This fee is intended to cover all associated university fees such as technology, library, or application fees. As with all courses, you are responsible for the cost of your books and educational materials.

Registration Deadlines

In most cases, this will not coincide with UT Tyler's calendar so advanced planning financially and academically is critical. Visit NEXus for a complete list of registration deadlines.

Academic Considerations

  • Students are encouraged to contact the course faculty in advance to ensure that they understand the course requirements (for example, prerequisite courses, vacation periods, on-campus requirements, technology requirements, synchronous versus asynchronous discussions).
