Get ahead (or catch up) with flexible online college core courses.
University Extension (UEX) online courses can help you complete your college core curriculum course requirements at a time that fits your schedule. Courses offered by UEX provide college credit, are transferable and appear on an official UT Austin transcript. Admission is not required, but some courses have prerequisites.
Semester-based Online Courses
Each semester UEX offers a selection of online courses for students looking for flexibility and structure that includes interaction with classmates. Students complete reading assignments, watch lectures and complete online activities on their own schedules, with due dates and deadlines established within each learning module.
UEX's semester-based online courses follow the university's semester calendar, beginning three times a year, in mid-January, early June and late August. Browse all semester courses.
Self-paced Online Courses
UEX self-paced online courses are perfect for motivated and self-directed students looking to optimize flexibility without sacrificing faculty guidance. Self-paced online courses can be started at any time and taken from anywhere you have an internet connection. You have up to five months to complete the coursework, and you can purchase additional time, if necessary.
Before enrolling in a course to satisfy a prerequisite, we encourage students to check with the school where they plan to use the course, as degree programs and requirements vary greatly within and across institutions.
