Course Load and Minimum Unit Requirements
A full-time course load at UT is 12 credit hours of undergraduate courses (usually 4 courses).
You determine the credit hours by looking at the course number. The first digit of the course number indicates the credit value of the course in semester hours. Courses numbered 201 through 299 have a value of two semester hours; 301 through 399, a value of three semester hours; and so on. Generally, the last two digits indicate the rank of the course; if they are 01 through 19, the course is of lower-division rank; if 20 through 79, of upper-division rank; and if 80 through 99, of graduate rank.
Accommodation and the Cost of Living
On-campus accommodation at UT is very limited, and priority is given to first-year students. Exchange students primarily live in off-campus dormitories and coops adjacent to UT in a neighbourhood called West Campus. Some exchange students also live in private apartments throughout the city.
Estimated Cost of Living
Estimated cost of living in 2016-2017: USD 8,750 per semester (includes accommodation, meals, insurance, personal expenses, books/supplies)
