Undergraduate courses

When selecting courses, please take into consideration that:
As an exchange student, you can register in regular undergraduate courses or in the courses offered by the Department of International Programs.
  1. UTDT´s first semester runs from March through July and the second semester from August through December. The academic semester has 16 weeks of classes plus 3 weeks of final exams.
  2. Unless otherwise stated, courses are taught in Spanish.
  3. International students can take courses from different majors and years.
  4. A full-time course load is 3 courses per semester. Exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis. 
  5. Class attendance is mandatory; students must attend at least 80% of the classes in each course.
  6. To avoid overlapping schedules, it is best to select courses from the same major and year (i.e. Architecture, 4th year). 
  7. UTDT´s undergraduate programs are 4 or 5 years in length. European Masters students can choose 4th and 5th year Di Tella courses to meet their home University requirements.
  8. Most upper-level courses have prerequisites, which must be met in order to be able to enroll.  
  9. Every effort to accommodate your request for enrollment will be made, but some courses fill quickly and full courses are not overridden. Therefore, several preferences should be submitted to ensure that your needs will be met. Placement is only guaranteed in courses offered by the International Programs Department.
  10. Most courses have two evaluations: a mid-term and a final. Each professor decides the type of evaluation for his/her course (i.e. individual papers, written exams, group projects). Satisfactory passing is a requirement for a course approval. Most courses do not have make up exams. Thus, missing an exam implies failing the course. Exam dates are announced approximately 3 weeks before each exam period and are unmovable. (Please see the Academic Calendar for exam periods).

Course registration process

In the Application Form please complete the course selection with up to 6 courses in order of preference. We will pre-register you in them and you will try them in the Add and Drop Period. Since course times are published approximately 2 weeks before the semester begins, we will confirm your registration during the Orientation Program. You will only be able to add or drop courses during the first 2 weeks of classes. After this period all courses will appear on your transcript.
