Admission and Registration

Admission

Admission to the University

Admission and readmission of undergraduate students to the University is the responsibility of the director of admissions. Information about admission to the University is given in General Information. Admission to a major may be restricted by the availability of instructional resources.

Admission Policies of the College

Students admitted to the University with deficiencies in high school units must remove them by the means prescribed in General Information. Course credit used to remove deficiencies may not be counted toward the student’s degree.

A few students who already have a bachelor’s degree and who are not candidates for an advanced degree are admitted to the college each year as nondegree seeking students. Such students are admitted only with the approval of the appropriate academic unit head and the dean.

Registration

General Information gives information about registration, adding and dropping courses, transfer from one division of the University to another, and auditing a course. The Course Schedule, published before registration each semester and summer session, includes registration instructions, advising locations, and the times, places, and instructors of classes. The Course Schedule and General Information are published on the registrar’s website, http://registrar.utexas.edu/.

Enrollment in upper-division courses in the Moody College of Communication may be restricted because of limitations on instructional resources.
