You belong here! The real estate credential (minor/certificate) is available to all full-time UT undergraduates in business and non-business majors. Bring your enthusiasm and make it happen.


    An undergraduate certificate or minor can be pursued alongside any undergraduate degree at UT Austin. This transcript-recognized real estate program requires application and admission. It is offered only for current undergraduate students and is not a standalone program for people that have already graduated. The certificate does not include real estate licensure – a different certification not associated with our program, offered by the State of Texas.

My favorite part about the certificate was that I received access to McCombs classes and professors without being a business major.
