Nomination and Application Process for Exchange Students and Free-Movers

Exchange students coming from partner universities must be nominated by their home institution sending an e-mail to [email protected]. Free-movers* (or students from non-partner universities) do not need to be nominated and can apply directly. Upon acceptance, and in order to ensure a place at UTDT, free mover students will have to pay a fee equivalent to the cost of one course. The information on how to make this payment will be sent in the acceptance package.

    Course registration process for undergraduate programs:

    In the application form please include your course selection with up to 6 courses in order of preference. 

    Two weeks before the beginning of the semester course schedules will be published. At that time we will pre-register you in the selected courses. 

    During the orientation you will receive the schedule of the courses you have been registered in and will have ONLY the first two weeks of the semester to make any changes in your course registration.

    Please take into consideration that many universities are closed when the second semester´s add/drop period takes place (early August). Since no exceptions will be made to the add/period, please make sure to come to UTDT with more pre-approved courses than you would need, so that you have options should you have to change your course registration.
