Registration Tips:

  • UT Course Schedule
  • UT Office of Graduate Studies
  • Chemistry Graduate Degree Requirements
  • Class Registration for all students takes place online using your UT EID.
  • Zero Fee Bill: If you are a teaching assistant, the zero fee bill does not affect you. If you are appointed as a GRA and your supervising professor is paying your tuition, you must “confirm attendance” after receiving your zero tuition and fee bill. If you don’t, your registration will be dropped and you will have to re-register for a fee. Contact the Graduate Advising Office with questions.
  • In-state Tuition Waiver: Be sure to claim your in-state tuition waiver before completing your registration.  You will receive this waiver if you are employed as a TA or GRA.  Make sure you select the correct semester’s tuition waiver when registering.
