The HE advisors are happy to help you before and during registration, but it is important that you’ve taken steps to plan and be ready for each registration period. Please take a moment to review the steps to being prepared and look at the following registration information.

While our physical office is currently closed, our advisors are still available for virtual advising appointments. Please email headvising@austin.utexas.edu for assistance with setting up an appointment. If you are located in another time zone and our normal operating hours (8:30am-noon CST and 1:00pm-4:30pm CST) do not work for you to schedule an appointment, please let us know and we will accomodate you and help get an alternate time set up. 

If you find that you have issues registering for a Summer or Fall 2021 course in a Human Ecology department as a result of using a COVID-19 pass/fail for a Fall 2020 course, please send us an email to headvising@austin.utexas.edu and we will create a pre-requisite waiver on your behalf.

  • Dropping a second session class:
    • If you are only registered for a second session class for the summer and want to drop this, please initiate this immediately by submitting a withdrawal request here. The refund amount is reduced if the class is dropped after the session starts.  This is only in the situation where you are dropping your only summer class. 
    • If you also had first/nine/whole week session class(es) and want to drop a second session class, you have until the fourth day of the second session to drop a class using the online registration system for a refund for those hours.  After the fourth day of session, a Q drop is required for no refund.
