Learn more about the different types of courses we offer:

Evening Classes On Campus

If attending classes on campus is an option for you, UEX's evening classroom courses may be a good fit for your busy schedule. These courses offer a traditional classroom experience and follow the university's semester calendar. They meet on the main UT Austin campus—often after 5 p.m.—just one or two nights a week.

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.

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.

Midterm and final exams have to be taken in person at an approved testing center, which will most often be at a nearby college or university campus.

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.
