This is the reference page for course information you need to know as an online graduate student. If you do not see the information you need listed below, please contact our staff.
Graduate courses are listed in the graduate catalog. Some courses require taking another course first, so you can understand the material better. These prerequisites are listed in the catalog and are subject to change. Always confirm prerequisites with the professor of the course or the course syllabus.
Course availability depends on the semester. Once you are admitted to our program, go to howdy.tamu.edu. Look under MY RECORD, REGISTRATION, and click on SEARCH CLASS SCHEDULE
NOTE: Section 700 is for Distance Learning students only and Section 600 is for campus students only.
If courses on your degree plan are not being taught during a particular semester, it is okay to change courses as long as you:
- ask your graduate adviser for suggestions
- work with your advisor on a petition for course changes in your degree plan
Changes to your degree plan are done online during your final semester through the document system on the Office of Graduate and Professional Studies website.
