To ensure enrollment, please register as soon as possible and no-later than one week prior to the start date of the class (unless otherwise noted) as class space is limited.

Tuition fees are due in full at time of enrollment. Class fees will not be pro-rated for late enrollment.

All tuition will be refunded for classes cancelled by the SSA.

You will be notified if the class for which you are registering is full.

Adult classes are open to students ages 18 and above unless otherwise noted.

UTSA reserves the right to refuse enrollment or dismiss any student for behavior that is disruptive or unacceptable to the learning environment.

Open studio time varies by department and is available to registered students only, and only when no classes are scheduled. Please see your instructor for studio times. Use of the studios for commercial production work is discouraged.

Withdraws, Transfers & Cancellations

A $45 withdrawal fee and a $25 transfer fee will be charged per class for changes made by students. Students must send UTSA notice of withdrawal in writing. This notice must be received no later than 7 days before the first day of class. No refunds will be made for withdrawals made after those times. Notice of withdrawal for SPECIAL CLASSES must be received within 2 weeks prior to the class. Failure to attend classes or verbal notification will not be regarded as an official notice of withdrawal.

UTSA reserves the right to cancel, combine or reschedule classes, or to change class instructors when necessary. Tuition will be refunded 100% for classes cancelled by UTSA. If UTSA cancels a class for any reason, all registered participants will be informed as soon as possible and extended the opportunity to transfer to another class; no transfer fee will be applied.

Service Animals

Service animals are welcome in all buildings on campus and may accompany an individual to any class, meeting or event on or off campus, if the activity pertains to the curriculum.

  • A service animal is defined as "any dog [or miniature horse] that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual or other mental disability."
  • Service animals are not required to wear any distinctive symbols, harnesses or collars. In addition, the law does not dictate the breed or size of dog that may be utilized.
  • Students are not required to register with Student Disability Services or otherwise obtain permission to be accompanied by a service animal on campus or in the classroom.
  • If it is apparent that an animal is a service animal, university staff and faculty should not ask the individual any questions about the animal's status. If it is unclear if the animal is a service animal, university staff or faculty can ask the individual only two questions:
  • Is the animal required because of a disability?
  • What task or service has the service animal been trained to perform?

If the individual answers that the animal is required because of a disability and has been trained to perform at least one task, the animal is a service animal and no other questions may be asked. Individuals should never be asked about their disabilities, nor should they be asked to provide any license, certification or identification card for the service animal.
