Take some time to check out the following university resources and services; they can help smooth your transition to life as a Longhorn.
Majors, Degree Plans and Courses
Looking for information about degrees, majors, program options, course schedules and related issues? The Office of the Registrar has you covered:
The Undergraduate Catalog offers information on undergraduate degrees, degree requirements, majors, program options, preparation for law and health professional studies, and courses.
The Course Schedule contains information you will need to register for classes—including instructions, academic advising requirements and locations, building and course abbreviations, course offerings for the semester and other general information.
The General Information catalog is intended to be used in conjunction with the Undergraduate Catalog. It contains a variety of useful information about the university, including freshman admission standards, general academic policy, tuition and required fee schedules, student affairs and services, and information about libraries and other academic facilities.
Campus safety is everyone’s business. Read about Safety and Security on the Forty Acres—everything from crime statistics to emergency preparedness procedures to contact information for the university’s Counseling and Mental Health Center Crisis Line.
