Undergraduate students from any major at UT Austin may apply to the Business Public Policy (BPP) program. In order for your application to be considered for acceptance to the program, you must be a degree-seeking student with upper-division standing and have completed 24 hours in-residence prior to applying. Admission to the program is based on a student's overall academic record. For priority admission consideration, apply by March 1st for the following fall semester and by October 1st for the following spring semester. Late applications will be considered, but will not have priority over the current admission class.

The 18 hours of the BPP Certificate courses usually require at least two long semesters to complete due to course availability and sequencing. Students have up to one year following graduation to complete the requirements and receive transcript certification.
