If you are planning to student teach in Spring 2015, you must attend at least one of the Student Teaching Round-up meetings scheduled between September 15-19, 2014. Students planning to teach "Out of Area" must also attend the meeting on September 19. If you have previously applied for student teaching but did not student teach, you must attend another Round-Up meeting. Students who do not attend a Round-Up meeting will be required to wait until Fall 2015 to student teach.
Academic advisors do not have the ability to place students into closed classes; this is reserved for academic departments. If you are trying to get into a closed class, please contact the department that offers the course to inquire about their procedure for appealing to get into a closed class.
Waitlist Function (available for most Curriculum & Instruction and Health & Human Performance classes):
Prior to the first day of class, you can utilize the waitlist function in the registration system. For instructions on how to use this function, please refer to the following link:
Department of Curriculum & Instruction
If the waitlist function is unavailable, or on the first day of class, fill out the C&I Department Course Override/Appeal Request on the department's website. As space permits, students may be allowed into closed classes.
For Main Campus students that wish to enroll in a Round Rock course, fill out the C&I Department Course Override/Appeal Request. You may be allowed into classes as space permits.
Department of Health & Human Performance Closed Class Form Procedure (for adding courses on the first day of class):
First, you will need to obtain a Jowers Closed Class Form, available here.
If you are considering a complete withdrawal from the University* this semester (dropping all in-progress coursework to remain enrolled in zero hours), please note that the Spring 2014 Withdrawal Deadline is April 17th at 5 pm.
You can verify this deadline as well as other important academic dates online on the Registrar’s Academic Calendar.
*We strongly recommend that any students considering withdrawal first review the “Dropping Courses/Withdrawing from the University” policy outlined on page 32 of the Undergraduate Catalog online.
The Spring 2014 ‘Drop Deadline’ occurred on March 20th, meaning it is too late at this point to drop a single class from your schedule and remain enrolled in at least one credit hour.
Since the Automatic ‘W’ period has passed, students that withdraw from the University at this point will be assigned ‘W’ grades only for courses currently being passed; students not passing will be assigned ‘F’ grades upon their withdrawal.
For more information about how to withdraw from courses, please refer to the information available on the Registrar’s Office webpage about Withdrawing from Classes.
All Block Applications for Summer and Fall 2014 will reopen on April 1st, 2014, at 8:00 a.m.
The Student Organizations web page (located under the 'Current Students' tab) has been added. Here, you will find a list of organizations for Curriculum & Instruction, Health & Human Performance, and general interest for College of Education students.
Please note: The lists on the Student Organizations page are not intended to be a complete directory of campus organizations. For a comprehensive listing and searchable database, please visit the Campus Activities and Student Organizations web page.

The Degree Audit is a helpful resource for students to track their degree progress and remaining degree requirements.

If you love math or science, and if you have (or even if you haven't) thought about teaching, now is the time to do something about it. Our country needs you! Math and science teachers are in short supply and jobs are readily available, especially in grades 4-12.
