Roadrunners look ahead to spring semester as registration approaches

OCTOBER 12, 2020 — UTSA will open registration for the spring 2021 semester starting on October 19. As mentioned in President Taylor Eighmy’s September 8 email to students, faculty and staff, modalities for the university’s spring courses and campus operations will be very similar to this fall—mostly online, with a limited number of courses meeting face-to-face based on strict criteria.

Students will once again register for classes based on their priority group or classification within a designated registration period with specific start and end dates.
