Add Self-Paced and Semester-Based Online BFP Courses to Your Summer Plans

University Extension (UEX) offers self-paced and semester-based online sections of most courses in the  Business Foundations Program (BFP) offered by the McCombs School of Business. Whether you're already enrolled in the program and want to get ahead on your course requirements, or you're looking to add business skills to another major, BFP online courses are ideal for students seeking flexibility in their schedule, especially those seeking to complete a class during summer break or between semesters.

Courses taken through UEX count for college credit and will appear on your UT Austin transcript. The grades will be included in your cumulative UT GPA, too.

Make the most of your summer

UEX's self-paced online courses can be started at any time and taken from anywhere you have an internet connection, and you have up to five months to complete the coursework. That means you can register for a course now, start the coursework before you leave for the summer and finish it from home or wait until summer and focus your energy during your downtime. While UEX semester-based summer courses are available online and must be taken during the summer semester schedule. Exams can be taken online or in person at an approved testing center, which will most often be at a nearby college or university campus.

Convenient and cost effective

Taking self-paced or semester-based online courses thru UEX is not just convenient, it can also be a cost-effective option for earning credit over the summer. The registration cost of each class is $850, plus materials.
