Please be aware of restrictions that come with in absentia registration. Students registered in absentia are not technically enrolled and thus don’t have all the benefits of an enrolled student. Here are some of the relevant restrictions for students registered in absentia:
1. Student IDs should still be active during the summer of 2020, but there may be an impact building access should campus reopen; please contact your department for information on building access limitations.
2. They will not be eligible for fellowships, AI, TA, or GRA employment. (These positions require enrollment and most come with tuition.)
3. You should have access to UT libraries facilities and resources that require a UT ID.
4. International students will have to apply for OPT in the last semester they are enrolled (i.e. spring 2020, not summer 2020).
However, students registered in absentia may enroll in the AcademicBlue health insurance plan during summer 2020.
