Other Important Information for Registration:


  • It is recommended that you claim applicable credit and send in transcripts (if you have pending transfer work) in advance, so that you will be ready for advising. 

  • Please use G4 to prepare and plan for Course Registration Advising so you can provide your academic advisor with an idea of coursework plans.  Link to G4 (v2):
  • Don’t forget the ‘Helpful Links’on the right side of the CAEE web page —get Transfer Equivalency Guides, Course Syllabi, and Course Instructor Surveys
  • Need to drop a class? Now that the 12th class day has passed, you will have to see an advisor in ESS (EER 2.848) to obtain a Q-drop form and initiate the drop process.  Q-drop deadline: October 31st   
  • General information for Cockrell School policies such as Q-dropping, and support services can all be found via the ENGR Direct website.
