McKetta Undergraduate Office


Spring 2017 Early Registration Information

NOTE: If you are prioritized for registration in a course based on the chart below, please register for one section of the course, even if it not your first choice. If you are prioritized you may be able to directly enter a course even if it shows as “waitlisted” on the course schedule. Please try to join every section until you are able to join one.


Please do not remain on a waitlist without actually being registered for one of the sections. Your prioritization will carry over to any seats that open up in the closed section you desire, so be sure to manage your swap courses correctly. If your desired section never opens up, you will have a seat in the course(s) you need to graduate.


Priority for registration in ChE courses is summarized below: 

Spring 2017 graduates – CHE 350, CHE 360, CHE 264, CHE 473K
Fall 2017 graduates – CHE 363, CHE 372, CHE 253M
Spring 2018 graduates – CHE 253K, CHE 322, CHE 354, CHE 348, CHE 333T
Fall 2018 graduates – CHE 319
Spring 2019 graduates – CHE 317


NOTE: Graduation dates are determined by the first semester you attended UT plus 4 years. For example, if your first semester at UT was Fall 2014, then your graduation date, based on a 4 year plan to degree completion, is May 2018. If it is not possible for you to graduate on a 4 year plan, then your prioritization will be later.


NOTE: Waitlists

There will not be any waitlists for ChE 264 and ChE 333T during Spring 2017 early registration. All seats will be claimed by Spring 2017 and Spring 2018 graduates, respectively.

Other courses:   Once all prioritized students are accommodated, any remaining seats will be opened up to students on the waitlist(s). Our goal is to open up course waitlists during early registration, but we have to allow prioritized students access to courses before we can do that.


NOTE: 333T can be taken in any department in the Cockrell School. For information about taking 333T in another department check here.


NOTE: Non-major waitlist

If you are not a McKetta Chemical Engineering and are interested in taking a ChE course please fill out this survey. If there is room in your desired course and you meet the prerequisites then you will be added on January 20. 2017.

Updated: October 20, 2016



Course number change
Beginning Fall 2016, ChE 319 will be the new course number replacing ChE 353 – Transport Phenomena. (updated: April 1, 2016)

M 427J
Beginning Fall 2015 M 427J will replace M 427K in the requirements for the BS degree in Chemical Engineering. There is significant overlap in course content in M 427J and M 340L and M 341. Therefore, neither M 340L nor M 341 (exclusion updated April 13, 2016) may be applied to the BS degree in Chemical Engineering if M 427J is taken.(updated: April 13, 2015)

M 427J is unique to UT and therefore cannot be taken at another institution. M 427J must be taken at UT. (updated: April 12, 2016)

Want to take ChE 333T, but not yet prioritized for the course?
You can take 333T in any Cockrell School department. For information about how to get a seat in another department’s 333T course click here. (Updated April 18, 2016)

Business Foundations Courses
Business Foundations Program (BFP), not currently listed on the approved technical option area course lists, or not previously approved by the Undergraduate Faculty Advisor, will not be approved to count toward the BS degree in Chemical Engineering. (effective October 15, 2012)
