STEP 1: PREPARE
Run your BSBME IDA: https://registrar.utexas.edu/studentsdegrees/ida. Make sure your IDA lists 92-99% with in-progress courses. Email Chase (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any corrections that need to be made.
Review MSE Degree Requirements & download MSE Program of Work attached to this page.
Make a plan for which 2 graduate courses you wish to take, being careful to check how they will count in your MSE Program of Work. The Fall Course Schedule is posted two weeks before registration begins. The approved coursework listing shows how graduate courses count toward the MSE program of work. This list is not exhaustive. If you want to take a course that is not listed, email Dr. Andrew Dunn (email@example.com) for permission to take the course.
STEP 2: ADVISING
Email Brittain (firstname.lastname@example.org) & Lacy (email@example.com) your completed program of work, including completed graduate courses and proposed courses for the following semester. Lacy will confirm via email whether the courses you've selected are matched to an appropriate coursework requirement.
STEP 3: REQUEST PERMISSION TO ENROLL + RESERVE THE COURSES FOR GRADUATE CREDIT
This is a two-step process that uses the same forms. First, ESS must approve your request to enroll in a graduate course. Second, you must let the Graduate School know you want to reserve the course for use toward a future graduate degree. You use the same form for both processes. Graduate courses taken while in undergraduate standing will only count toward a future graduate degree if you reserve the courses for future graduate credit. Complete one form for each graduate course in which you enroll:
- Complete the Reservation of Course for Graduate Credit form via ENGR Direct. Under "taking a graduate course for graduate credit," look for the hyperlinked word "application."
- Use UT EID emails when completing the first page (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org). If you need to look up someone's EID, use the UT Directory.
- Faculty Graduate Advisor signer is Lacy White, email@example.com
- Unit Undergraduate Advisor signer is Brittain Sobey, firstname.lastname@example.org
- After entering signer information, you'll need to enter details about the course. Remember, you must complete one form for each course you are taking.
- When you finish your part, the form will route automatically to everyone who needs to sign. Other signers will receive an email when it is their turn.
- When the form is complete, you will receive an email from DocuSign with a link to download your completed and signed form. Download the form and email it to email@example.com by the 12th class day in the semester you are taking the course.
- Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any issues with this form or DocuSign.
STEP 3: REGISTER FOR 2 GRADUATE CLASSES - this section in progress
Once ESS approves your registration for the unique numbers, you should be able to register yourself.
Non-BME Graduate Classes: If we do not have authorization to add you, you can send an email to the Graduate Coordinator (GC) in the department for the class, who can let you know if the department has the course restricted through the first week of classes or whether you need to gain instructor approval to be added to the course. Use the list of all GCs on campus to locate the appropriate person to email. Copy Brittain on these emails.
