The University of Texas at El Paso has opened registration for scores of classes that will be available during summer sessions and the fall 2013 semester, and UTEP officials suggest students act fast.
Craig Westman, Ph.D., associate vice provost for student solutions and outcomes, encouraged students to meet with their advisers and register early for the courses they want and need to get ahead or to stay on track to graduate because the classes fill quickly. The University will offer more than 1,200 courses during the summer and in excess of 3,500 in the fall.
The summer session includes the two-week Maymester starting May 20, and the four-week summer I and II sessions that begin June 10 and July 8, respectively. Fall courses begin Aug. 26. The early registration deadline is about four days before the start of classes. To access a complete calendar, visit http://academics.utep.edu/Default.aspx?tabid=68816.
Although intense, the summer class schedules offer students the flexibility to continue their education and have time to work or accomplish other goals, Westman said.
Undergraduate students can review the tuition and fees schedule on UTEP’s Student Business Services website, sbs.utep.edu. Those who live in Texas or are eligible for in-state rates can expect to pay anywhere from $775 for three student credit hours (SCHs) to almost $2,150 for nine SCHs. Those who take 15 SCHs in the fall will pay $3,529. UTEP’s tuition is the lowest among the eight emerging Tier One institutions in Texas.
