Latest Update October 20, 2013:
NOTE: WGS 390, WGS 391 and WGS 392 are restricted to the WGS MA cohort and WGS Portfolio students. If a course is listed as "restricted" please contact the professor for permission to enroll.
Courses requiring instructor consent or special permission are listed below.
During early registration, courses will be restricted to WGS students only.
Registration occurs October 28th-November 8th. Classes will be restricted during early registration to WGS undergraduate, graduate, and Portfolio students only. A portion of seats in WGS classes will remain reserved for WGS majors and incoming WGS MA students throughout registration and add/drop periods. Restrictions will be reduced/more seats will be released to non-WGS students near the end of early registration and students will be able to add/drop without contacting WGS.
Note to WGS Graduate Portfolios and Undergrad Minors
The online registration system will not know if you are a Minor or Portfolio student. If you are interested in a class, please send an email to Alma Jackie Salcedo. Include your UT EID and the unique number of the class. More information on the WGS Graduate Portfolio Program can be found here. WGS Graduate Portfolio Students may not take undergraduate courses towards their Graduate Portfolio. The WGS 394 Conference Course is available as alternative for enrollment in relevant topic courses.
Consent of the department is required for some undergraduate courses. Depending on seats available, students will be cleared to add the course online. During the last day of early registration, restrictions will be lifted and students will be able to add/drop without contacting WGS (except for courses requiring special consent).
If a class is closed.
Try adding it under a cross-listing or the home department's section (explained here).
Alternately, we recommend visiting the class during the first day. The professor might let in additional students who show intiative and sincere interest.
