Guaranteed Availability

Core courses are available each fall and spring semester. You can find the listing of courses available each semester via the UT Dallas Coursebook. However, elective courses are subject to instructor availability during each semester. In situations where an elective course instructor is unavailable, you will have the option that semester to select a substitute elective that fits your professional and program goals. Your graduate advisor and program director will work with you to find the best course option.

Prerecorded Sessions

Online courses may have prerecorded sessions that you can access from anywhere, anytime — including internationally.


Every course is different, but most courses have timed online exams, and some online courses require that the final exam be taken at a proctored exam center. The proctored exam center selected by a student must be approved by our testing center; there are numerous national and international testing locations. For more information on the availability of proctored exams, please visit the Testing Center website or call 972-883-2460.

Remote testing

Students who find UT Dallas geographically inconvenient may use a testing service of their choice, but it must be approved by the UT Dallas Testing Center.
