The Keep Running with Us (KRWU) program is a streamlined, invite-only admissions process to retain talented University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) undergraduate students and recent undergraduate alumni in pursuit of their graduate education. Students are nominated based on academic performance or faculty nomination.

The KRWU application can be completed in minutes and removes many of the common barriers that come with applying to graduate school. Selected candidates are fast-tracked through the graduate admissions process that waives test scores and supplemental documentation including statement of purpose, letters of recommendation and resume/CV.

How to Receive an Invitation

UTSA students are nominated by their academic department or faculty member based on the student’s academic performance. If you feel like you meet the criteria but haven’t received an official invitation, please contact your academic department for more information.
