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.

All face-to-face courses will offer a parallel online component for students who are not able to attend in person. The course modalities listed in ASAP reflect how each course is expected to be delivered when classes resume in January.

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.

UTSA provides a variety of resources that can be accessed remotely to support students engaged in online learning. The Tomás Rivera Center offers Academic Success Coaching, with one-on-one virtual coaching sessions and group workshops online as well as tutoring services. The Writing Center offers online tutoring and workshops aimed at strengthening writing skills. UTSA Academic Advising supports students by providing virtual appointments with advisers. Students can find many technology and academic support resources at the new Student Support Gateway.

Students will continue to have access to on-campus services in the spring. On-campus housing will remain open for students who choose to live on campus, and both UTSA Housing and Campus Living Villages are accepting applications from prospective residents.

Dining venues such as the Roadrunner Café and food courts will be open with limited seating capacities for social distancing. The libraries will also be open to serve students with contactless book checkouts.

Work modalities for faculty and staff will continue to include on-campus, telecommuting and hybrid options in the spring. As the situation continues to evolve, work modality options and telecommuting agreements will be reviewed as needed.
