University of Texas at Austin

The University of Texas at Austin Advise TX College Advising Corps founded the Advise TX College Advising Corps program in 2010-2011 with 15 college advisers serving 15 high schools in Houston, San Antonio, and the Rio Grande Valley. In 2017-2018, the program serves 21 high schools with 21 advisers in Austin, San Antonio, El Paso, and the Rio Grande Valley. In an effort to increase the number of low-income, underrepresented, and first-generation students pursuing higher education, the UT Austin program hires, trains, and places exceptional recent college graduates — from all fields of study — to serve as full-time, near-peer college advisers in high schools across the state.
