Looking to earn college credit from The University of Texas at Austin?

University Extension (UEX) at The University of Texas at Austin offers a wide range of classroom and online courses from the UT Austin course inventory. An important part of our mission is to share the outstanding quality of UT Austin teaching and research with students everywhere.

UEX does not offer degrees, but UEX does offer you an opportunity to take UT Austin courses and certificate programs with UT approved faculty without having to go through the admissions process. UEX courses will transfer to almost all colleges and universities, and the credit earned appears on a UT Austin transcript.

Advising is available year round for students interested in taking advantage of UEX course options. UEX encourages students to consult with both the UEX advisor and an advisor at their home institution before registering.
