Process for Registration/Advising for Current Dean's Scholars
Registration for Spring 2011 semester begins October 25th and goes through November 5th. Well in advance of your registration time, you should do the following:
At this appointment/group advising session, you will get a) your personal degree plan that shows what degree requirements you have completed and which you still need to take, and b) a tan DS Faculty Advising Form upon which you will fill in the classes you plan to take in the upcoming semester.
Your faculty advisor will talk with you about classes in your major, research, plans for graduate/professional school, etc. and they will sign your Faculty Advising Form approving the courses you plan to take in the upcoming semester. Bring both the Faculty Advising Form and your Degree Plan with you to the meeting. [Who is my faculty advisor?]
Return it to the front desk of PAI 3.04 for Mark and your advising bar will be removed. This is an important step as you will not be able to register until your bar is removed!
4. Check your registration time/day on UT Direct.
(e.g. an unpaid parking ticket, or an overdue library book) that will prevent you from registering.
If you have trouble getting into a College of Natural Sciences course, contact Mark: we will likely be able to help you. There isn't much we can do for classes in other colleges unfortunately.
As always, please feel free to email or call Mark if you have questions about the process.

If you are currently working with a faculty member on your thesis research, they can discuss these topics with you and sign your Faculty Advising Form.
If you are not yet working with a faculty member on research, or just don't feel comfortable having your thesis advisor sign off on your classes, you should meet with the DS Steering Committee Representative(s) for your major, they are listed below:
