Registration – Add/Drop

Fall 2020 Registration 

August 21 – 31 

There are two steps in the registration process:

  1. Determine your appropriate registration, add/drop access period(s) on your Registration Information Sheet
  2. If it is currently your access time, you may register. To register, use the Online Registration System.

To use the registration system, you need your UT EID and password. Once you enter the registration system, you update your registration record immediately each time the submit button is used. Each registration session is limited to 20 minutes, but you may re-enter the system any time during your access period and pick up where you left off.

The University prohibits the use of proprietary computer programs to register or to add and drop classes. If you use vendor software or other automated systems to add, drop, or register, you can be barred from online registration.
