Graduate International Student Admissions

Concurrent Enrollment


Students can maintain F-1 status by completing courses concurrently at another institution while remaining on a UT Tyler Form I-20 if they meet all the requirements listed on the Concurrent Enrollment Form.

Application Process

  1. Identify possible concurrent courses.
    • At least half of the F-1 required hours must be taken at UT Tyler.  This means graduate students must take at least 5 hours at UT Tyler.
    • Only one online course can apply to those required hours.
  2. Verify with your UT Tyler academic advisor that the courses meet your degree requirements.
  3. Submit a Concurrent Enrollment Form to Graduate Admissions before the Census Date of each semester in which you are concurrently enrolled. Receive approval from the graduate international student advisor with a signature on the form.
  4. Enroll and complete the approved concurrent courses.
  5. Provide documentation to Graduate Admissions that you completed the approved concurrent courses to meet F-1 enrollment requirements. The most convenient source for most students in an online grade report.
  6. Arrange for the transfer of credit to UT Tyler by completing the Graduate Transfer Credit Approval Form.

Consult other campus offices to determine if reducing your hours at UT Tyler will affect other areas, including scholarships, TA/RA positions and campus housing.
