Academic Credit for Self-paced Online College Classes

University Extension self-paced online credit courses are full academic credit courses and appear on a student’s UT Austin transcript.

Most self-paced online courses are offered for three credit hours, but some language courses are offered for five credit hours.

University Extension credit is generally accepted as transfer credit toward undergraduate degrees at other institutions, but acceptance of transfer credits is always determined by the institution to which a student is applying. UT students should consult with their advisor. If you are pursuing a degree elsewhere, please consult with your advisors at that university to determine course applicability to your degree.

Any students who wish to use course credits toward graduation should be sure to check with their advisor about graduation related deadlines.
