Academic Advising and Class Registration

All new UT Dallas students are required to meet with an academic advisor in order to register for classes. Students can register for classes after they are admitted to UT Dallas and all holds are removed. Students should meet with an academic advisor and register for classes before attending transfer orientation. Students are encouraged to register for classes as soon as possible.

Summer 2015 class registration begins Monday, April 6th.

Fall 2015 class registration begins on Monday, March 30th.

The following websites will help you set up an academic advising appointment:

Holds on your account may prevent you from registering for classes. New UT Dallas students have a hold to meet with their academic advisor prior to registering for classes for the first time. Additional holds with other departments could also prevent you from registering. For details about remaining holds, check your student account at galaxy.utdallas.edu.
