Fail transactions; Graduation Applications and related items.

If you'd like to talk through your Q-drop, Withdrawal, or Pass/Fail options with us before visiting the Student Division, please feel free to make an appointment with us below (using the links in the next section).  

CURRENT URBAN STUDIES MAJORS

Please feel free to e-mail henry.hammond@austin.utexas.edu for any general inquiries. A good rule of thumb is to utilize e-mail for any quick questions that would not involve looking up your personal academic record. For anything else, let's have a conversation!

Current Urban Studies majors only can set up advising appointments through Calendly, online here.

INTERNAL TRANSFER STUDENTS

Please see further details on our Admissions page, for more information about internal transfer to Urban Studies.
