HIES LLC Current Students Webpage

This page is intended for students who have accepted admittance into the HIES LLC program. Rather than bombard you with emails, we will update this page as we have more information.


HIES LLC is a Living Learning Community (a small portion of students may be living off campus) where you get to meet other students that are passionate about Entrepreneurship and will be attending Entrepreneurship events together throughout the school year to learn more about entrepreneurship education and resources available to you. Students in the program may enroll in the Entrepreneurship Minor in the *second semester of their Freshman year* by filling out these university steps https://utdirect.utexas.edu/apps/degree/minors/ Students are required to have a declared major in order to attach the Entrepreneurship Minor to their profile. Certain degree plans may not allow the addition for the Entrepreneurship Minor. Please check in with your major advisor to confirm.

Congratulations! We are looking forward to meeting you in person! Events for HIES LLC will be posted here in August before the start of the Fall 2022 semester. For now, there is nothing else you need to do.

HIES LLC Admits are NOT required to live on campus however it is your responsibility to stay engaged with the HIES LLC community events.

Our office does not have access to your housing information. Please reach out directly to the Housing Team here housing@austin.utexas.edu if you need additional assistance related to your dorm assignment.

Classes are NOT required and are optional during your first year. All students pursuing the Entrepreneurship Minor must complete additional steps through the minor/certificate inventory system AFTER the completion of their first semester on campus.
