The HE advisors are happy to help you 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 Spring 2021 course as a result of taking a Spring 2020 course Pass/Fail, please send us an email to headvising@austin.utexas.edu and we will create a pre-requisite waiver on your behalf.
