May 16, 2020 Update
Students reminded to turn in grade change form by May 19
Undergraduate students should remember that they must submit the Grade Appeal Form for the pass/fail option by May 19. The pass/fail option is GPA neutral, and neither "pass" nor "fail" will affect the GPA.
Apply now for CARES Grant
UT Tyler students are encouraged to apply for the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act grant, which is specifically for expenses incurred as a result of disruption to the education process created by the COVID-19 pandemic such as food, housing, course materials, technology, healthcare and child care.
Limited funds are available, so students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
Funds will be awarded until UT Tyler's allocation of the CARES grant has been exhausted.
To determine eligibility and to apply, visit uttyler.edu/cares.
