By registering, a student enters a college or school of the University and, except in matters of conduct, is under the jurisdiction of the dean of that college or school. The dean has jurisdiction over the student's program of study and degree requirements. Students taking a course in a college or school other than the one in which they are registered are subject, so far as that course is concerned, to the regulations of the college or school in which the course is given. In matters of conduct, all students are under the jurisdiction of the dean of students.
Academic advising and student responsibility. The University provides information and academic advice to students to assist them in making academic decisions. Ultimately, the student is responsible for seeking adequate academic advice, for knowing and meeting degree requirements, and for enrolling in appropriate courses to ensure orderly and timely progress toward the degree. Since academic advising involves more than course selection, see "Academic Advising" in chapter 4 for an expanded description of the services offered.
Registration periods. Freshman and transfer students entering the University for the first time in the fall semester are encouraged to attend a summer orientation session, where they will be given an opportunity to register for classes. Orientation sessions are scheduled three to four days each week beginning in early June and ending in mid-July.
Students entering the University in the fall semester who are not able to attend a summer orientation session and students entering the University in the spring semester or summer session are encouraged to attend the orientation program scheduled just prior to the beginning of classes. Information about registration procedures, University services, and campus life is presented at these sessions. A program designed specifically for graduate students is also included in the fall and spring orientation sessions.
Continuing and readmitted students are given the opportunity each semester to register for the following semester. Registration periods for the fall semester and the summer session usually begin in April, and for the spring semester, in late October or early November.
Specific information about registration is available in the Course Schedule for the appropriate semester.
Paying fees as a part of registration. A student is not registered or entitled to attend classes, participate in class-related activities, or use University facilities and services until registration fees are paid in full or in accordance with an approved installment plan. A student who has an overdue debt to the University will not be allowed to register until the debt is paid.
Late registration. Students are expected to register at their earliest opportunity. A student who registers late is assessed a $25 charge to defray the cost of the extra services necessary to effect the late registration. (Late registration periods are identified in the Course Schedule each semester and summer session.) No student may register for credit later than the fourth class day (second class day in a summer term), except under unusual circumstances and then only with the approval of the registrar and the chairman of the department concerned; graduate and law students must have the approval of their dean.
Texas Academic Skills Program. Undergraduate students who have not fulfilled requirements of the Texas Academic Skills Program (TASP) may be subject to enrollment restrictions or barred from registration.
Concurrent registration at the University and another collegiate institution. Prior written approval of a student's academic dean is required to assure that a course taken at another institution while the student is concurrently registered at the University will count toward the student's degree. A student should not register at more than one institution until the request for concurrent enrollment form has been completed and signed by the registrar. The form is available in the Office of the Registrar, Main Building 1.
Registration of graduate students. Candidates for graduate degrees must register according to the official calendar for the semester or summer session in which they are to receive their degrees.
Students who have been admitted to candidacy for the doctoral degree are required to enroll and pay tuition before the twelfth class day of the fall and spring semesters each academic year until they attain a degree. Under unusual circumstances a student may apply to his or her Graduate Studies Committee for a leave of absence. The application must be approved by the committee and by the vice president and dean of graduate studies.
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. In absentia registration is not permitted for any other purpose.
Undergraduate students. After registering for courses during a semester or summer session, an undergraduate student may change to in absentia status only with the approval of his or her dean. The courses for which the student is registered should be dropped and the in absentia registration added through the normal add/drop procedure. All fees, less the amount of the in absentia fee, are refunded if the change is made during the first twelve class days. After the twelfth class day, no refund is made and no additional charge is assessed for the in absentia registration. No refund is available for the cancellation of an in absentia registration.
Graduate students. For a graduate student, in absentia registration is initiated by a degree evaluator in the Student Division of the Office of Graduate Studies. To be registered in absentia, the student must complete all degree requirements by the in absentia deadline for a semester or summer session (see the calendar).
Transfer from one division to another within the University. Students in any undergraduate college or school of the University of Texas at Austin who are not on scholastic dismissal may transfer to any other college or school within the University only under the general procedures and conditions described below.
Auditing a course. Permission to audit a course entitles the student to attend class but not to hand in papers, take part in discussion, or receive evaluations. An auditor does not receive University credit for the course audited. A law student may not audit a law course.
A University student who wishes to audit a course should obtain a Class Auditor Permit from the Office of the Registrar and secure the consent of the course instructor and his or her dean. A nonstudent must obtain the Class Auditor Permit and the consent of the instructor. An audit fee of $20 a course is assessed nonstudents under the age of sixty-five.
Auditors are permitted only when space is available. An instructor or dean may refuse any request to audit a course. Nothing in these rules prohibits an instructor from permitting guests and visitors in a class.
