Spring 2021 Registration
The Spring 2021 timetable is now live and registration begins the week of November 2. Log into MyUTK to confirm your registration window.
Classes are face-to-face, hybrid (a combination of face-to-face and online), and online. To find the course format, check the attributes on a course listing. The attribute for hybrid courses is listed as ” face-to-face & online – hybrid.”
Because COVID-19 is an evolving situation, changes to the course schedule may be necessary for safety. After you register, monitor your class schedule periodically for any possible changes.
Register for classes based on your classification. Check your registration date and time using View Registration Status in MyUTK.
Prerequisite—A course you are required to complete as a condition for enrolling in a class where current familiarity with the subject is essential. For example, you must successfully complete Accounting 301 (prerequisite) before enrolling in Accounting 321.
Corequisite—This course must be taken simultaneously (or prior to) another course so you are prepared to succeed in the other course. For example, you must take Business Administration 341 at the same time or before taking Business Administration 342.
If you failed a course that is a prerequisite to another, you will not be allowed to register for the next class until completing the requirements. Anytime you do not have the proper prerequisites or corequisites for a course you registered to take, it may be involuntarily dropped from your schedule after all opportunities to add another course have passed.
The mini-term allows you to attend one concentrated credit course. The courses and instructors reflect a broad base of offerings for an intensive study program. Courses cover information included in regular offerings, but many are supplemented with films, team teaching, field trips, independent research projects, and specialized study. You must be admitted for summer semester before registering for a mini-term. The courses follow the same standards as those in a regular semester. Mini-term grades are included in the calculation of the summer term grade point average. You must have permission from the dean of the respective college to enroll in more than one course during a mini-term since one day is equivalent to one week. Mini-terms are not eligible for financial aid.
