Transfer-Student Signature Courses

As a transfer student, you arrive on campus with college experience, but The University of Texas at Austin may be unfamiliar to you. To help you connect with transfer peers and acclimate to the level of academic rigor at UT Austin, we offer Signature Courses tailored to the transfer student experience.

Are you a current UT Austin transfer student who needs to fulfill your Signature Course requirement? You’ll be able to reserve a seat in a Transfer-Student Signature Course prior to registration. The seat reservation system will go live by Friday, Oct. 14.

Are you a new transfer student starting at UT Austin in spring 2023? You will be able to register for any Transfer-Student Signature Course section listed as “Open; Reserved” during your registration period at orientation.
