Registration and Credit


Students maintain official registration with UT Austin while abroad on university-approved credit-bearing programs. Students in exchange programs and affiliated programs enroll in a "placeholder" course while abroad. Students participating in faculty-led programs enroll in the faculty course. All registration is completed via the UT Austin online registration system.

General Timeline for Registration & Payment

Course registration and tuition bill payment timelines are determined by the Office of the Registrar and Student Accounts Receivable. For full details consult Texas One Stop.
