What's new in the schedule for spring 2009.

New fields of study: ESL, IRG, SSC, and WCV. There are four new fields of study for the spring 2009 semester: ESL courses are offered by English as a Second Language Services in the International Office; IRG courses are offered by the International Relations and Global Studies Program in the College of Liberal Arts; SSC courses are offered by the Division of Statistics and Scientific Computation in the College of Natural Sciences; and WCV courses are offered by Western Civilization and American Institutions in the College of Liberal Arts.

GEO became JGB. The John A. and Katherine G. Jackson Geological Sciences Building is now abbreviated JGB.

School of Undergraduate Studies. The School of Undergraduate Studies provides a diverse set of programs and resources that traverse boundaries between colleges and disciplines and enhance the quality of undergraduate education. The following fields of study can be found within the School of Undergraduate Studies: Bridging Disciplines Programs (BDP) and Undergraduate Studies (UGS).

Graduate tuition due date. Graduate and professional students who register by January 23 will have until 5:00 pm January 23 to pay their fall tuition/fee bills. Spring registration will be canceled due to non-payment after 5:00 pm on January 23.

Tuition installment plans. A three-payment payment plan is available. The plan service charge is $15 per semester and late payment fees are $25 for each late payment. A promissory note must be signed by the student before the first tuition installment plan payment will be accepted. To sign the note, go to My Tuition Bill - Promissory Note. Students who do not have a high-assurance UT EID may sign a paper note at the cashiers in MAI 8.

Updates to class listings. When academic units update their class meeting information, the new information is available to students instantly on their class listing page as well as in this Course Schedule. Students are expected to double-check their classes prior to the first class meeting.

Electronic billing of tuition and fees. Since the spring 2006 semester, all tuition and fees have been electronically billed. Students no longer receive a paper bill in the mail. It is the students’ responsibility to make certain that their tuition and fees are paid by the deadlines listed in this Course Schedule. Only students who register in the first access period will receive a notification that their fee bills are ready to be paid, however all students may view their bills at My Tuition Bill. More information on eBilling is available from Student Accounts Receivable.

Official email policy. Electronic mail, or email, is a mechanism for official University communication to students. The University will exercise the right to send email communication to all students, and the University will expect that email communication will be received and read in a timely manner. The complete e-mail policy is available online.

Using the schedule.

The online course schedule provides general information about the university, such as registration procedures, fees and deposits, academic advising requirements, a list of classes containg a significant writing component, an index of final examination times, and grade reporting procedures. Read about these by pressing the links in the navigation bar along the side of any page in the schedule.

The schedule also lets you search for courses. A search will display class listings like the one below. Each class listing has a number of parts.

Most of the Course Schedule is devoted to class listings and associated information. In general, fields of study are arranged alphabetically by college and, within those divisions, alphabetically by department/academic program. Each academic area has a headnote that lists the administrative officers for the area, along with their office addresses and phone numbers. In many cases, important information about course prerequisites, descriptions, and enrollment restrictions is given in the headnote.

Course detail art

Course number.
These start with a field of study made up of one to three letters, and end with a three-digit number. Summer courses have a small letter just before the number: f for first term, n for nine weeks, s for second term, and w for whole session. Note: Within a department, courses alphabetize by field, then sort by their last two digits. (So ACC 353J comes before ACC 179C.) In summer, s courses sort after f, n, and w courses.
Course title.
Titles appear just after course numbers, and apply to all sections below them until a new course appears. For each course number, titles sort alphabetically. Those with topic numbers sort numerically.
Fees.
The fee follows the course title, and is a total of laboratory, supplemental, and incidental class fees. This total applies to all sections of the course.
Noteline.
On detail pages, notes may appear after a course title. These include course descriptions, prerequisites, enrollment and other restrictions, and crosslisted courses, and apply to all sections of the course.
Unique number.
A five-digit number which identifies a particular section of a course. (You'll need this number to register.) On results pages, pressing a unique number opens a page with class details.
Meeting time.
This appears next to a unique number. Weekdays are listed by their initial letters: MWF means a class meets Mon, Wed, and Fri all semester. (If it meets on additional days, on certain dates, or for only part of a semester, this will be noted on the details page.) Class hours follow the weekday. » See standard meeting times.
Room.
The building and room come next. Buildings are abbreviated with three letters. » See the list of buildings and their abbreviations.
Instructor.
When assigned, instructor information follows the room.
Status.
The realtime registration status of a course section displays online, and includes classes which are open, restricted to specific majors or students, closed, closed with a waitlist, or canceled.

Registration procedure.

Here we explain the overall registration process, which consists of registration, tuition/fee payment, and add/drop. If, after reading the detailed information in this Course Schedule, you have questions concerning any procedure, call Registration, (512) 475-7656.

You are strongly advised to use your earliest access period to obtain the best selection of classes and ensure access to the registration system. If you wait until the access periods immediately before the beginning of the semester, you may not be able to complete registration before classes begin and may have to pay a late registration fee. You must clear all bars—advising, financial, and nonfinancial—to be able to access the registration system. Your registration is not complete until you make payment, or confirm the deferment of your payment via My Tuition Bill. Your registration will be canceled, including your standing on waitlists, if you do not make payment by the appropriate deadline.

Registration and payment details.

Step 1 Check your registration information sheet (RIS) online. This will show your access periods, information about advising, advising bars, and any other bars to your registration known at the time your RIS was created. Your RIS must be clear of all bars before you may access the registration system.

Advising locations are listed under advising and major codes.

Make certain that your personal data on your RIS is accurate. Address changes may be submitted online (UT EID and password are required).

Step 2 See your academic adviser, if required or desired (see your RIS or advising and major codes). If you are required to see an advisor and fail to do so, your access to the registration system will be prevented until the advising bar is cleared by your major department. Check with your major department for advising procedures and schedules.

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

Step 3 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 created have been placed on your record. To clear a financial bar, use one of the following methods:

Go to My Tuition Bill or Tuition Loans to pay past due tuition or loans.

Go to What I Owe to pay all other past due balances.

Go to the administrative department that barred your registration or to the cashiers in MAI 8, pay the amount due, have the bar cleared, and obtain written proof of payment.

Use Western Union Quick Collect (cash transaction) by completing 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 UT EID.

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 credit card. 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 above.

Step 4 Register for classes online. Current availability of seats in a class may also be checked via the online Course Schedule.

Step 5 Go to 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 tuition bill, you must go to the sponsoring department.

Step 6 Pay your registration tuition/fee bill in full or in installments (see Payment procedures) by using one of the following methods:

  • Go to My Tuition Bill.
  • Go to the cashiers in MAI 8 (open 8:30–4:30 weekdays only).

If you do not pay your tuition/fee bill, defer your payment to financial aid or a third party, or confirm your zero bill, your registration will be canceled including your standing on waitlists. If the amount due is zero or you are eligible to charge your tuition bill to financial aid, see Methods of Payment.

Add/drop and payment details.

You must complete registration, which includes paying tuition and fees or confirming a zero bill, before you can add/drop.

Step 1 Check your registration information sheet (RIS) online to determine your access period and access time.

Step 2 Go to Registration and follow the instructions given.

Step 3 You will not be sent a bill for added classes. After you have completed your add/drop transactions go to My Tuition Bill online or to the cashiers in MAI 8 (8:30am – 4:30pm weekdays only) for an add bill quote. The bills are automatically updated overnight, so if you add a class on your payment deadline, you must call Student Accounts Receivable at 475-7777 to have your bill manually updated so that you can pay before 5:00 pm. If the changes you made in your schedule result in the assessment of additional tuition and/or fees, you must make payment via My Tuition Bill or by check or money order. Checks or money orders may be deposited in the drop slot near the entrance to MAI 12. Failure to make payment by your deadline will result in the cancellation of your entire registration.

Refunds will be issued the week after the twelfth class day. See fee adjustments for details.

Using computer programs for registration or add/drops

The use of vendor software or other automated programs to perform registration or add/drop processes is prohibited by the University of Texas. Any student identified as using automated systems to perform registration or add/drops may be barred from the registration system.

Student ID cards.

The ID Center is located in FAC 102 and is open 8:30am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.

New students. You may obtain a University identification card at the ID Center. To have an ID card issued, you must present photo identification (e.g., driver's license, passport). A $10 fee is charged for each card issued and must be paid within thirty days at the cashiers in MAI 8, or on the Web by going to What I Owe.

Continuing students. If you have an ID card with a magnetic strip, it will be validated automatically after you have paid your fees. You do not need to report to the ID Center.

Online waitlist registration option.

An online waitlist can be turned on for any section by the department that offers the course. In sections with waitlists turned on, you will get the option of joining the waitlist when the class is full in order to be considered for a roster spot when seats become available. You may join a waitlist only through the registration system. Signing up for a waitlist is not a guarantee that you will be added, but once a waitlist has been started, all additions to the class will happen from the online waitlist. Each waitlist is for a specific section of a course and does not change when seats become available in other sections of the same course. Signing up for an online waitlist constitutes an agreement to pay any additional fees associated with the class being added should a spot become available.

The following features have been developed to assist you in the monitoring and maintenance of your online waitlisted classes:

  • You can maintain your waitlists online at any time. This includes periods outside of registration or your access periods.
  • You will be given the option of indicating one of your scheduled classes to drop if the waitlist add is successful. This is known as a swap class.

You will not be added to a class from an online waitlist if any of the following errors occurs:

  • Time conflict: the meeting time(s) of the section to be added overlaps with the meeting time(s) of another class in your schedule and you have not flagged the scheduled class as a swap.
  • Maximum hours: adding the class would place you over the maximum hours allowed.
  • Duplicate course: you are already scheduled in another section of the course to be added, and you have not flagged the scheduled class as a swap.
  • Course restrictions: you do not meet the enrollment restrictions placed on the course by the department offering the course.

Messages about these errors will be posted on your online waitlist maintenance page in UT Direct. You will remain on the waitlist and you will not be eligible for promotion to the class roster until the error has been corrected.

You are not billed for any waitlisted class unless you are promoted to the class roster. Promotion from the waitlist onto a class roster may change the student's tuition bill; additional charges must be paid by the appropriate deadline.

When to register in spring 09

Here are timelines for the registration process, which includes adding classes, dropping them, and paying your bill.

During period 1 you're given a time based on your last name and your classification last semester. (Your fall 2008 classes DO NOT COUNT when determining this classification.) Find access times by checking the dates below, or see your RIS registration info sheet for your exact times.

Once your first access period ends, you can register in later periods -- but to get the best classes, use your earliest time. If you wait, you might not finish registration before school starts, and will pay a fee. Remember that you have to clear all bars to register, and that your registration only ends when you've paid your bill.

Pay any time after you're billed. Pay at My Tuition Bill, or in ways described in payment procedures.

The university prohibits the use of third-party computer programs to register or to add and drop classes. If you use vendor software or other automated systems to add, drop, or register, you can be barred from online registration.

Payment procedures.

Your registration is not complete until you have gone to My Tuition Bill and made arrangements to have your tuition/fee bill paid. Whether you are paying directly, via financial aid, or via a third party (grants, scholarships, Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan, etc.), you must indicate that you will attend and/or arrange for payment. If you do not pay your tuition bill in full or in accordance with an approved installment plan or indicate that you are paying via financial aid or a third party, you are not registered and you may not attend classes or use University services. It is your responsibility to ensure that your registration has been completed.

To obtain a tuition/fee bill quote or to verify completion of registration, go to My Tuition Bill. If you have questions about tuition and fees, contact Tuition and Fee Billing at fbic@austin.utexas.edu or by phone at (512) 475-7777 (option 1).

To check for receipt of a tuition payment, go to Official Fee Receipts.

Direct questions about tuition bills to Tuition and Fee Billing, MAI 4, (512) 475-7777 (option 1). E-mail inquiries may be sent to fbic@austin.utexas.edu.

Methods of payment.


Electronic Bank Payment.
There are two options available for paying online directly from your bank account. To select either option, go to My Tuition Bill online. Electronic payments that are returned to the University, regardless of the reason, will be treated the same as returned checks. Tuition and financial bars cannot be paid by electronic funds if you have a "no personal check" restriction with Student Accounts Receivable.

  • eCheck. You may pay online just as though you were using a traditional paper check. No authorization form is required. This option does not require a high-assurance EID and can be used by anyone acting as an eProxy.
  • Electronic funds transfer. You may pay by direct transfer of funds from your bank using a pre-established account if you have completed an Electronic Funds Transfer Authorization form. Authorizations may be completed online.

American Express, Discover or MasterCard. Go to My Tuition Bill online to charge the total amount due to your MasterCard, American Express or Discover.

If payment is approved, the registration system will give you an authorization code confirming the transaction. A convenience charge will be added to all tuition and mandatory fee payments made by credit card.

Check or money order. All checks must be drawn on US banks in US dollars. Collection charges resulting from checks drawn otherwise will be charged to the student.

Checks may be presented to the cashiers in MAI 8, placed in the drop slot near the entrance to MAI 12 or, for early registration only, may be mailed. (See early registration below.) Your payment must be received by the payment deadline or your registration will be canceled. Include your UT EID on your check. Send multiple checks together to ensure proper account posting.

If your check is returned to the University, your registration will be incomplete. If payment is not received within ten calendar days of the returned check notice, you will not be registered for classes.

Cash. Do not mail cash payments. Cash payments must be presented to the cashiers in MAI 8 before 5pm on the payment deadline.

Western Union Quick Collect. To use Quick Collect, 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 registration. You must also give your name and UT EID.

Tuition loan. You may apply for tuition loans online. A high assurance EID and password are required to create the promissory note and electronically "sign." If you have a low to medium assurance UT EID, you may apply for a loan and then go to the cashiers in MAI 8 by 4:30pm the same day or the next business day (but by 5:00pm on the payment deadline) to sign a promissory note and complete your registration. You will be required to present a photo ID. Questions concerning tuition loans should be directed to Student Accounts Receivable, (512) 475-7779 (option 2).

Zero bill. If your tuition is zero, you must still confirm your attendance before the payment deadline. If a third party, such as the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan or a grant or scholarship, pays your tuition/fee bill, you must still confirm attendance before the payment deadline. You may do this via My Tuition Bill online. For additional information contact Student Accounts Receivable at (512) 475-7777, (option 1). If you do not plan to attend classes, do not confirm and we will cancel your registration; Student Accounts Receivable will not bill the agency, scholarship, or account for the fees. If you have confirmed and then choose not to attend, you must follow normal withdrawal procedures.

Financial aid. If you are eligible to charge your tuition bill to your financial aid, you may request this charge via My Tuition Bill by the payment deadline.
Questions about eligibility should be directed to the University of Texas at Austin, Office of Student Financial Services, General Accounting Section, 100 W Dean Keeton St, Austin TX 78705, (512) 475-6282.
If you are eligible for financial aid and choose to have registration charges paid directly from your financial aid account by the payment deadline, you will be tentatively registered. If, for any reason, the expected financial aid is not available to pay the registration fees by the twelfth class day, you must make other arrangements to pay fees by that date.

Early registration

You are expected to register at your earliest opportunity. Your tuition/fee bill notification will be sent to your e-mail address on file in the registrar's office. If your addresses are not correct on the RIS, or if you wish to update your address after your initial registration access, update your address online by 5pm, 7 November. If you do not receive your tuition bill, it is still your responsibility to complete registration by the deadline on the Student Accounts Receivable Web site.

The final examination date and time for a class is determined by the class meeting time as listed in the above index. Final examinations for classes that meet at times not listed in the above index are normally scheduled with classes meeting at the indexed time that most closely corresponds to the beginning day and time of the class. For example, the exam for a class that meets T 3:00–6:00 PM will be at the same time as exams for classes that meet TTH 3:30–5:00 PM. If the beginning time of the class is halfway between two standard class beginning times, the class will be grouped with those meeting at the later time. For example, the exam for a class that meets MW 2:30–4:00 PM will be at the same time as exams for classes that meet MWF 3:00–4:00 PM.

Uniform examinations and their correspondent makeup exams are scheduled for certain courses that administer examinations at the same time for all students enrolled in the course. Generally, these examinations are given at times other than the regular examination time. A list of uniform and makeup examinations will be printed in the final examination schedule distributed prior to the end of the semester.

Questions about the final examination schedule should be directed to the Room Scheduling section of the Office of the Registrar at 475-7600.

Final examination policies.

In accordance with Policy Memorandum 3.201, class-related activities, with the exception of office hours, are prohibited on designated no-class days and during the final examination period. These dates are set aside for students to prepare for and take scheduled final examinations. During this period, papers and projects are not to be due, review sessions are not to be scheduled, quizzes are not to be given, and there are not to be any other class-related activities, with the exception of office hours.

The final examination days for the spring semester 2009 are Wednesday, May 13, through Saturday, May 16, and Monday, May 18, through Tuesday, May 19. The designated no-class days are Monday, May 11; Tuesday, May 12; and Sunday, May 17.

There is no University policy that provides relief to students who have three examinations scheduled the same day; in that situation, students may seek the assistance of the course instructor(s), department chair, and/or dean of the college.

The following final examination policies are taken from General Information, chapter 4:

Examinations should begin promptly at the scheduled hour and should not continue beyond the three hours allocated in the official schedule.

No final examinations may be given before the examination period begins, and no change in time from that printed in the official schedule is permitted. An instructor with a compelling reason to change the time of an examination must obtain the approval of the department chair and the dean of the college or school in which the course is taught before announcing an alternative examination procedure to the students.

No substantial examinations may be given during the last class week or during the reading days or no-class days preceding the final examination period. An examination counting for more than 30 percent of the final course grade is considered to be substantial.

A change in the room assignment for a final examination may be made only with the approval of the registrar.

With the approval of the department chair, an instructor may choose not to give a final examination. However, if an examination is given, all students must take it and no exemptions may be allowed except pursuant to a uniform exemption policy announced to the class.

For good cause, an instructor may give a student permission to take an examination with a different class section than the one in which the student is registered.

For good cause, a student may petition his or her academic dean for permission to change the time or place of an examination from that specified in the official schedule. If permission is given by the dean and the instructor, no penalty (such as a reduction in grade) may be assessed.

In a course extending over two semesters, when the subject matter is continuous, the second-semester final examination may include the subject matter of the first semester.

A student may address complaints related to the final examination procedures in a course to the chair of the department or the dean of the college or school in which the course is offered, or to the Office of the Ombudsperson.

Tuition, fees, charges, and deposits.

The following information is not intended to be comprehensive and is subject to change. Tuition, fees, and charges are subject to change by administrative, legislative, or regental action, and changes become effective on the date enacted. The following information should be used only as a guideline for estimating costs. For clarification of any matter relating to payment or refund of tuition, fees, charges, and deposits, contact the office or administrative unit from which the charge or refund originated or consult General Information.

A student must complete registration by the deadline by making a payment, paying with financial aid, or confirming attendance if the amount due is zero. Registrations that are not complete by the deadline will be canceled, and students will not have access to University services.

Tuition.

Flat Rate Tuition for Undergraduate Students.

The flat rate tuition for each college covers the student’s academic program costs, including tuition, mandatory fees and charges, and college and course incidental fees. It does not include the general property deposit, the international student health insurance program fee, the international student orientation fee, the independent study and research fee, or fees for extended trips that require students to live off campus.

The flat rates are based on the average per-hour charges for tuition and fees previously paid by students in each college. Because fees previously varied, flat rate tuition varies by college. There is no restriction on the number of hours a full-time student may take when registered at the full-time rate, as long as the student complies with the quantity of work rule given in General Information.

Students who pursue simultaneous majors in more than one college are charged the higher of the two colleges’ rates.

Flat rate tuition for each college for fall 2008 and spring 2009 is listed by Student Accounts Receivable, Undergraduate Flat Rate Tuition. After selecting classes, the student may view his or her tuition and fee bill at the Student Accounts Receivable Web site.

Flat Rate Tuition for Graduate, Law, and Professional Students.

Graduate, law, and professional students have been charged flat rate tuition since fall 2008. The flat rate tuition for each college covers the student's academic program costs, including tuition, mandatory fees and charges, and college and course incidental fees, and is indexed to the number of credit hours taken. It does not include the general property deposit, the international student health insurance program fee, the international student orientation fee, the independent study and research fee, or fees for extended trips that require students to live off campus.

Students enrolled in joint degree programs are charged a flat rate tuition that is proportional to the number of hours taken in each program.

Flat rate tuition for each college for fall 2008 and spring 2009 is listed by Student Accounts Receivable, Graduate Flat Rate Tuition. After selecting classes, the student may view his or her tuition and fee bill at the Student Accounts Receivable Web site.

Nonresident Tuition for Resident Students.

Because the University is a state-assisted institution, tuition rates are lower for Texas-resident students than for nonresidents, including both out-of-state and international students. Rules affecting residency are given in General Information, chapter 2. In the following circumstances, a student who is classified as a Texas resident may be charged nonresident tuition.

Undergraduates. State law allows colleges and universities to charge a Texas-resident undergraduate the nonresident tuition rate if the student has attempted an excessive number of hours beyond the number required for his or her degree. In addition, a higher tuition rate may be charged if a student enrolls again in a course he or she has completed. Information about charges for excessive undergraduate hours is published by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board at www.collegefortexans.com/getting/additionalcharges.cfm.

As of the academic year 2008-2009, the University does not charge undergraduates additional tuition for an excessive number of hours or for repeated courses.

Graduate students. A student who has earned more than ninety-nine semester hours of credit at the doctoral level is subject to the nonresident tuition rate, even if the student is a Texas resident or holds an appointment that would normally entitle the holder to pay resident tuition. This policy, sometimes called the ninety-nine-hour rule, is authorized by section 54.012 of the Texas Education Code. More information about charges for excessive graduate coursework is available from the Office of Graduate Studies at (512) 471-4511 or www.utexas.edu/ogs/publications/policies/99in99.html.

Fee adjustments.

Refunds are applied to any current and outstanding debts owed to the University. Section 54.006(d) of the Texas Education Code requires that the University refund tuition and fees paid by a sponsor, donor, or scholarship to the source, rather than directly to the student, if the funds were made available through the University. All refund orders are cashed at the Office of Accounting Cashiers in Main Building 8.

Refunds for students withdrawing from the University.

Students who withdraw from the University receive a refund of a percentage of their tuition. The percentage varies according to the student’s effective withdrawal date:

Long session and summer session (whole-session classes).

Prior to the first class day

100% less $15 matriculation fee

100% less $15 matriculation fee

Withdrawal refunds are based on the student’s schedule on the effective date of withdrawal; adds and drops are included in the calculation. In some cases, a student may receive two refund checks, one based on dropped courses and one based on withdrawal percentages for remaining courses.

Students withdrawn by the University because of a returned check are assessed a $25 service charge and a matriculation fee. A student withdrawn by the University for scholastic reasons, class cancellations, or other reasons receives a full refund of fees paid that semester; the matriculation fee is not charged.

A student who withdraws as a result of being called to active military service may choose to receive a refund of tuition and fees. More information is given in General Information.

A student who withdraws after receiving any cash payment from the Office of Student Financial Services may be required to make full or partial repayment. Funds received through the Federal College Work-Study Program are not subject to repayment. Students should contact the Office of Student Financial Services for information regarding repayment obligations.

Student Accounts Receivable initiates refunds for all eligible students who submit approved withdrawal petitions to the Office of the Registrar as described in General Information. A refund is issued no earlier than thirty days after the date the student paid the initial tuition and fee bill. The refund is sent to the address specified on the withdrawal petition.

Adjustments for added and dropped classes.

Charges for added classes must be paid by the end of the twelfth class day in the fall and spring semesters and by the end of the fourth class day in the summer. Nonpayment of tuition for added classes will result in the cancellation of the student's entire registration. Students can determine what they owe by visiting My Tuition Bill.

The University will refund tuition for classes that a student drops (1) during the first twelve class days in a fall or spring semester; (2) during the first twelve class days of a whole-session class in the summer session; or (3) during the first four class days of a first-term, second-term, or nine-week class in the summer session. No refunds are made for classes dropped after these dates. Refunds are issued the week after the twelfth (or fourth) class day. They are mailed to the student’s local address or deposited into the account the student has designated if an electronic funds transfer authorization is in effect. The student may contact Student Accounts Receivable at (512) 475-7777 to verify account information.

Optional fee refunds.

Refunds of the Cactus yearbook fee should be requested at the Texas Student Media office.
Parking permit refunds should be requested at the Parking and Transportation Services office.
Longhorn All-Sports Package refunds should be requested at the Intercollegiate Athletics for Men office.

Tuition rebates for certain undergraduates.

An undergraduate may be eligible for a tuition rebate of up to $1,000 if, at graduation, he or she has attempted no more than three semester hours beyond the minimum number of hours required for the degree.

The University of Texas at Austin views sound academic advising as a significant responsibility in educating students. Academic advisers assist students in developing intellectual potential and exploring educational opportunities and life goals. Many people in the campus community contribute to the advising process, including faculty, staff, student, and professional advisers. Through the relationship established between adviser and student within a friendly, helpful, and professional atmosphere, a student has the opportunity to

  • learn about educational options, degree requirements, and academic policies and procedures;
  • clarify educational objectives;
  • plan and pursue programs consistent with abilities, interests, and life goals; and
  • use all resources of the University to best advantage.

Ultimately, the student is responsible for seeking adequate academic advice, for knowing and meeting degree requirements, and for enrolling in appropriate courses to ensure orderly and timely progress toward a degree. Frequent adviser contact provides students with current academic information and promotes progress toward educational goals. The University supports that progress and encourages effective academic advising campus-wide.

Academic advising during the registration process may or may not be required for every student in a given major. The following table indicates in the column “Advising Note” whether students are required to be advised. If advising is required, the student will have an advising bar that must be cleared by the major department online; until the bar is cleared, the student will not have access to the registration system. If advising is not required, it is optional and the student may report to the advising location listed below.

An undergraduate student with simultaneous majors should follow the advising procedures of both majors.

The major codes for students in special advising areas are six digits: the first four digits correspond to a specific major code, while the last two digits represent the special advising area. For example, 240919 is the major code for finance majors who are in the prelaw special advising area. The advising note for these students is R and the advising location is CBA 2.400.

Absence for military service.
In accordance with Texas education code section 51.9111, a student is excused from attending classes or engaging in other required activities, including exams, if he or she is called to active military service of a reasonably brief duration. The student will be allowed a reasonable time after the absence to complete assignments and take exams. Policies affecting students who withdraw from the University for military service are given in the General Information Catalog.
Access periods.
The designated time periods when specified groups of students may access the registration system. You may access the registration system as many times as necessary during your scheduled and open periods. Consult the access schedules printed in this Course Schedule or your online Registration Information Sheet (RIS) to determine when you are eligible. If you attempt to access the system at a time when you are not eligible, access will be denied. You are advised to access the system during the earliest period for which you are eligible. If your session is terminated before you complete your transactions, log back in to continue. All transactions completed prior to the termination are saved.
Add/drop.
Students who have enrolled and made payment toward their tuition and fee bill are considered to be "add/dropping" when they make changes to their schedule. The payment deadline for students participating in add/drops is different than the payment deadline for students who are continuing their initial registration.
Adding a class.
When you attempt to add a class to your schedule, the registration system checks certain conditions. If any of the conditions below prevent you from adding the class, and you do not receive the waitlist option, you will be told.
  • Requested unique number is invalid.
  • Requested class is canceled.
  • Requested class is filled to closing limit.
  • Requested class is restricted to certain majors or individuals.
  • Requested class creates a time conflict in your class schedule.
  • Requested class is a duplicate.
  • Requested class exceeds the registration limit for number of hours:
Maximum number of hours.

undergraduate

  • fall/spring 17
  • summer 14

graduate

  • fall/spring 15
  • summer 12

law

  • fall/spring 16
  • summer 14
  • Requested class exceeds the limit of fifteen classes.
  • If the requested class is an upper-division course in the College of Communication, you may not meet the upper-division GPA requirement.
  • If the requested class is RHE 306, you may be ineligible based on your month of birth. Only students with an even-numbered month of birth may register for RHE 306 in the fall; only students with an odd-numbered month of birth may register in the spring. There are no eligibility requirements based on month of birth in the summer session.
  • Student does not meet prerequisites for the requested class.
Advising bar.
A code placed on the record of a student who is required to consult an academic adviser. A student may not access the registration system until the advising bar is cleared by his or her major department on the computer. See advising and major codes or consult your RIS to determine if advising is required for you.
Attendance.
Regular attendance at all class meetings is expected. Instructors are responsible for implementing attendance policy and must notify students of any special attendance requirements. Special regulations of colleges and schools, required by the unique nature of their programs of study, may be enacted through the normal approval process. These special regulations may not conflict with University regulations on class attendance and absence.
Cancellation of registration.
A student may cancel their unpaid registration by dropping all their classes prior to their first payment deadline. The University will drop all the student's classes if they do not make payment by the deadline. Once payment has been made, the student must withdraw if they do not wish to continue at the University. (Also see "Withdrawal.")
Classes added, canceled, or changed after the Course Schedule is printed.
You may select classes added after the Course Schedule is published when you use the search option in the registration system. Additional information about added courses is available from the academic departments offering them. If a class is canceled or the meeting time or room is changed after you have registered for it, that information will be reflected on your class listing page. It is your responsibility to double-check your class listing prior to the first class meeting.
Classification.
The designation freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, or graduate. Undergraduates are classified as freshman, sophomores, juniors, or seniors, based on the number of semester credit hours passed and transferred, regardless of the hours' applicability toward a degree. Semester hours used to determine classification include coursework completed in residence, transferred credit, and credit by examination, extension, and correspondence. Hours in progress and hours failed are not counted in determining classification.
Classification by semester credit hours.

freshman

0-29 hours of credit

sophomore

30-59 hours of credit

junior

60-89 hours of credit

senior

more than 89 hours of credit

A graduate student is one who has been accepted to the Graduate School, a graduate program in the Red McCombs School of Business, or the School of Law. Degree-holding but nondegree-seeking students are classified as a separate group for registration purposes in access period one.
Your classification is listed on your RIS. Classification may change as a result of additional credit hours earned at the end of a semester or summer session. Use your updated classification to determine your access time.
Class meeting time and place.
The credit value of courses is expressed in semester credit hours. Most courses are designed to require approximately three hours of work a week throughout the semester for each semester hour of credit given; that is, for each hour a class meets, an average of two additional hours of preparation is expected of the student. The time requirement in the laboratory, field, or studio varies with the nature of the subject and the aims of a course, so there is no fixed ratio of laboratory to class hours.
Most courses meet three hours a week in the fall and spring semesters and have a value of three semester hours. In a six-week summer term, courses meet seven and a half hours a week for three semester hours of credit.
See meeting time for standard meeting times and interval between classes.
The time or meeting place of a class may not be changed without notifying the registrar in advance. A class may not meet in a facility that was not assigned to it.
Class rolls
Faculty Members: If students (except auditors) whose names are not on your official class roster (twelfth class day for long-session semesters, fourth class day for summer terms) are attending your class, send them to the registrar's office to obtain official documentation of their registration. A student must be registered for a course to receive credit for it.
If a student is not on your CLIPS class roster, they should not be allowed to attend until they are on the roster.
Errors in your class roster should be reported to the Office of the Registrar, 475-7656.
Class title.
The class title appears to the right of the course number and applies to all of the class sections listed below it until a new title is printed. In general, class titles are listed in alphabetical order for each course number except where preceded by a topic number.
Completing registration.
In order to secure classes selected during registration, a student must take action before the payment deadline to complete the registration process. The student must make a payment if there is an amount due; pay with financial aid if eligible; or confirm attendance if the entire tuition/fee bill is zero. Zero bills can occur when the entire bill is being paid by a grant or a third party such as the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan. Students take these actions at My Tuition Bill.
Continuing student.
A student who is enrolled for the fall semester 2008 at the University. A student who receives an undergraduate degree from the University and enters the Graduate School is considered a new student. (Also see "New student" and "Readmitted student.")
Course abbreviation.
Course abbreviations are listed with the names of the fields of study in the pull down menus on the search page. Within a department or program, courses are listed alphabetically by field of study.
Course number.
(see also Credit value and Letters) Courses with the same abbreviation are listed in numerical order by the last two digits of the course number and then alphabetically by any subsequent letters. For example, a course numbered 679K precedes one numbered 379L. In the summer session, course numbers are prefixed by a letter:
Summer session prefixes.

f

first term

n

nine-week term

w

whole session

s

second term

Summer session courses prefixed by f, n, and w are listed together in numerical order; courses prefixed by s are listed separately in numerical order following the f, n, and w courses.
Credit card transactions.
You may charge your tuition and fees to your credit card. A 1.75% convenience charge is added to all tuition and mandatory fee payments, or tuition loan payments, made by credit card. You may also use a credit card to clear most financial bars to gain access to the registration system. 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 financial bars before your scheduled access times by following the procedures outlined in registration procedures.
Questions about credit card transactions should be directed to Student Accounts Receivable, (512) 475-7777.
Credit value.
Each field of study is identified by a name and a one-, two-, or three-letter abbreviation. Each course in the field is identified by a number made up of three digits or three digits and a letter. The first digit of a course number indicates the credit value of the course in semester hours. Courses numbered 201 through 299 have a value of two semester hours; 301 through 399, a value of three semester hours; and so on. A zero as the first digit indicates that the course is noncredit. If the course number ends with the letter A, B, X, Y, or Z, see letters below. A course with the single-word title Laboratory or Discussion is also noncredit, regardless of its course number; these sections are always taken concurrently with a credit-bearing lecture course.
Directory information.
The following policies are taken from General Information, Appendix C.
Sec. 9-201. Directory information
(a) “Directory information” for a student is defined as the following:
  • name
  • local and permanent addresses
  • electronic mail addresses
  • public username (UT EID)
  • telephone listing
  • date and place of birth
  • major field(s) of study
  • participation in officially recognized activities and sports
  • weight and height if a member of an athletic team
  • dates of attendance
  • enrollment status
  • degrees
  • awards and honors received (including selection criteria)
  • most recent previous educational institution attended
  • classification and expected date of graduation
  • student parking permit information
(b) Directory information is public information and will be made available to the public except as noted in subsection 9–201(c).
(c) A currently enrolled student may restrict access to all or some of their directory information or may remove all or some of their information from public directories through Restrict My Info during the first twelve class days of any semester or the first four class days of any summer term. A request to restrict information will remain in effect until revoked by the student.
eBilling.
Students who register early will receive an electronic billing notification for tuition and fees. No paper bills will be mailed. Students must keep their e-mail address current. Notices are sent to the e-mail address on the student record as verified at the time of registration. Electronic billing notifications are also sent for tuition and emergency cash loans.
eCheck.
An online payment that functions like a traditional paper check. It does not require a high-assurance EID and can be used by anyone acting as an eProxy. Transactions that are returned to the University, regardless of reason, will be treated as returned checks.
Electronic funds transfer.
An electronic withdrawal of funds from your bank account using pre-established authorization. Account information is stored and can be used for money in (refunds, financial aid) or money out (payments). A high-assurance EID is required. Transactions that are returned to the University, regardless of reason, will be treated as returned checks.

F thru J

Fees.
The total of field trip, laboratory, supplementary, and incidental fees for a class is listed after the class title.
Financial bar.
A code placed on the record of a student to deny access to the registration system because of a delinquent debt to the University. Bars incurred after your RIS is created may be placed on your record prior to your access period(s). In most cases, financial bars may be paid by credit card (see above) or by check or cash at the cashiers in MAI 8. Western Union Quick Collect may also be used to pay most financial bars. Some financial bars must be resolved in person at the administrative office that imposed the bar. Returned check bars cannot be paid by eCheck or electronic funds transfer.
If you clear a bar by check and your check is returned to the University, your registration will be incomplete. If payment is not received within ten calendar days of the returned check notice, you will not be registered for classes.
Headnote.
A notation in the course schedule that lists the administrative personnel for the area, along with their office addresses, phone numbers, and web sites. In many cases, important information about course prerequisites, descriptions, and registration restrictions is given in the headnote.
In absentia registration.
A candidate for a degree who has completed the requirements for graduation and needs to register only for the purpose of having a degree conferred, may register in absentia. Undergraduate students must initiate in absentia requests through their academic dean by March 30, 2009. Graduate students may only register in absentia in the fall semester. If payment is received by the deadline, the in absentia registration is complete. If you apply near the deadline, hand carry the request and payment to Registration, MAI 16, to ensure payment by the deadline.
Instructor.
When academic units update the instructor of record, and if space allows, the instructor's last name and first initial are shown to the right of the meeting location.

» to A thru E | F thru J | K thru O | P thru T | U thru Z

K thru O

Letters.
Two courses that have the same abbreviation and the same last two digits may not both be counted for credit unless the digits are followed by different letters. For example, English (E) 325 and 325K may both be counted. The letter A following a course number designates the first half of the course; B, the second half. For example, Music 612A is the first half of Music 612; Music 612B, the second half. The letter X following a course number designates the first third of the course; Y, the second third; and Z, the last third. For example, Law 621XY means that the first two-thirds of the six-hour course, Law 621, is being given during one semester. Credit value for course numbers ending in A, B, X, Y, or Z is reduced accordingly. MUS 612B, for example, has a value of three semester hours rather than six.
Meeting place.
The building and room or other meeting location is given after the meeting time. Buildings are identified by three-letter abbreviations, which can be interpreted using the list of buildings printed with the campus map.
Meeting time.
The class meeting time is printed to the right of the unique number in the course schedule. Days of the week are listed by their initial letters:
  • M – Monday
  • T – Tuesday
  • W – Wednesday
  • Th – Thursday
  • F - Friday
The designation MWF, for instance, means that the class meets every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday throughout the semester. Occasionally, a note under the title indicates that the course meets on additional days, or that the course meets only on specific dates or for a part of the semester. Following the abbreviation for the day(s) of the week is the class meeting time. Standard meeting times are as follows:
Standard class meeting times.

fall/spring

  • MWF 8-9am, 9-10am, 10-11am, 11-12noon, 12-1pm, 1-2pm, 2-3pm, 3-4pm, 4-5pm

Some classes have more than one meeting time that students must incorporate into their schedules. These additional times are printed immediately below the first meeting time.
My Tuition Bill site.
Secure site at www.utexas.edu/business/accounting/sar. Paper tuition and fee bills are not mailed; students receive an electronic billing notification. Pay your tuition/fee bill using eCheck, credit card or by electronic funds transfer. UT EID and password are required. Because this process depends on agencies and technical systems other than those at the University, under some circumstances you may not be able to pay by credit card.
New student.
A student who has not previously attended the University, or a student enrolling in the Graduate School for the first time.
Nonfinancial bar.
A code placed on the record of a student to deny access to the registration system because a requirement of an administrative office has not been satisfied. See "Registration and Payment Details," step three, for information on clearing bars. Bars incurred after your RIS is created may be placed on your record prior to your access period(s). A nonfinancial bar must be resolved in person at the administrative office that imposed the bar.
Notelines.
The text that appears below a class title in the detailed view of a class in the online Course Schedule may include a description, prerequisite, enrollment or other restrictions, and cross-listed courses. Prerequisites and descriptions for all courses are given in the undergraduate, graduate, and law school catalogs.
Optional fee changes.
If you want to add or delete an optional fee after your preliminary registration, you may use the Web during any of your access times. To make changes after you have paid your fee bill, go to the sponsoring department.

» to A thru E | F thru J | K thru O | P thru T | U thru Z

P thru T

Prerequisites.
Certain course prerequisites listed in the Course Schedule and/or University catalogs are checked during registration. Students may be allowed to enroll in these courses but are advised that it is still their responsibility to ensure that they meet the prerequisites, since these may be enforced at any time by the department offering the course.
Rank.
Except in the School of Law and the College of Pharmacy, the last two digits of the course number indicate the rank of the course. If 01 through 19, the course is of lower-division rank; if 20 through 79, of upper-division rank; if 80 through 99, of graduate rank.
Readmitted student.
A former student at the University who has applied for readmission and has been accepted for the spring semester 2009.
Registration by proxy.
For registration and advising transactions that must be completed in person, a student may allow another person to act on his or her behalf. However, federal law (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974) and University regulations do not permit the release of confidential information without written authorization. To allow someone to act as your proxy, you will need to submit a release to Registration in MAI 16. You must sign the release and your proxy must come to MAI 16 to pick up the release. The release and your proxy's photo ID must be presented for each transaction. Note: Your proxy may not sign a promissory note on your behalf.
Registration information sheet (RIS).
Secure Web site at https://utdirect.utexas.edu/registrar/ris.WBX that lists personal information, advising information, access times, and financial and nonfinancial bar information. A high assurance EID and password are required.
Religious holy days.
A student who misses classes or other required activities, including examinations, for the observance of a religious holy day should inform the instructor as far in advance of the absence as possible, so that arrangements can be made to complete an assignment within a reasonable time after the absence.
Retroactive withdrawal.
Students are expected to follow the normal withdrawal procedure whenever possible. Requests to withdraw after the semester has ended are considered only if the student had urgent, substantiated, nonacademic reasons and was unable to withdraw by the deadline. Requests for retroactive withdrawal must be submitted to the student's dean before the end of the next long-session semester.
Syllabus.
Faculty members are required to provide a syllabus to students by the first meeting day of the class and it must contain the following items:
  • course name and number
  • faculty member name
  • faculty member office location and office hours
  • TA name, office location and office hours if course has a TA
  • overview of course, including course prerequisites
  • grading policy for course, including whether class attendance is used in determining the grade
  • dates during semester for examinations and assignments that count 20% or more of the total course grade
  • final exam date and time
  • required materials for the course (textbooks, supplies, packets, etc.)
  • course web site
  • and this statement:
    "The University of Texas at Austin provides upon request appropriate academic accommodations for qualified students with disabilities. For more information, contact the Office of the Dean of Students at 471-6529, 471-6441 TTY."
Title IX/ADA/504 coordinators.
Federal law prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender (Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972) and disability (Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990). The University has designated the following persons as Coordinators to monitor compliance with these statutes and to resolve complaints of discrimination based on gender or disability.

Disability (Section 504/ADA)

  • For students and employees: Linda Millstone, Associate Vice President for Institutional Equity and Workforce Diversity, Director of Equal Opportunity Services, NOA 4.302 (101 East 27th Street), (512) 471-1849

U thru Z

Unique number.
The five-digit number(s) listed below each title and its associated information identifies each section of the course. This number is required to complete registration transactions.
Use of letters.
Two courses that have the same abbreviation and the same last two digits may not both be counted for credit unless the digits are followed by different letters. for example, Mechanical Engineering (M E) 136N and 236N may not both be counted; however English (E) 325 and 325K may both be counted.
The letter A following a course number designates the first half of the course; B, the second half. For example, Music (M) 612A is the first half of Music 612; Music 612B, the second half. The letter X following a course number designates the first third of the course: Y, the second third; and Z, the last third. Credit value for courses with numbers ending in A, B, X, Y, or Z is reduced accordingly. MUS 612B, for example, has a value of three semester hours rather than six.
UT EID.
An electronic identifier that allows a student to use secure services on the World Wide Web. You may activate your UT EID and choose a password at www.utexas.edu/eid.
Waitlists.
Students use online waitlists to indicate that they wish to be added to a class if a seat becomes available. Academic departments use online waitlists to manage registration in some classes. The online waitlist system adds eligible students to classes on a first-come first-served basis. Students use their UT EIDs to access their waitlists at https://utdirect.utexas.edu/registrar/waitlist/
wl_see_my_waitlists.WBX
.
Web-based class sites.
Password-protected class sites such as Blackboard and CLIPs are associated with many University classes. Syllabi, handouts, assignments, and other resources may be available within these sites. Site activities may include exchanging e-mail, engaging in class discussions and chats, and exchanging files. In addition, electronic class rosters are a component of the sites. Students who do not want their names included in these electronic class rosters must restrict their directory information in the Office of the Registrar, MAI 1 or online.
For information on restricting directory information, see directory information.
Western Union Quick Collect.
Payment for delinquent debts and registration may be made by Western Union Quick Collect. To use Quick Collect, 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 and the code city is Longhorns, TX. The type of payment should be listed as either financial bars or registration. You must also give your name and UT EID. This transaction is cash only.
What I Owe.
Secure site at www.utexas.edu/business/accounting/sar. Pay most departmental charges and clear financial bars using eCheck, credit card or by electronic funds transfer. UT EID and password are required. Because this process depends on agencies and technical systems other than those at the University, under some circumstances you may not be able to pay by credit card.
Withdrawal.
To resign from the University as a student for the current semester. A student cannot withdraw from the University simply by not going to class or dropping all classes; he or she must follow the withdrawal procedure.

After tuition and fees have been paid, a student must apply to his or her dean for permission to withdraw. Refunds are processed according to the refund schedule on the Withdrawal Petition and Refund Request form. Students who withdraw prior to the first day of classes will receive a 100 percent refund of tuition and required fees, less a $15 matriculation fee. Refunds for students withdrawing after choosing the three-payment plan (not available during summer sessions) are based on the total tuition and fees, not the installment amount paid. Withdrawals for medical reasons must be approved by the associate director for clinical services of University Health Services, who will instruct the registrar to withdraw the student under specified conditions. The refund, if any, will be determined by the effective date on the withdrawal petition form.

Greek lower-division sequences. Students beginning ancient Greek may take the regular sequence, GK 506 and 507, the accelerated course GK 606Q, or the intensive summer courses GK 804 and GK 412, followed by 311, and 312K or 312L.

Latin for degree requirements. Latin courses may be used to satisfy the foreign language requirement for the Bachelor of Arts, Plan I. For further information, see the Undergraduate Catalog.

Latin lower-division sequences. In general, students with no previous credit in Latin, from high school or another college, should follow the regular sequence (LAT 506, 507, 311, and 312K or 312M or 316). However, advanced and graduate students and students with a strong linguistic background should follow the accelerated sequence (LAT 506Q or 508, and 511K, for students who receive a grade of A in 506Q or 508).

The courses normally used to satisfy this proficiency in German are 310, 612, 312L or 312W. GER 310 may, with consent of the German undergraduate adviser, be taken concurrently with GER 312K. Only one of these fourth-semester courses will count toward satisfaction of the foreign language requirement, but another may be taken if the student wants the second course for elective credit. After completing the fourth-semester requirement, students may take GER 118C or 218C for lower-division elective credit.

For all languages taught in the department (Danish, Dutch, German, Norwegian, Swedish, and Yiddish) a two-semester sequence, 604 and 612, is available.

This course is a standardized three-hour introduction to American national, state, and local political institutions and policies, and includes a study of the United States and Texas constitutions. An honors section of GOV 310L, American Government-Honors, designed specifically for Plan I honors and Plan II students, is offered once a year, usually in the fall semester. The prerequisite for GOV 310L is twelve semester hours of college coursework.

    Credit for the first three hours of the legislative requirement can be earned by eligible students who make a satisfactory score on the College Board Advanced Placement Examination and CLEP American Government Subject Examination with supplemental test items in Texas government. Information about this test may be obtained from the Division of Instructional Innovation and Assessment, 2616 Wichita, 471-3032. Only those students who meet all of the following requirements are eligible to receive credit by examination for GOV 310L: 1) have neither a passing nor failing grade for GOV 310L; 2) are not currently enrolled in GOV 310L; 3) have not taken the CLEP American Government Subject Examination within the past six months.

  • GOV 312L. Although GOV 312L topics vary from semester to semester, the course may not be repeated for credit. This course allows the student to select one of several sections on problems and policies that pertain to American national, state, and local political institutions. An honors section of GOV 312L, Iss & Policies in Amer Gov-Honors, designed specifically for Plan I Honors and Plan II students, is offered once a year, usually in the spring semester. The prerequisite for GOV 312L is twenty-four semester hours of college coursework, including GOV 310L. For information regarding credit by examination for GOV 312L, contact the Division of Instructional Innovation and Assessment, 2616 Wichita, 471-3032.
  • GOV 105. This course, offered only by correspondence, is designed for transfer students who need only one hour of Texas government to fulfill the legislative requirement.

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers introductory courses designed to meet the educational requirements of distinct groups of students. The goals and prerequisites of each of the introductory tracks are summarized below.

  • Students are encouraged to carefully check that they meet the prerequisites prior to enrolling in a course. Students who do not meet course prerequisites are subject to being dropped from the course by the department. Contact the chemistry undergraduate course office, WEL 2.212 (471-1567) with questions about prerequisites or for information about how to furnish proof of meeting a prerequisite.
  • CH 301/302 is intended for students in technical areas. CH 301H/302H is an alternative to CH 301/302 for chemistry and biochemistry majors and other honors program students. These are the only two sequences that provide the prerequisites for advanced chemistry courses. The prerequisite for CH 301* or 301H is credit or registration for M 408C or 408K, or concurrent registration or credit in a higher level mathematics course for which M 408C or 408K is a prerequisite (such as M 408L, 408M, 408D, or 427L). The prerequisites for CH 302 are CH 301 or 301H with a grade of at least C, and credit or registration for M 408C or 408K, or concurrent registration in a higher level mathematics course for which M 408C or 408K is a prerequisite (such as M 408L, 408M, 408D, or 427L). Testing schedules for the math placement exam may be obtained from the Division of Instructional Innovation and Assessment at 232-2662, or via their website at www.utexas.edu / academic / mec / index.shtml.
  • *All sections of CH 301 (1) are intended for students who have completed or are enrolled in calculus. Separate sections of CH 301 labeled 301 (4) will have the math prerequisite waived as long as the student is concurrently enrolled in M 505G (for Natural Science majors) or M 305G (non-Natural Science majors).
  • CH 204 and 317 are laboratory courses at the first-year level. CH 204 is the introductory laboratory course to be taken by students in most technical areas, and provides the laboratory prerequisite for advanced chemistry courses. CH 204 requires four laboratory hours and one hour of discussion a week for one semester. CH 317 is required for Bachelor of Science in Chemistry majors and recommended for Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry majors. CH 317 requires one lecture hour and six laboratory hours a week for one semester. CH 204 and 317 may not both be counted.
  • CH 304K followed by CH 305 is a two-semester sequence designed for nonscience majors. CH 304K IS NOT INTENDED as a preparatory course for CH 301. For students who do not need CH 301 or 302, the 304K/305 sequence (or 301/305) may be used to satisfy the six-hour science requirement for some degree plans; check with the dean's office of the college or school in which you are registered to determine whether these courses meet the requirements for your degree plan. CH 304K has no prerequisite. The prerequisite for CH 305 is 304K; CH 301 is acceptable as a prerequisite for CH 305.
  • CH 313N/314N is designed for nursing and certain human ecology students.

The University of Texas at Austin tests for credit are offered in CH 301 and 302. The test in CH 301 is recommended for engineering majors (with the exception of electrical and computer engineering majors) and physics majors who have studied chemistry in high school and who do not have credit for CH 301 or its equivalent. Contact the Division of Instructional Innovation and Assessment, 2616 Wichita (232-2662), for further information on tests for CH 301, 302, 304K, or 305.

In addition to regularly scheduled classes, hour quizzes and midterm examinations may be held at times to be announced in the following courses: CH 301, 301H, 302, 302H, 204, 304K, 305, 310M, 310N, 210C, 313N, 314N, 317, 318M, 318N, 431, 339K, 339L, 353, 153K, 354, 154K, 354L, 455, 456, 369, 369L, 370, 380L, 381M, 382K, 382L, 386J, 387K, 390K, 390L, 391, 392C, 392E, and 392J.

The Department of Computer Sciences offers a variety of courses for students wishing to major in computer sciences or simply to obtain some knowledge of computing.

  • C S 302 is an introductory course for students wishing to learn concepts of computer science. It contains a small amount of programming (just to see how it works). C S 320N is an upper-division topics course for non-C S majors that may be repeated for credit when the topics vary. There are no prerequisites for either class. C S 302 and 320N count toward satisfying the science requirement for nonscience majors in most degree plans.
  • C S 303E is an introductory course in programming and computer science concepts for students who have had little or no exposure to computer programming. C S 303E is one of two entry points into the Elements of Computing certification sequence (see below) designed specifically to complement non-C S degrees. There are no prerequisites for this class.
  • C S 305J is an introductory course in programming and computer science concepts. Typically it will be taken by students who are planning to major in computer sciences, but are not prepared to take the first course in the C S major, C S 307 (see below). The prerequisite is credit with a grade of at least C or registration for M 305G, or equivalent score on the SAT Mathematics Level 1 or Level 2 test.
  • C S 307 is the first course in the computer sciences major. It assumes familiarity with and facility in programming in a high level programming language. The prerequisite is one of the following: one year of programming in high school, C S 303E (if completed prior to fall 2008) or C S 305J with a grade of at least C, or consent of instructor; and credit or registration for M 408C, 408K, or a score of at least 520 on the SAT Mathematics Level 1 or Level 2 test.

Elements of Computing sequence. The goal of the Elements of Computing program is to offer students who are not Computer Sciences majors the opportunity to gain exposure to computing concepts and skills necessary to be computer literate in today’s society, or to acquire a more substantial computing background. The program is a 12-hour curriculum that can fit into almost any degree program at the University. Students with no programming experience take C S 303E as the first Elements course.

Almost all mathematics courses have as a prerequisite either a minimum satisfactory score on the College Board SAT Subject Test in Mathematics Level 1, or credit for a specific college mathematics course with a minimum satisfactory grade. These subject tests should not be confused with the quantitative portion of the SAT Reasoning Test, formerly known as the SAT I Test, commonly known as the SAT. Although Mathematics Level 1 is the required test, students may present instead a score on the College Board SAT Subject Test in Mathematics Level 2.

The Mathematics Level 1 Test is given nationwide at College Board test centers six times a year, on the University of Texas at Austin campus just before registration for each semester and the summer session, and during summer orientation sessions. Testing schedules, which appear in the program of orientation activities, may also be obtained from the Division of Instructional Innovation and Assessment.

Advice on which entry-level mathematics course to take, based on a student's Mathematics Level 1 Test score, is available from the Mathematics, Physics, and Astronomy Advising Center in RLM 4.101, or from the Division of Instructional Innovation and Assessment.

Early in the fall and spring semesters, a computer check will be run to verify that all students enrolled in M 303D, 305G, 408C, 408D, 408K, 408L, 408M, 316, 316K, 316L, and 427K meet the course prerequisite. Students who do not have the prerequisite on record prior to registering or who do not bring proof of meeting the prerequisite to the mathematics department by the eighth class day will be immediately dropped from the course. During the summer session, the prerequisite checks and drops will be done on the second class day.

In all other courses, the instructor is responsible for verifying that the students have the necessary prerequisites.

The Department of Mathematics offers coursework designed to meet the educational requirements of specific groups of students. Each track has its own goals and prerequisites.

The courses and prerequisites are listed below. Test scores given are for the Mathematics Level 1 Test only.

  • M 302 is an introduction to mathematical ideas. It fulfills the general education requirement in mathematics. The prerequisite is three units of high school mathematics at the level of Algebra I or higher, and a passing score on the mathematics section of the THEA Texas Higher Education Assessment test. A student may not earn credit for M 302 after having received credit for any calculus course.
  • M 303D is a course with topics that have been selected from algebra, statistics, and mathematics of investments. It is a course that fulfills the general education requirement in mathematics for students in the social sciences, Business Foundations Program, and other fields. The prerequisite is a Mathematics Level 1 Test score of at least 430 or M 301 with a grade of at least C. A student may not earn credit for M 303D after having received credit for M 305G or any calculus course.
  • M 305G and M 505G are precalculus courses and emphasizes trigonometric and other elementary functions, as well as coordinate systems. M 505G is restricted to students in the College of Natural Sciences and M 305G is restricted to students outside the College of Natural Sciences. The prerequisite for these courses is a Mathematics Level 1 Test score of at least 480 or M 301 with a grade of at least C. Credit for M 305G may not be earned after a student has received credit for any calculus course with a grade of C or better.
  • Calculus is offered in two equivalent sequences. There is a two-semester sequence, M 408C/408D, which is recommended only for students who score at least 600 on the Mathematics Level 1 Test, and a three-semester sequence, M 408K/408L/408M. A third option, which satisfies the calculus requirement for some degrees, is the two-semester sequence M 408K/408L. The two-semester sequence M 408K/408L is also a valid prerequisite for some upper-division mathematics courses, including M 325K, 427K, 340L, and 362K.
  • M 408C/408D is a two-semester treatment of the techniques used in differential and integral calculus of functions of one or more variables. The prerequisite for M 408C is a Mathematics Level 1 Test score of at least 560, or M 305G or 505G with a grade of at least C. Students who score less than 600 on the Mathematics Level 1 Test are strongly advised to take M 408K instead. The prerequisite for M 408D is M 408C or the equivalent with a grade of at least C. Each course has three lecture hours with regular faculty members and two discussion meetings with teaching assistants each week. Only one of the following may be counted: M 403K, 408C, 408K. Only one of the following may be counted: M 403L, 408D, 408M.
  • In the fall semester, some sections of M 408D are reserved for students with a score of at least 4 on the College Board Calculus AB Examination or a score of at least 3 on the Calculus BC Examination. Students with a score of 4 or 5 on the Calculus BC Examination may enroll in a reserved advanced placement section of M 427L in lieu of M 408D. The advanced placement sections of M 408D and 427L are honors sections and are designed for students with above-average mathematical aptitude and a desire to study in greater depth the material of these courses.
  • M 408K/408L/408M is a three-semester treatment of the techniques used in differential and integral calculus of functions of one or more variables. The prerequisite for M 408K is a Mathematics Level 1 Test score of at least 520, or M 305G or 505G with a grade of at least C. The prerequisite for M 408L is M 408K or the equivalent with grade of at least C. The prerequisite for M 408M is M 408L or the equivalent with a grade of at least C. Each course has three lecture hours with regular faculty members and two discussion meetings with teaching assistants per week. Only one of the following may be counted: M 403K, 408C, 408K. Only one of the following may be counted: M 403L, 408D, 408M.
  • M 408K/408L will have uniform final and make-up examinations given on dates designated by the Office of the Registrar. Generally, these final examinations are given at times other than the regular examination times.
  • M 316 is an elementary introduction to statistical methods for data analysis; knowledge of calculus is not assumed. Students with a background in calculus should take M 362K and either 358K or 378K instead. The prerequisite for M 316 is a Mathematics Level 1 Test score of at least 430 or M 301 with a grade of at least C.
  • M 316K is an analysis from an advanced perspective of the foundations of arithmetic, and is required for prospective elementary teachers. The prerequisite is M 302, 303D, 305G, 505G, or 316 with a grade of at least C.
  • M 316L is an analysis from an advanced perspective of the foundations of geometry, statistics, and probability. The prerequisite is M 316K with a grade of at least C.
  • There are two basic linear algebra classes. M 341 is taught from a theoretical perspective and enrollment is restricted to mathematics majors. M 340L is taught from an applied perspective and enrollment is restricted to non-mathematics majors. Under unusual circumstances, exceptions can be made by the Undergraduate Faculty Advisor in Mathematics.

Conference courses. Unless a conference course lists a specific time and topic, it is an individual instruction course. To register for an individual instruction course, the student must make arrangements for the course with a faculty member and provide written approval to the mathematics departmental office on a form available in RLM 8.100 or 4.101.

Teacher certification. Students seeking certification to teach secondary school mathematics should consult the UTeach Advisor in PAI 4.02 concerning their choice of courses.

Writing component courses. In addition to designated regular courses being offered with a substantial writing component, the department permits a limited number of students to earn writing component credit by adding an individual instruction writing component module to certain organized courses. (Caution: The instructor of such a course is under no obligation to supervise such an individual writing component module.) Students who register for M 325K, 328K, 333L, 139S, 343K, 343L, 343M, 348, 361K, 365C, 365D, 367K, 367L, 368K, 373K, 373L, 474M, or 376C may receive substantial writing component course credit by concurrently registering in the section of M 175 designated as writing component. This concurrent registration requires written consent of instructor; forms are available in RLM 8.100 or RLM 4.101.

Statistics. The following courses are probability and statistics courses offered by the mathematics department: M 316, 339J, 449P, 349R, 358K, 362K, 362M, 374G, 378K, 384C, 384D, 384E, 384G, 385C, 385D, 389J, 389P, 394C, and MST 398R.

Actuarial studies. The following special actuarial studies courses are frequently offered by the mathematics department in addition to standard mathematics classes needed for actuarial work: ACF 329, ACF 129D, M 139S, 339J, 339U, 339V, 339W, 349P, 349R, 389F, 389J, 389P, 189S, 389U, 389V, and 389W.

P. R. Antoniewicz
student office RLM 5.216, C1600, 471-8856

Physical science courses 303, 304, and 367M are conducted by the inquiry laboratory method of instruction. In this method, the student makes direct observations of nature and is led by questions to infer the conclusions logically permitted by the observations. The instructor is carefully trained NOT to tell students what to expect or conclude, but, instead, to ask other leading questions or to suggest further tests of a student's tentative conclusion. These courses are especially recommended for future teachers.

Enrollment is limited to twenty-two students per section to allow the instructor to interact adequately with each student.

Grades in inquiry laboratory courses are determined by students' scores on quizzes and the final examination and the instructor's evaluation of student's deductive reasoning ability, class participation, and performance of required class activities.

Students who prefer a more traditional presentation of physical science subject matter (i.e., the normal lecture method) should choose a course such as PHY 309K, 309L, or one of the PHY 341 topics. Students with a background in trigonometry should consider enrolling in PHY 302K and 302L.

Students with credit for any physics course will not be allowed to take P S 303 without the prior approval of the undergraduate adviser. Students with credit for any physics course except PHY 309K will not be allowed to take P S 304 without the prior approval of the undergraduate advisor.

For all Bachelor of Science in Physics degree majors who have studied chemistry in high school and who do not have credit for CH 301 or its equivalent, the University of Texas at Austin Test for Credit in Chemistry 301 is required. Contact the Division of Instructional Innovation and Assessment, 2616 Wichita, at 471-3032, for further information.

The Department of Physics offers the following introductory course sequences.

  • PHY 301/316/315 is a calculus-based course sequence for physics majors and students in other scientific disciplines. A background in physics at the high school level is strongly recommended. If a deficiency exists, the recommended remedial course is PHY 306.

    Note All introductory physics courses, with the exception of PHY 306, 108, 309K, 309L, and 110C have accompanying laboratories which must be taken concurrently with these courses unless the student has already received credit for the laboratory.

  • PHY 302K/302L is a noncalculus-based technical course sequence for students who need to fulfill a general physics requirement. A mathematics proficiency at the level of M 305G is required.
  • PHY 303K/303L is a calculus-based introductory course sequence for engineering students. A background in physics at the high school level is strongly recommended. If a deficiency exists, the recommended remedial course is PHY 306. Four evening exams will be scheduled during the semester: Wednesday evenings for PHY 303K and Thursday evenings for PHY 303L. Students who register for either of these courses should not register for any other Wednesday or Thursday evening classes to avoid time conflicts. There are mandatory recitation sections with each course.
  • PHY 306 is a preparatory course for students who have not taken high school physics and who have weak problem solving skills. PHY 306 is especially recommended for engineering students who score less than 620 on the SAT II: College Board Achievement Test in Mathematics Level I. A mathematics proficiency at the level of M 305G is required. It is assumed that students are taking M 408C concurrently. PHY 306 may not be used to fulfill the area C requirement or toward the total number of hours required for any degree.
  • PHY 309K/309L is an introduction to physics for students with a high-school-level algebra proficiency who do not intend to do further work in natural sciences, engineering, mathematics, or medicine.
  • PHY 317K/317L is a calculus-based general introductory physics course sequence. It is especially recommended for premedical and chemistry students and others in the biomedical sciences.

Only one of the following first-semester courses may be counted toward any degree without prior approval of the department: PHY 301, 302K, 303K, 309K, 317K. Only one of the following second-semester courses may be counted toward any degree without prior approval of the department: PHY 302L, 303L, 309L (or 609B), 316, 317L.

Complete prerequisites for undergraduate physics courses are given in chapter 9 of the Undergraduate Catalog; prerequisites for graduate physics courses are given in the Graduate Catalog.
