We will release information on virtual Plan II Honors information sessions as plans progress throughout the summer.  For questions, please contact Kerry Pasquale:


Mondays and Fridays during the FALL and SPRING semesters, Plan II Honors offers a two-hour information session.  Visitors should check in by 9:50 a.m. at our Plan II Honors suite in Patton Hall (RLP 2.102).  At the end of the first hour of the session, current Plan II student ambassadors escort prospective students to a Plan II World Literature class from 11:00 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. The World Lit class is a (year-long Plan II core curriculum) course which is required of all first-year Plan II students--regardless of AP, IB or SAT II test scores or courses. This class visit often gives prospective students the best sense of what Plan II is all about. While students attend the class, parents stay for a second hour of information and Q&A.   Plan II class visits are restricted to prospective students--no family members or friends may tag along. Most of these are very small seminar-sized classes; we do not wish to disturb the class dynamic with too many visitors. Plan II session dates noted below.

The registration site notes that only two guests are permitted, but it is fine to bring more than two family members to a Plan II session if you wish.  Every prospective applicant should register howeverNo prospective applicant should attend as a guest of another prospective applicant if they also want to attend the Plan II class.

Note:  Please see the Visitors Center for information on campus tours

When Plan II Honors sessions are full, they are really full.  Unfortunately, we do not have space to accommodate walk-in guests.

  • Evaluation criteria

11:00--11:50 a.m.  Class visit for prospective students.  While students visit the class, parents stay for the second hour of the information session. We will answer all questions from students or parents.

Summer visits:

Plan II Honors discourages visits to campus during the summer or over Spring Break, when future students can't attend a Plan II class, meet Plan II Honors majors, meet with faculty or see campus in any way that will be helpful for a student considering college choices.  This is a really active, busy campus—during the long semesters.  In the summer there are a lot of relatively empty buildings on a hot and quiet campus.  A summer visit simply does not give a prospective student good information.  And that's true at the vast majority of college campuses nation-wide.   (Think about bringing prospective students to your high school for a visit in July….  What would they see?)  Only a visit during a long semester can really give a prospective applicant the full picture of what it might be like to be a student at UT Austin.  We cannot meet individually with drop-ins during the summer.
