Applications may be downloaded from links within the UT TeleCampus website. Students may use e-mail, fax, and phone to facilitate the process in most cases. At no time will it be necessary to physically visit the campus. The UT TeleCampus does not confer the degree - students will apply to and graduate from UT campuses. There are nine academic and five medical research facilities in the UT System. Different campuses partner on various programs, and all offer their courses centrally through the UT TeleCampus website. See the site for more information: www.telecampus.utsystem.edu

Tuition Costs:
The amount of tuition and fees charged by each UT System campus varies and is based on residency status. Students should access the UT TeleCampus website for links to campus tuition and fee information. Generally the same financial aid that would be available as an on campus learner is available to qualified students learning online. Financial aid and veteran's affairs contact information can be found in the UTTC website.

Courses may also utilize additional distance education tools, including CDs, audiotapes and videotapes. Courses will be interactive with student-to-faculty, student-to-student and student to content interaction. Courses run on a semesterly basis but provide flexibility within the week for students to choose when to study. Courses may include group projects, portfolio projects or research projects. Extensive student support services are offered online including free 24/7 technical support, academic support and tutoring and extensive digital library services.

Relevant Info on faculty:
