Class Selection

Dual Credit students have the ability to take a maximum of 2 courses per semester at the 1000 and 2000 level provided they meet required prerequisites. Students are encouraged to take classes from the core course list. Please note that some majors require specific classes to be taken to satisfy core; email the Dual Credit Coordinator at dualcredit@uta.edu or schedule an appointment for more information. The Dual Credit Coordinator can also assist with course planning if a student has a specific major in mind once they graduate and plan to attend UTA.
