AET Frequently Asked Questions

How may I major-change into the Bachelor of Science AET degree?

Please see our admissions section for pertinent info.

Some AET courses are listed as ‘restricted.’ How do I register for these courses?

Students hoping to register for a “restricted” AET course need to have the required prerequisites before taking the course. The only way for students without appropriate prerequisites to be approved for coursework is to obtain explicit instructor permission. All AET courses are restricted to AET majors only. Any non-major wishing to enter an AET course needs to provide documentation from the instructor allowing them to enter a course IF seats are available after the first class day of that semester. 

May I have two majors (simultaneous majors)?

Students in the B.S. AET program are not permitted to seek a simultaneous major with other UT degree programs. 

Can I minor in Arts and Entertainment Technologies?

AET does not offer a minor for non-AET students. Students should talk to their academic advisor about options for officially recognized minors offered at The University of Texas. 

I registered for a class, it is after the 12th class day, but now I want to drop it. What do I do?

Go to Student Affairs at the College of Fine Arts (DFA 1.103) to pick up an add/drop form before the mid-semester drop deadline. See the current academic calendar for a schedule of deadlines. After the deadline, you will have to petition the appeals committee.

What is the mandatory advising requirement for AET students?

Current majors in the Department of Arts and Entertainment Technologies must be advised before they can register for any semester or summer session. If you do not attend mandatory advising during the assigned dates, you will not be able to register for classes for the next semester until the week before it begins. The department’s academic advisors will give details about the mandatory advising period during each long semester.
