  • Registration Reminders
    • To audit a class, please refer to this page.
    • Check and clear your record for any Holds. You will not be able to register unless you clear your holds.
    • Research in Biomedical Sciences (GS00 1520), Thesis (GS00 1910) or Dissertation (GS00 1920) carries a default credit value of 9 hours. These courses are of variable credit, i.e. you can register for the course anywhere from 1 to 9 credit hours. If you are signing up for other didactic courses, please adjust the hours of your research, thesis or dissertation course accordingly so you don’t incur additional tuition and fees costs.
    • Students expecting to complete their degree requirements and graduate this term must submit an application for graduation on the MyUTH student portal. A seventy-five dollar non-refundable fee will be assessed at this time.
    • It is important to register every semester. As stated in the GSBS Catalog, any student who fails to register for any semester and who has not been granted an official leave of absence or been approved as a non-registered candidate for a degree will be considered to have withdrawn from GSBS. Once having withdrawn, a student who wishes to continue formal studies must apply and be readmitted to GSBS.
  • Part-time Registration
    • Students on their final semester may request part-time registration only if a petition for defense has been approved and received in the GSBS Office of Academic Affairs by the time of registration.
    • Students on a visa should contact the Office of International Affairs and GSBS regarding any plans to register part time.
    • If you have a scholarship/fellowship or receive financial aid, registering part time may impact your eligibility. Please contact the sponsor of this aid to determine how this change in status will affect your continued support.

  • Employee Registration

For questions regarding the sponsorship authorization form/process, contact gsbs_finance@uth.tmc.edu.  Students who will be paying on their own should make it a point to check myUTH to know what they need to pay in tuition and fees.
