Student Responsibilities

As noted in the Cockrell School of Engineering Handbook, each student must be informed about all pertinent rules and regulations and must abide by them at all times. Academic advisors are available to assist students, but the ultimate responsibility for being informed rests with the student. Please review the policies and procedures that apply to undergraduate students.


The Cockrell School of Engineering provides various opportunities for students to receive academic support via personalized tutoring and academic community centers. The school offers tutoring by department, drop-in tutoring via Engineering Study Tables in the new Engineering Education and Research Center (EER) and scheduled appointments through Engineering Student Services. For more information on tutoring times and locations, visit ENGR Direct Students. To schedule a tutoring appointment, visit the Online Appointment Book.

Engineering Student Services

  • Students who need assistance with processing a Q-Drop, withdrawing, transferring within or outside of Cockrell can get assistance here.
  • Students who are interested in taking graduate level courses as an undergrad are required to complete this application for each class that they would like to take.
  • Students who are interested in enrolling in more than 17 hours for a Fall/Spring semester are required to apply here.
  • Students who need to take a course for a 3rd or more time, must request permission with a written appeal that can be found here.

Transcript Requests

  • All requests for transcripts should be done electronically via Texas One Stop. There is a $20 fee per copy that you request. 
  • Official transcripts are required when planning to take summer courses at another college. Transcripts cannot be hand delivered to colleges to ensure records are not altered.

Study Abroad

  • If you are interested in studying abroad for a short-term program (maymester) or semester-exchange program (fall and/or spring terms) can find more information through the International Engineering Education Office (IEE).
  • IEE has advisors for students to meet with and discuss their options in more detail.
  • It is recommended that your semester abroad aligns with the courses you were planning to take at UT to ensure that your time abroad does not delay your graduation. 


We are here to listen to your concerns in a safe setting about life at the university and confidentially discuss interpersonal difficulties, university policies, university bureaucracy, and conflict resolution techniques. We help you identify options so you can seek resolution. We encourage you to explore our website and make an appointment to meet with one of our staff members. You can contact the Ombuds Offices here.
