You have the option to take this workshop for college credit (undergraduate or graduate). The advantage is it can be applied toward a degree--now or in the future. Below is a guide to help you proceed, depending on your student status.
CURRENT UT STUDENTS (undergraduate or graduate) If you are pursuing a degree and are already enrolled at UT, just register for the workshop as you would for any other class. However, you must still register here as a student taking the workshop for college credit and pay for your course pack by July 16.
GUEST STUDENT If you are enrolled at another institution, enroll with UT as a Guest Student (undergraduate or graduate) and earn credit for the course in that way. Check with your home institution to verify that it will allow the course to transfer.
UNDERGRADUATE If you are not enrolled at UT, and want to take the workshop for college credit, you will need enroll with an SPU application, a type of enrollment known as "special student status." This helps to simplify your enrollment process when you're taking a class or two, or a workshop, and are not currently pursuing a degree program. The workshop can still be applied to a degree in the future. A $40 application fee is all that is required to get started. No transcripts or test scores are required for the "special student status" application. Financial aid is not available for this student status.
Get An SPU Application This application is not available online but can be filled out in person at the Admissions Office (Rocket Hall, Suite 1300), or one can be faxed or mailed to you upon request. Call 419.530.8888, or email the UT Undergraduate Office of Admissions at email@example.com.
GRADUATE You can obtain graduate level credit for this workshop if you hold an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution. You can earn credit toward a graduate degree program at UT even if you are not enrolled at UT in a graduate degree program. Visit the UT College of Graduate Studies web site and apply for a Graduate Non-Degree Application
DO I STILL NEED TO REGISTER HERE OR JUST THROUGH UT ADMISSIONS? Both! Whether you are applying as an undergraduate, graduate or guest student, we still need to register you here for the workshop. Click the Register Now button on the right and sign up as a student taking the workshop for college credit.
COSTS While the cost of participation in the workshop is waived for students taking the workshop for college credit, you are still responsible for the music course pack/lunch fee of $95. This must be paid by the first day of the workshop. For details on UT enrollment fees and tuition costs, contact the UT Admissions Office (undergraduate level) or the College of Graduate Studies (graduate level).
