Before registration opens, it is best to review your Registration Status, take care of any registration holds, and start planning your schedule.

How to Check Your Holds

Common Registration Holds
Below are some common holds that prevent registration. We encourage you to resolve any registration holds quickly so you can register on time and to secure the schedule you want. You can view all holds in ASAP.
Students who have an admission hold often have it due to missing official transcripts (final high school or college/university transcripts). ASAP will provide more information on the type of outstanding document(s), so you can turn it in as quickly as possible to One Stop.
All first-time undergraduate students (freshman, freshman-transfers, and transfers) must complete orientation before they can register. You can sign up for orientation on ASAP. Once you have completed orientation, the hold will be removed. For more information, visit https://future.utsa.edu/orientation.
Probation or Dismissal Hold
Students who have been academically dismissed and reinstated on probation must speak with an academic advisor. Please reach out to them to take care of your hold so you can register for classes next semester. Find out more information about your hold on ASAP.
In order to stay on track with your degree, you will need to occasionally meet with an academic advisor. If you have an advising hold, you are required to speak with your Academic Advisor.

Graduate School Hold
This hold is typically placed when a Graduate student is missing official documentation. Please log into ASAP to review your hold and confirm what document needs to be submitted. You can send official electronic transcripts and E-Scripts to: email@example.com. Transcripts must come directly from the institution in order to be considered official.
Health Services Hold
There could be various reasons why you have a health services hold. If you are an incoming student, it could be related to the meningitis vaccination.

UTSA offers a schedule planner to help you build the best schedule possible as it considers your needs. You can customize it to include your course preferences and block off time you have set aside for work or extra-curricular activities. We highly recommend using the schedule planner to create a personalized class schedule just for you!
Important Registration Information
- Please be aware that if you register for classes and are subsequently found to be ineligible due to prior academic performance, you will be withdrawn.
- UTSA does not guarantee the availability of courses or sections and admission is permitted only until the maximum number of students has been reached. UTSA reserves the right to cancel any course or section if there aren’t enough students registered to warrant its continuation.
- Undergraduates seeking to register for or to add a graduate course must obtain the special approvals specified in the undergraduate section. Find more information can be found in Student Polices.
- You may not register at both the undergraduate and graduate levels at the same time. If you have been admitted at the graduate level but previously registered as an undergraduate for this semester, you must cancel the undergraduate registration before registering at the higher level. Contact the Graduate School at 210-458-4330 for assistance.
Late registration permits students who have been admitted to UTSA to register for classes during an allotted time just prior to and at the beginning of the semester as indicated in the online registration calendar each semester. Since many courses will have been closed at capacity, late registrants may need to select their courses from a reduced schedule. Students are not permitted to register after the close of the late registration period, except in extenuating circumstances. See the section “Adding Courses After Online Registration is Closed.”
Adding Courses After Online Registration is Closed
If you add a course after the Online Registration period, then you’ll need the approval of both the course instructor and the chair of the department offering the course. A late registration form may be obtained in the Office of the Registrar. After the Census Date, students may not add courses except in extremely rare and extenuating circumstances as approved by the dean of the college offering the course and by the Dean of University College for undergraduate courses.
