2014 Registration Slotting Process
Starting with spring 2014, the University is making an improvement to registration so that your time slot for registering for classes will be assigned based upon your progress toward degree completion. In other words, it will be easier for you to register for classes that you need as you get closer to completing your degree so that you can graduate on time.
The BBA academic advising team has put together this list of frequently asked questions that will help you navigate the process. If you have any questions please call the BBA Program Office at 512-471-0690 or stop by CBA 2.400.
2014 Course Registration Process FAQs
- How will I be assigned my registration time slot this spring?
Starting with spring 2014, your time slot for registration will be assigned based upon your progress toward degree completion. The closer you are to completing your degree, the earlier you will register.
- What do I need to do NOW to make sure that I am assigned the correct access period?
Your registration access depends on your progress toward degree completion and that’s why it’s important that your profile is updated and correct. To ensure that your profile is correct and you are assigned the appropriate registration time, please do the following by Thursday, February 27 at 5 PM:
Run an Interactive Degree Audit. Once you login with your UT EID, just hit SUBMIT and a degree audit based on your official catalog will be run. You will use this audit to identify any issues. To change your catalog, go to https://utdirect.utexas.edu/business/students/. If you have more than one profile because you are pursuing more than one degree, you must enter your college, major, and catalog.
- If you notice any problems with your degree audit (ex: you submitted a petition to count a course toward a requirement and it is not being applied to that requirement), send an email to BBATemporaryAdvisor@mccombs.utexas.edu.
- Credit earned at other institutions that does not appear in your degree audit should be transferred to UT. Contact the registrar’s office at the other school to request that a transcript be sent to UT. This credit must be on your UT record by February 28 to be included in the registration slotting.
- When should I see my advisor?
As soon as possible! Registration for summer/fall 2014 begins on April 14, so don’t wait to schedule an appointment with your advisor! Call the BBA Program Office at 512-471-0690 or stop by CBA 2.400.
- What are the University's reasons to change the way registration access is assigned?
This improvement is one of the changes that the University is making to help you make steady progress toward and complete your degree on time. The new system will to make it easier for you to register for classes that you need as you get closer to completing your degree.
- When will course schedules be available?
The Registrar anticipates the course schedules for summer 2014 will be published on March 25 and for fall 2014 on April 1 at http://registrar.utexas.edu/schedules,
- I have a double major. Which major will the University use to assign my access period?
The University will use the degree profile which shows the greatest progress toward completion to assign the registration time.
- When will my registration period be available?
Registration time slots will become known at the same time, and can be found on each student’s personal Registration Information Sheet (RIS). Students should log on to view their RIS and find out when they will be able to register at the end of March/beginning of April. More information is available at http://registrar.utexas.edu/students/registration/before/ris.
- If I drop a class, what will happen?
The University will use special degree audits which are run beginning of March 3 to assign registration access periods. Any changes to your record after that date will not show up in the degree audit that the University will use for registration slotting.
- My friend has the same major and we have made the same progress toward degree completion but my friend's access period is earlier than mine. What are the reasons for that?
There are only a limited number of registration slots available for a certain time to make sure that the computer system works efficiently. This was also true under the old registration process which was based on classification and first letter of the last name. As a result, students with identical classification and different first letter of their last names had to register at different times in the past. The same applies to the new registration access process: the large group of students with the same progress toward degree will register at different times.
- I am considering changing my major or transferring to a different college or school. What are the effects on my registration access period?
You should go see your advisor to discuss your plans. Although it is probably too late to change to a different college/school and get a new major declared in that new college/school, students changing majors within McCombs can easily go on-line to complete this change. If you are changing to a different McCombs major, you must make the change before March 3rd. https://utdirect.utexas.edu/business/students/index.WBX
- Will my current enrollment in a University Extension course or at another institution show up on my degree audit?
Since these courses are not on your academic record, they will not be considered in the degree audit that will determine your access period.
- I am a senior, does this new process apply to me too?
This new process was designed to support seniors like you - with steady progress to degree completion - to get the classes they need for their degree plan to be able to graduate.
