The consent form does not guarantee successful registration of course to be added.  If seats are filled by current majors in the dept, and/or the professor does not give consent, the course cannot be added.  Even if the professor gives consent, but all seats in the course are filled by majors, the course cannot be added.

Open Signature Course Seats

We are happy to announce that due to the way we were able to better manage seats throughout Orientation, we still have several seats available in Signature Courses. Any student who is in their first year in residence(both Freshman and first-year Transfer students) is able to register themselves for any open section and do not need to call our office.

Even better news, due to the availability of seats we will be able to put any upperlcassmen in any open, unrestricted UGS 303 section at this time. So, if you know you have some upplerclassmen looking to graduate in May and they still need a Signature Course now is the time to have them register. Please have upperclassmen call our office at 512-471-4421 and we will be happy to add them.

Student Conduct Board Recruitment 2015-2016

We are actively recruiting student members for the Student Conduct Board for the 2015-2016 academic year.

The Student Conduct Board offers the opportunity for students to be actively involved in promoting academic integrity and the student Honor Code on our campus. Students will share with faculty the responsibility of changing our culture to one where academic integrity is not merely an aspiration but an embedded reality of what it means to be a Longhorn. Since Fall 2013, students charged with academic violations have the option of having their cases heard by the Student Conduct Board, a panel of students, faculty and staff who are responsible for making decisions on academic related judicial cases.

Students with a strong commitment to upholding the highest standards of academic integrity on our campus are encouraged to get involved. This prestigious opportunity is open to undergraduate and graduate students and the application deadline is September 10, 2015.  Successful candidates will be appointed by President Fenves to the Student Conduct Board.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Student Judicial Services at sjs@austin.utexas.edu or 512-471-2841.

Sanger Ice Cream Social

I just wanted to invite students to the Sanger Learning Center annual ice cream social!

We will not have the planners this year. However, we are excited to offer something new this year!

Our professional staff of Learning Specialists will be on hand giving one on one individualized academic resource “reports” to students as they come by to eat ice cream.  This is basically a sheet that shows what academic resources are available to them for each of their classes in the semester. Students do not have to do these quick meets, they can just grab ice cream and go, or pass on the ice cream and just benefit from the individualized resources report.
