Graduate Student Resources

Advising

Students are required to meet with the graduate advisor once a semester (October and April) to plan for the following semester's coursework and program of study. If you have additional advising questions, please make an appointment with the graduate advisor.


Registration

Registration for classes happens online during your scheduled access times. Your Registration Information Sheet (RIS) will show you a list of access times for each registration period. You will need to know your UT EID to access registration. 

Incoming students will register during orientation, the week before classes begin. Continuing students will register during the prior semester during set registration periods. Please note that advising needs to take place prior to registering, as all students have a advising bar which will be removed once advising takes place.


Registration Holds

A hold may be placed on your student record for a variety of financial or non-financial reasons. Please remember to check your Registration Information Sheet (RIS) prior to registration to take care of any holds before your assigned registration time.

Add/Drops

Students may add/drop courses via the web during the first four class days. If the course is full or restricted, the student must have department approval to add the course. Consult the professor of the course and cc the graduate coordinator. You may be placed on a waiting list until space opens up or until students who are required to take the course have all registered, usually by the last day of registration.
