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. 

spring 2021 Late Add Policies for Human ecology courses


Starting Monday, Jan 25th: permission from the department offering the course is required to add a class ("late add").  Late adds are not guaranteed.  The deadline to delete drop a class from your schedule without a Q drop is Wednesday, Feb 3rd by 5pm.

For Human Ecology courses, adds may be allowed with the professor's permission and if space is available (see special note below for NTR 306 instructions).  Late adds are discouraged after Thursday, Jan 28th.  If you have a professor's permission or have questions about next steps, please email headvising@austin.utexas.edu

***For NTR 306***

  • No professor permission required - email headvising@austin.utexas.edu with your NAME, EID, and UNIQUE NUMBER.  We will reply to confirm if you can be added or if the class is full. (53440 should have space; 53540 may get full) 

  • Adds are discouraged after Thursday, Jan 28th however will be allowed through Wednesday, February 3rd before 5pm.  If you email after 4pm on the deadline, it is not guaranteed that your request will be processed - the registration system completely closes at 5pm no exceptions, so please avoid sending your request at the final minute.

  • You are responsible for catching up on any missed material, and adding after Thursday Jan 28th may be difficult.
