TEX and ROSE Registration procedures:
The Course Schedule http://www.utexas.edu/student/registrar/schedules/ provides detailed information on registration procedures, access times, and course offerings. The Course Schedule becomes available at the registrar's office Web site approximately two weeks prior to the beginning of registration each semester. For detailed information, see the fall, spring, or summer Course Schedule online. If you still have questions after reading the Course Schedule, call the registration helpline at (512) 475-7656.
Students may register for classes only during specific access periods detailed in the Course Schedule. You may view your access times on your on-line RIS (Registration Information Sheet): http://utdirect.utexas.edu/registrar/ris.WBX. Access times are also given in the Course Schedule. To register, students may use TEX, the Telephone Enrollment eXchange, by dialing (512) 475-9800 using a touch-tone phone, or ROSE, the Registrar's On-line Services available on the Web at a href="http://www.utexas.edu/student/registrar/rose/.
To use TEX (475-9800), you will need to know your student identification number, personal identification number (PIN), transaction codes, optional fee code selections, and the unique numbers of preferred and alternate course selections. For a ready source of this information, complete the "Registration Worksheet" in the Course Schedule. Each call to TEX is limited to twenty minutes, but you may call back any time during your access period. Transactions completed during any call will not be lost. Keep a pencil and paper handy to write down information that TEX gives you.
To use ROSE, "http://www.utexas.edu/student/registrar/rose/", you will need your UT EID. Once you enter the registration system, you update your registration record immediately each time the submit button is used. Each ROSE registration session is limited to twenty minutes, but you may re-enter ROSE registration any time during your access period and pick up where you left off.
Your registration is not complete unless you pay your tuition and fees by the payment deadline. You may choose to pay in full, or you may use the installment plan (except for summer session).

Seeing the Undergraduate Advisor:
Although not strictly required, continuing majors should check with the undergraduate advisor periodically to share information on courses, discuss difficulties, obtain approvals, and to keep track of career, internship, study abroad, and honors possibilities. Please email or visit the undergraduate advisor to sign up for the geography major email listserv for updates and reminders as well.
The advisor will be available during periods of continuing, new, and late registration, as well as during the semester. Office hours may vary depending on time of year and typically occur between 9:00 and 4:00, excepting the lunch hour from 12:00 to 1:00. To minimize problems, please check in advance (471-5116) to determine the advisor’s availablility. Please try to obtain advising before the peak periods of registration occur. Advance advising is always welcome! You may run your own degree audit online through IDA (Interactive Degree Audit): http://www.utexas.edu/student/registrar/ida/.
Applying to Graduate:
You must apply to graduate during the semester in which you hope to graduate. You may apply to graduate online at the College Liberal Arts website:
http://www.utexas.edu/cola/students/graduation/ or in person in the College of Liberal Arts Dean’s Office in Gebauer 2.200. Please see an advisor before registering for your final semester at UT. You should also have an official degree check with an advisor at the outset of your final semester and always double check your updated advising audit before adds/drops are over during this final semester.
