UT Course Schedule, Fall 1999 Registration Procedure Details

Step One - Pick up your RIS

Pick up your Registration Information Sheet (RIS) at the location indicated for each access period. The RIS lists the dates and times you are scheduled to register, as well as information about advising and any bars to your registration known at the time your RIS was printed.

If you are unable to obtain an RIS during period one, check the alphabetical student roster in any academic dean's office or in Registration Supervision, MAI 16, to verify your major code; then go to the advising location that corresponds to that code. Advising locations are listed in this Course Schedule under Academic Advising.

If your major department does not have a copy of your RIS, or if you lose it, go to Registration Supervision, MAI 16, to obtain a duplicate.

If any personal data on your RIS (such as your student identification number) needs to be changed, go to Registration Supervision, MAI 16.

Address changes may be submitted online via utACCESS, an application on the UT administrative computer system, or via the World Wide Web. A student identification number and PIN or UT EID and password are required to make address changes.

Step Two - Receive advising

If advising is required, your access to the registration system will be prevented until the advising bar is cleared by your major department on the computer. Check with your major department for advising procedures. (See Academic Advising to determine if advising is required for you.)

To change your major, go to the office of the dean. If the new major is in another college or school, go to the dean's office in that college for assistance.

Step Three - Clear bars

Clear financial and nonfinancial bars, if any. Financial and nonfinancial bars are noted on your RIS and will prevent your access to the registration system. It is possible that bars incurred after your RIS was printed have been placed on your record. To clear a financial bar, call TEX at (512) 475-9950 (option 23) before or during registration and charge the amount due to your MasterCard or VISA. You may also take your RIS to the administrative department that has barred your registration, or to the cashiers in MAI 8, pay the amount due, have the bar cleared on the computer, and obtain written proof of payment. Western Union Quick Collect is also an option for clearing a financial bar. To use Quick Collect (cash transaction), complete a blue Quick Collect Payment Form at a Western Union Office (call 1-800-325-6000 to locate the nearest office), indicating that the amount is payable to "University Texas Austin," the code city is "Longhorns, TX," and the type of payment is "financial bars." You must also give your name and student ID number. A nonfinancial bar must be cleared in the administrative department that imposed the bar.

If you have financial bars on your record when you attempt to access the registration system, you may be able to clear them by charging the amount due to your MasterCard or VISA. Because this process depends on agencies and technical systems other than those at the University, under some circumstances you may not be able to clear your bars by credit card and will therefore be denied access to the registration system. It is recommended that you clear your financial bars before your scheduled access times by following the procedures outlined in the preceding paragraph.

Step Four - Prepare your schedule

Complete the Registration Worksheet by selecting your preferred classes, alternate classes, and optional fees before attempting to register. Current availability of seats in a class may be checked online via utACCESS, an application on the UT administrative computer system, or via the World Wide Web. If you register via TEX, you will have a maximum of twenty minutes to complete your registration call, so be prepared. If your call is terminated before you complete all transactions, call back to continue. Transactions completed before the termination are not lost.

Step Five - Access the registration system

Using a touch-tone telephone, call TEX, (512) 475-9800, or go to http://www/utexas.edu/student/registrar/registration/ at your scheduled time and follow the instructions given.

You may access the registration system more than once to alter your schedule of classes and your optional fee selections. However, if you want to make changes or additions to your optional fee selections after you have paid your fee bill, you must go to the sponsoring department.

Step Six - Pay your bill

Make payment for registration according to the Payment Procedure Details.
