Summer session courses are offered at the undergraduate and graduate levels in a variety of formats to help students accelerate degree completion or to explore elective areas of study.
The Summer 2015 schedule of courses is available to be viewed, and registration will open on Feb. 23, 2015. Once registration opens, it is generally open through the first day of the respective summer term.
Go to the "Live Course Search" on SpartanWeb and enter any of the summer terms in the "term" field (look for May Term or any term starting with "Summer") to find courses that are offered. You are not required to log on to SpartanWeb to search for courses. You can also view a list of all summer courses, which is sorted by discipline. If you don't see the course you want or have a suggestion for a summer course, email email@example.com.
You do not have to get your adviser to clear you for any summer courses if you are a continuing UT student; however, it is suggested students consult with their adviser before registering in a course to ensure it fits in their program of study. New students should see below for admission requirements.
Summer 2015 tuition and fees will be posted on or before April 1, 2015. Check with the Financial Aid Office as soon as possible if you plan to seek financial assistance for your summer courses.
Hybrid classes combine in-classroom and online instructional experiences. To search for hybrid classes, select HY in the "Method" window on SpartanWeb "Live Course Search." Hybrid classes meet in the classroom for about half as many hours as traditional full face-to-face classes with the other half conducted via Blackboard online.
Introducing compact residency hybrid courses
These specially formatted hybrid courses meet on campus during the first two weeks of the term only. The remainder of the class is conducted online. For example, a student enrolled in a MayTerm course could take an additional course in Summer I by staying for just two extra weeks of on-campus instruction, and then complete the course online from anywhere in the world. Look for these compact residency hybrid classes in Summer I on SpartanWeb. Meeting days during the first two weeks of the term can be found in the course "notes" section.

Students are encouraged to go on the wait list in those instances when a desired course is full. Wait lists are monitored daily, and students who meet all course requirements are automatically registered in the course if a seat opens up. The student on the wait list with the highest number of completed credit hours will be the first to receive the next available seat.
