Courses and Registration

UT Online Consortium

UT ONLINE CONSORTIUM

The University of Texas TeleCampus has become the University of Texas System Online Consortium (UTOC). The UTOC will provide a web presence to identify online courses open for registration by students enrolled at any UT institution; promote collaborative online degree programs offered by University of Texas institutions, as well as support students in the registration process for these courses and degree programs. Further information about the UT Online Consortium is available on their website at www.utcoursesonline.org.

The UT Online Consortium (UTOC) manages and supports the Texas Information System (TIS) application which, allows UT Arlington students to take Internet-delivered courses from other University of Texas component schools for UT Arlington credit. To enroll in an online course offered through this consortium, the student must complete an online Registration Request using the Texas Information System (TIS). More information about registration and the TIS can be found on the UTOC website Registration and Enrollment Page.
