University Extension (UEX) offers UT credit courses on the UT Austin campus in the evenings and online. UEX courses will transfer to almost any college or university, and the credit earned appears on a UT Austin transcript. UT admission is not required.

Current Pre-med Course Options

UEX semester courses follow UT Austin’s academic calendar, beginning three times a year in mid-January, early June and late August/early September. Classroom courses meet after 5 p.m. on the main UT Austin campus. UEX self-paced online courses can be started at any time and taken from anywhere.

Students preparing to apply to a medical school in Texas can fulfill some prerequisite course requirements with the course options listed below.

Before enrolling in a course to satisfy a prerequisite, we encourage students to check with the school where they plan to use the course, as degree programs and requirements vary greatly within and across institutions.
