Discounted Summer Courses. The university is offering summer classes at a reduced rate in order to support continued learning and to help students remain on track toward their degrees. Specific high-demand courses in summer 2023 will be offered at a discounted rate of $500 (for Texas residents) and $2,000 (for non-Texas residents). This discounted rate only applies to undergraduate students. We encourage students to take advantage of these affordable, lowered tuition rates and get ahead this summer! Visit summer 2023 tuition for more information. 

Beginning fall 2022, the academic calendar has been modified to better meet educational needs, support immediate and long-term innovation, and support our academic mission, while ensuring compliance with university guidelines and federal and state regulations. Changes include:

  • A new semester model, with two designated subterms in the fall and spring semesters
  • New start dates for the fall and spring terms
  • An extended fall break
  • An earlier end date for the spring semester
  • A reduced final exam schedule

​You can view the 2023-2024 academic calendar here. Learn more about the academic calendar changes and view a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) on the Changes to the Academic Calendar webpage. 

Beginning in fall 2021, all students will sign a Financial Responsibility Statement before registering for classes. The goal of the Statement is to be transparent and help you fully understand your role and financial obligation when attending UT Austin. By signing, you acknowledge your responsibility to pay tuition and fees by the payment due date and if you receive financial aid and scholarships, those resources will apply to your tuition. The Financial Responsibility Statement for the summer 2023 semester is now available for you to review and sign here.

New Fields of Study. Applied Archaeology (AAR) (graduate only) will be administered by the Applied Archaeology program.

Urban Design (U D) (graduate only) will be administered by the Urban Design program.

Retired Fields of Study. Electrical Engineering (E E) (replaced by ECE).

Identity Management and Security (IMS) (replaced by ISP).

Islamic Studies (ISL).

Visual Art Studies (VAS) (replaced by AED).

Urban Design (UDN) (replaced by U D).

Changed Fields of Study. Art Education (AED). Extended to include undergraduate courses.

Law (LAW). Replaced all but three undergraduate course numbers (x00-x79) with graduate-level course numbers (x80-x99).

Don’t forget to use the UT Planner!  The UT Planner, an online class schedule planning tool for students, was implemented a few years back for all students to utilize and now shows mode of instruction!  The planner allows students to search for, create, and save a variety of personalized schedule options based on their preferred courses and scheduling breaks. Additionally, the UT Planner gives students the ability to compare up to four schedule options at a time based on their availability during the day.

The UT Planner is a planning tool only, and students must still register at their designated registration times via the online registration system.

Sex discrimination (including discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or pregnancy status), sexual harassment, sexual assault, unprofessional and/or inappropriate conduct, interpersonal violence (including domestic violence and dating violence), and stalking will not be tolerated and will be subject to disciplinary action.

        Payment plans

        Please note: The installment plan is now available for summer session tuition payments.

        Full Payment Plan. Full payment must be received and posted to your account no later than the payment deadline in the registration sequence table as shown on My Tuition Bill. Confirmation of attendance must be made if the student has a zero bill.

        Installment plan. Tuition and required fees may be paid in installments. The first installment consists of:

        • The minimum payment due as displayed on My Tuition Bill
          • $1,500 for Texas Residents
          • $5,000 for Non-Residents

        The first installment is due by the deadline specified in the registration sequence table or as shown on My Tuition Bill. No late initial installment payments will be accepted; failure to pay the first installment by the due date will result in cancelation of registration. The installment plan is not available to students who register after June 3, 2022.

        Students will electronically sign an installment plan promissory note when they sign the Financial Responsibility Statement.

        Tuition and most required fees are payable in installments. The two-payment installment plan requires minimum payment of $1,500 for Texas residents and $5,000 for non-Texas residents. The remainder of deferrable fees is payable in one installment due June 6th, 2023. A $15 service charge to cover the cost of handling will be assessed to each student who has not paid their balance in full by 11:59 PM (CST) on June 6th, 2023, adjusted for adds and drops. Bills for these payments are sent to the student's e-mail address. Paper bills are not mailed.

        By opting into the installment plan you agree to pay the remaining tuition and fees on time. A $25 late charge will be assessed for the final installment payment if received after July 13th, 2023 at 11:59pm CST. If you are enrolled in the installment plan and subsequently receive a financial aid award, your total tuition and fees will be deducted from your award at the time of disbursement.

        Visit My Tuition Bill to receive an official tuition payment receipt.

        Direct any questions about tuition bills to Texas One Stop. E-mail inquiries may be sent to onestop@utexas.edu

         

         

        Methods of payment

        Electronic Payment. There are two options available for paying online directly from your bank account. To select either option visit My Tuition Bill. Electronic payments that are returned to the University, regardless of the reason, will be treated the same as returned checks. Tuition and financial holds 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 an upgraded 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. This payment method requires an upgraded EID and cannot be used by anyone acting as an eProxy.
        • Credit Card. Go to My Tuition Bill to pay with MasterCard, Discover, Visa, or American Express. A convenience fee of 2.3% will be charged at the time of payment for all tuition and mandatory fee payments made by credit card. (Rate is subject to change.)

        If payment is approved, the registration system will give you an authorization code confirming the transaction.

        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 must be mailed to UT Cashiers office. Your payment must be received and posted by the payment deadline or your registration will be canceled. Make checks payable to The University of Texas at Austin and include your UT EID on the check. Multiple checks must be sent together to ensure proper account posting. All checks must be drawn on a bank within the United States of America. 

        Mailing Checks. It is critical that you do not mail a check to the commercial courier address through the US Postal Service.

        Checks mailed using US Postal Service, including Express Mail overnight delivery, should be mailed to

        The University of Texas at Austin

        Student Accts Receivable

        PO Box 7398

        Austin TX 78713-7398

        Austin TX 78712-1669

        Please contact the Texas One Stop regarding outside (non-UT) scholarships, as Student Accounts Receivable cannot process outside scholarship checks.

        Tuition loan. You may apply for tuition loans online.  An upgraded EID and password are required to create the promissory note and electronically sign. Students who have not upgraded their UT EIDs to high assurance should follow the emergency process to do so.  Questions concerning tuition loans should be directed to Texas One Stop

        If your payment is returned to the University, for any reason, 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. For additional information regarding returned payments and charges assessed please see Student Accounts Receivable Returned Checks.

        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, pays your tuition bill you must confirm attendance before the payment deadline. You may do this via My Tuition Bill. For additional information contact Texas One Stop. If you do not plan to attend classes do not confirm attendance and we will cancel your registration. Student Accounts Receivable will not bill the agency, scholarship, or account for the fees. If you have confirmed attendance and later choose not to attend you must follow normal withdrawal procedures.

        Financial aid. If you are eligible to pay all of your tuition bill with your financial aid, you must do so by clicking the "Pay with Financial Aid" button on My Tuition Bill or pay any remaining balance by the payment deadline.

        Questions about eligibility and financial aid awards should be directed to Texas One Stop.

        If you are eligible for financial aid and choose to have charges paid directly from your financial aid account by the payment deadline, you will be tentatively registered. If the expected financial aid is not available to pay all of your tuition bill by the twelfth class day, you must make other arrangements to pay your bill in full by that date.

        Contact your instructor or department for specific class information.

        Faculty and students should not plan to travel until after the last university final exam day.

        The following information is not intended to be comprehensive and is subject to change based on 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 further clarification on any matter, contact the office or administrative unit from which the charge or refund originated, or consult the General Information Catalog online.

        Securing Your Registration 

        In order to secure your registration each semester by your deadline, please take one of the following actions on the My Tuition Bill site:

        • Make a payment
        • Click the "Pay with Financial Aid" button
        • Click the "Confirm Attendance" button

        Once you have signed your Financial Responsibility Statement, and your registration is complete, you will see a sentence on My Tuition Bill in green which states “Attendance Confirmed”. If you do not see this, you still have action to take.

        You must take an action prior to the published deadline or your entire registration will be canceled, and you may incur late registration fees when you re-register. The minimum balance displayed on My Tuition Bill must be paid by the payment deadline or the university may cancel the student's registration in its entirety. Any student whose tuition is not paid in full by the 4th class day, June 6th, 2023 by 11:59pm CST will automatically be entered into an installment plan and assessed a $15 installment plan fee. To avoid the installment plan fee, all tuition must be paid before the installment deadline. If you choose to pay in installments, any remaining balance due after the 4th class day is due by July 13th, 2023 by 11:59pm CST. Failure to pay all tuition by July 13th, 2023 by 11:59pm CST will result in a $25 late fee assessment and the entire balance will become a financial hold immediately.

        If you have a zero amount due, you must either click the "Confirm Attendance" or "Pay with Financial Aid" button on the My Tuition Bill site  by the payment deadline to complete your registration. Always remember, a zero bill does not mean zero responsibility. Failure to take action on your tuition bill by the deadline will result in canceled registration and denied University services.

        Learn about our accepted methods of payment and our payment plans under the "Installment Plan" section. If your registration is not complete by the steps described above by the payment due date, your registration will be canceled and you may incur a late registration fee to re-register.

        Flat Rate Tuition For Undergraduate Students

        The flat rate tuition for each college covers the tuition, mandatory fees and charges, and college and course incidental fees. It does not include the general property deposit, the international fees, 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. 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 the General Information Catalog.

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

        Longhorn Fixed Tuition is an optional tuition program only available to undergraduate students enrolling at The University of Texas at Austin for the first time. Initially, fixed tuition rates are 8% higher than traditional rates because they are based on the projected average of flat rate tuition over the next four years. For four consecutive academic years students will pay a fixed tuition rate each semester. Please note that this program is still flat rate tuition and is based on the number of hours a student enrolls in each semester. The cost of tuition between the Traditional and Longhorn Fixed tuition rates is not the same. For a comparison of Longhorn Fixed and Traditional tuition rates, visit Texas One Stop's Tuition and Fee Rates page. For more information and eligibility requirements, see the Longhorn Fixed Tuition website.  Students must enroll and/or un-enroll by the 12th class day (4th class day of a summer session) of their first semester in attendance to participate in Longhorn Fixed Tuition. Changes to a student’s tuition program cannot be changed after that date.

        Students who do not enroll in the Longhorn Fixed Tuition program will default to Traditional flat rate tuition. After selecting classes, the student may view their tuition and fee bill at the My Tuition Bill site.

        Flat Rate Tuition For Graduate, Law, and Professional Students

        Graduate, law, and professional students are charged flat rate tuition for the college in which they are enrolled.  Each tuition rate covers the student's tuition, mandatory fees and charges, and college and course incidental fees. It does not include the general property deposit, the international fees, the independent study and research fee, or fees for extended trips that require students to live off campus.

        Graduate or professional 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 is available on the Tuition and Fee Rates page. After selecting classes, the student may view their tuition and fee bill at the My Tuition Bill 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 "Residency Regulations" in the "Admissions" section of the General Information catalog. In the following circumstances, a student who is classified as a Texas resident may be charged nonresident tuition.

        Undergraduates. State law allows 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 their degree. In addition, universities are allowed to charge a higher tuition rate if a student enrolls again in a course they have completed. 

        As of the current academic year, the University of Texas at Austin 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 online from the Office of Graduate Studies.

        As of the current academic year, the University of Texas at Austin does not charge graduate students additional tuition for an excessive number of hours.

        Tuition Exemptions

        Tuition exemptions are issued only for the period in which a student is currently enrolled. Unless otherwise stated, applications must be submitted each semester no later than the date of Commencement at the end of the spring semester or the student’s official graduation date.

        Senate Bill 1210 (83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session) adds a grade point average requirement for persons to receive continuation awards through the program. The bill also establishes a limit to the total number of hours, cumulatively, that a student may take and continue to receive awards through this program.

        Tuition Waivers

        A waiver allows for a portion of a student’s tuition not to be paid. The student is responsible for payment of the remaining tuition not covered by the waiver. Tuition waivers are issued only for the period in which a student is currently enrolled. Unless otherwise stated, applications must be submitted each semester no later than the date of Commencement at the end of the spring semester or the student’s official graduation date.

        Third-Party Billing

        Agencies outside the University may set up third-party billing arrangements that pay all or part of a student’s tuition bill. The student is responsible for any amount not covered by the third party. Arrangements must be made in advance with the Student Accounts Receivable Office.

        » Available third-party billing

        Fee Adjustments and Refunds

        Refunds are applied to any current and outstanding debts owed to the University before becoming available to the student. 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.= (i.e. third-party billing)

        Withdrawals

        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.

        official withdrawal date

        percentage refunded

        prior to the first class day

        100 percent less $15 matriculation fee

        during the first five class days

        80 percent

        during the second five class days

        70 percent

        during the third five class days

        50 percent

        during the fourth five class days

        25 percent

        after the fourth five class days

        none

         

        Summer session: first-term, second-term, and nine-week classes.

        official withdrawal date

        percentage refunded

        prior to the first class day

        100 percent less $15 matriculation fee

        during the first, second, or third class day

        80 percent

        during the fourth, fifth, or sixth class day

        50 percent

        after the sixth class day

        none

        Withdrawal refunds are based on the student’s schedule, including adds and drops, as of the effective date of withdrawal and the amount of tuition that has been paid.

        Students withdrawn by the University because of a returned check are assessed a $25 service charge and a $15 matriculation fee. A student withdrawn by the University for scholastic reasons, class cancelations, or other reasons receives a full refund of fees paid that semester (i.e. no other fees are assessed).

        A student who withdraws as a result of being called to active military service may choose to receive a refund of tuition and fees. For further information please check the General Information Catalog.

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

        Student Accounts Receivable initiates refunds for all eligible students who submit approved withdrawal petitions to the Office of the Registrar (these refunds are issued no earlier than 30 days after the date the student paid the initial tuition bill). The refund is 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. Additional information can be found in the General Information Catalog.

        Adding and Dropping Classes

        Applicable charges for added classes must be paid by the end of the 12th class day in the fall and spring semesters and by the end of the 4th class day in the summer. If you add or drop courses your tuition bill will be updated overnight. My Tuition Bill will reflect any changes that have been made. If the changes made in your schedule result in the assessment of additional tuition you must pay the amount due. It is the student's responsibility to keep track of changes made to their tuition bill. Any student whose tuition is not paid in full by the 4th class day, June 6th, 2023 by 11:29pm CST, will automatically be entered into the installment plan, and will incur a $15 fee. To avoid the installment plan fee, all tuition must be paid before the installment deadline. If you choose to pay in installments, any remaining balance due after the 4th class day is due by July 13th, 2023 by 11:59pm CST. Failure to pay all tuition by July 13th, 2023 by 11:59pm CST will result in a $25 late fee assessment and the entire balance will become a financial hold immediately.

        A full refund of tuition overpayment will be issued if there is a decrease in your tuition bill amount caused by a class being dropped within the following time frames: (1) during the first twelve class days in a fall or spring semester; (2)  during the first four class days in any summer session. No refunds are made for classes dropped after these dates. Tuition bills are recalculated and refunds, if applicable, are issued the week after the 12th class day. Refunds are mailed to the student’s local address or deposited into the account the student has designated if an electronic funds transfer authorization (EFT) is in effect. The student may contact Texas One Stop to verify account information.

        Tuition Rebates For Certain Undergraduates

        Undergraduate students enrolled in the Traditional Tuition program may be eligible for a tuition rebate of up to $1,000, and students enrolled in the Longhorn Fixed Tuition program may be eligible for an additional $2,500 rebate.  Students interested in the tuition rebate must begin their application process with the dean’s office of the college in which they are enrolled. For eligibility requirements, please see the tuition rebate web page.

         

         

         

         

        Academic Advising | Summer 2023

        The University of Texas at Austin views sound academic advising as a significant responsibility in educating students, supports orderly and timely progress toward a degree, and encourages effective academic advising campus-wide.

        Academic advisers help students:

        • develop intellectual potential
        • explore educational opportunities and life goals
        • learn about educational options, degree requirements, and academic policies and procedures
        • clarify educational objectives
        • plan and pursue programs consistent with abilities, interests, and goals
        • use all resources of the University to best advantage
        • stay up to date with current academic information
        • promote progress toward educational goals

        Students are responsible for:

        • seeking academic advising
        • knowing and meeting degree requirements
        • enrolling in appropriate courses to ensure orderly and timely progress toward a degree

        Academic advising may or may not be required to register for classes in a given major. See "Advising Note" in the table below to determine if your major requires academic advising:

        Advising Required:  

        Advising bars must be cleared by the major department online. Until the bar is cleared, you will not have access to the registration system.

        No Advising Required:  

        You can still choose to meet with an adviser at the advising locations listed below.

        Undergraduates with Simultaneous Majors:  

        Follow the advising procedures of both majors.

        Special Advising Area Major Codes:  

        First four digits correspond to a specific major code, and the last two digits represent the special advising area. For example: 240919 is the finance major code for the prelaw special advising area. The advising note is R and advising location is CBA 2.400.

        Glossary of terms in the schedule | Summer 2023

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

        A thru E

        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 period
        The designated time period when a student may access the registration system. A student may access the registration system as many times as necessary during their scheduled and open periods. Consult the access periods printed in this Course Schedule or your online registration information sheet to determine when you are eligible. If a student attempts to access the system at a time when they are not eligible, access will be denied. Students are advised to access the system during the earliest period for which they are eligible. If a session is terminated before transactions are complete, the student may log back in to continue. All transactions completed prior to the termination are saved.
        Add/drop
        Changes that a student makes to their schedule after they have made payment towards their tuition and fee bill are considered adds and drops, and the period during which they make these changes is referred to as add/drop. The payment deadline for students participating in add/drop may be different from the payment deadline for students who are completing their initial registration.
        Adding a class
        When a student attempts to add a class, the registration action that results adds this class to a student's schedule. If any of the conditions below prevent you from adding the class, and you do not receive the waitlist option, you will be told. Common error messages include:
        • Requested unique number is invalid.
        • Requested class is canceled.
        • Requested class is filled to closing limit.
        • Requested class is reserved 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

        • Requested class exceeds the limit of fifteen classes.
        • If the requested class is an upper-division course in the Moody 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 restriction placed on the record of a student who is required to consult an academic adviser that prevents the student from accessing the registration system. The bar may only be removed by his or her major department. Also see advising and major codes or consult your registration information sheet to determine if advising is required for you.
        Attendance
        Regular attendance at all class meetings is expected. Instructors are responsible for implementing attendance policies 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.
        Cancelation of registration
        The student's registration will be canceled if payment is not received 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.")
        Classification
        The designation freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, or graduate. Undergraduates are classified 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 non-degree seeking students are classified as a separate group for registration purposes in access period one.
        A student's classification is listed on their registration information sheet. Classification may change as a result of additional credit hours earned at the end of a semester or summer session.
        Class meeting time and place
        The time and place a class meets is published in the Course Schedule and can change. The student is responsible for checking the time and meeting place of a class prior to the first class meeting.
        Also 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 roster
        An official list of students registered for a course accessible by faculty and staff. 
        Faculty Members: If there are students attending your class (except auditors) whose names are not on your official class roster by the twelfth class day for long-session semesters, or fourth class day for summer terms, 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 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, Registration at 475-7656.
        Class title
        The class title appears to the right of the course number in the Course Schedule and applies to all of the class sections listed below it. 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 one of the following actions 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 must take these actions at My Tuition Bill. If a student fails to complete registration their classes will be dropped.
        Continuing student
        A student who was enrolled for the previous long session 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 in the Course Schedule. Within a department or program, courses are listed alphabetically by field of study.
        Course number
        The three to five digit number/letter combination that follows the course abbreviation. (also see 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 convenience charge is added to all housing, 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. In most cases, financial bars can be paid at What I Owe or by cash or check at the cashiers in MAI 8.
        Questions about credit card transactions should be directed to Student Accounts Receivable, (512) 475-7777.
        Credit value
        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.
        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.

        The following policies are taken from General Information Catalog, Appendix C.
        Sec. 9-201. Directory information
        (a) “Directory information” for a student is defined as the following:

        • electronic mail addresses
        • public username (UT EID)
        • telephone listing
        • place of birth
        • major field(s) of study

        (b) Directory information is public information and will be made available to the public unless the student has restricted it as described 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 during Period 1 will receive an electronic billing notification for tuition and fees. No paper bills will be mailed. Students are responsible for keeping their e-mail address current. Notices are sent to the e-mail address on the student's 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 an upgraded 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). An upgraded EID is required. Transactions that are returned to the University, regardless of reason, will be treated as returned checks.
        Emergency Contact Information
        Per The University of Texas' Emergency Notification Policy in the General Information Catalog, at least one emergency contact person must be listed for each enrolled student. Additionally, a student's cell phone number is collected so that the University has the ability to contact that student about critical incidents on campus via text messaging technology. Information gathered remains confidential to the extent allowed by law.  
        You must:
        • designate a Primary Emergency Contact and provide the contact's name, daytime phone number, and complete US address.
          • if under 18, list a parent or legal guardian as the primary emergency contact.
        • provide your cell phone number and provider OR indicate that you have no cell phone or would like to opt out of receiving campus text alerts via cell phone.
        Each student must designate either or both of their emergency contacts as a missing persons contact. If a student is identified as missing, Student Emergency Services will notify the designated emergency contact within twenty-four hours of receiving the report.
        This information must be reviewed annually. Even if there are no changes to your emergency contacts, you must indicate that this information is still correct.

        Fees
        Some classes will have lab, supplemental, or incidental fees associated with them. The pdf version of the Course Schedule will display the fee if there is one.
        Financial bar
        A restriction 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 registration information sheet is created may be placed on your record prior to your access period(s). In most cases, financial bars may be paid at What I Owe or by check or cash at the cashiers in MAI 8. 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 a student clears a bar by check and the check is returned to the University, the student's registration will be incomplete. If payment is not received within ten calendar days of the returned check notice, the student's registration will be canceled.
        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 reservations 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 the deadline. There is no fee for undergraduate students to register in absentia.
        • Graduate students may only register in absentia in the fall semester. Graduate students must pay a fee. If payment is received by the deadline, the in absentia registration is complete.
        Instructor
        A faculty member designated to a particular course. 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.

        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 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
        Secure site at www.utexas.edu/business/accounting/sar where students can pay tuition, defer to Financial Aid, or confirm attendance. 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 restriction 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. A nonfinancial bar must be resolved in person at the administrative office that imposed the bar. Bars incurred after your Registration Information Sheet is created may be placed on your record prior to your access period(s). 
        Notelines
        The text that appears below a class title in the detailed view of a class in the online Course Schedule. They may include a description, prerequisites, reservations, and cross-listed courses. Prerequisites and descriptions for all courses are given in the undergraduate, graduate, and law school catalogs.

        Prerequisite
        A department may require that a student complete specific coursework before registering for a course. 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 next semester.
        Registration by proxy
        For registration transactions that must be completed in person, a student may designate 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 designate someone to act as a proxy, the student must give a release to that person. The release must state the name of the proxy and what the proxy is authorized to do. It must also be signed and dated by the student. The release and the proxy's photo ID must be presented for each transaction. Note: The proxy may not sign a promissory note on the student's behalf.
        Registration information sheet
        Secure web site at Registration Information Sheet that lists personal information, advising information, access times, and financial and nonfinancial bar information. An EID and password are required to access the site.
        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."

        Unique number
        The five-digit number associated with a specific section of a course in a particular semester. The unique number is listed below each title in the Course Schedule and its associated information identifies each section of the course. This number is required to complete registration transactions.
        UT EID
        An electronic identifier that allows a student to use secure services online. A student, guest, or parent may activate a 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.
        Web-based class sites
        Password-protected class sites such as Canvas 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 16 or online.
        For information on restricting directory information, see directory information.
        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% refund of tuition and required fees, less a $15 matriculation fee. This is referred to as a cancelation. 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.

        Physical education for the general college student. PED 101C-108S courses are physical activity courses provided on an elective basis to the general college student. Hours earned by taking physical activity courses may be counted in the lower-division hours required for a degree as approved in the degree programs of the various colleges and schools.

        Those classes not designated for men or for women are coeducational and may be selected by both men and women.

        The meeting times listed in this Course Schedule include any time necessary prior to and following the activity period of one hour.

        The classification "beginning" or "basic" indicates that the instruction will be based on the assumption that the students enrolled have very little or no prior formal instruction or equivalent experience in the activity. To qualify for an intermediate- or advanced-level course, a student must have completed a semester or the equivalent of beginning- or intermediate-level instruction, respectively.

        Students with health problems or other limitations on physical activity should consult with the medical staff of the Student Health Center for health grade classification and advice regarding participation in physical activity courses.

        The Department of Chemistry 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 Department of Chemistry Student Services office, WEL 2.302 (471-1567; or visit “undergraduates” at the department URL listed above) with questions about prerequisites or for information about how to provide proof of meeting a prerequisite.
        • CH 301/302 is intended for students in technical areas. CH 301C/CH 302C is an alternative to CH 301/302 for chemistry majors and other honors program students. These are the only two sequences that provide the prerequisites for advanced chemistry courses. Prerequisites for CH 301/302 and CH 301C/302C are listed in the Course Schedule.
        • 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. 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 301N followed by CH 302N is a two-semester sequence designed for nonscience majors. CH 301N is not intended as a preparatory course for CH 301. For students who do not need CH 301 or 302, the 301N/302N sequence (or 301/302N) 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 301N and CH 302N may not be counted toward a degree in the College of Natural Sciences. CH 301N has no prerequisite. The prerequisite for CH 302N is CH 301 or 301N.

        The University of Texas at Austin offers credit by exam for 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 Student Testing Services, for further information on tests for CH 301, 302, 301N, or 302N.

        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, 301C, 302, 302C, 204, 301N, 302N, 320M, 320N, 220C, 317, 328M, 328N, 431, 353, 153K, 354, 154K, 354L, 455, 456, 380L, 381M, 382K, 382L, 386J, 387K, 390K, 390L, 391, 392C, 392E, and 392J.

        The Department of Computer Science offers a variety of courses for students wishing to major in computer science 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 C S 302. Prerequisites for C S 320N vary with the topic and are listed in the Course Schedule; some topics of C S 320N do not have prerequisites. 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.

        Elements of Computing sequence. The goal of the Elements of Computing program is to offer students who are not computer science 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. After taking C S 303E a student may earn a certificate by taking three or more of the following classes of which two must be upper-division: C S 301K, 302, 313E, 320N, 323E, 324E, 326E, 327E, 329E. After taking C S 313E a student may earn a certificate by taking three or more of the following classes of which two must be upper-division: C S 301K, 320N, 323E, 324E, 326E, 327E, 329E. For more information on the Elements program see cs.utexas.edu/academics/non_majors/elements.

        Undergraduates may not enroll in any computer science course more than once if they receive a grade of C- or better. A student may not take the same class more than once for credit. No student may take more than three upper-division computer science courses in a semester without the written consent of an undergraduate adviser in computer science.

        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-four students per section to allow the instructor to interact adequately with each student. Students who fail to attend the first two days of class without making special arrangements with the instructor will be immediately dropped from the class.

        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 adviser.

        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 Student Testing Services for further information.

        The Department of Physics offers the following introductory course sequences.

        • PHY 301/315/316/319 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.      

          Note all introductory physics courses, with the exception of PHY 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. Four evening exams will be scheduled during the semester: Monday evenings for PHY 303K and Thursday evenings for PHY 303L. Students who register for either of these courses should not register for any other Monday or Thursday evening classes to avoid time conflicts. There are mandatory recitation sections with each course. Some sections of PHY 303K and 303L use the non-traditional textbook, Matter and Interactions I: Modern Mechanics and Matter, and Matter and Interactions II: Electric and Magnetic Interactions.
        • 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, 316, 317L.

        Complete prerequisites for undergraduate physics courses are given in chapter 12 of the Undergraduate Catalog; prerequisites for graduate physics courses are given in the Graduate Catalog.

        ESL (English as a Second Language) courses are designed for international graduate students who have a below-passing score on the International Teaching Assistant English Assessment or the J-bar English Assessment. Student performance in ESL courses is graded as credit/no credit, but the courses are not included in grade point average calculations. A student who registers for an ESL course must also register for at least three semester hours of graded college-level coursework at the University. Registration for ESL courses must be approved by English as a Second Language Services.

        All ESL courses are credit courses that are included in determining the student’s course load to satisfy immigration, employment, housing, and financial aid regulations. These courses require the payment of the normal tuition for graduate courses at the University, but they may not be counted toward any degree.
