International Seminar Series
Although relatively few students can study abroad, all can attend classes on campus. The International Seminar Series is an innovative visiting faculty program. Students enroll in a one credit hour weekend course taught by an international faculty member on various topics. Visiting faculty teach in a concentrated format on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for 15 contact hours. Students submit assignments online and complete applied projects two weeks after the class concludes. Participating students earn one credit hour for each international seminar.
In addition to academic seminars, the visiting faculty members also present lectures to UTSA faculty, students and the external business community.

Course Registration And Administrative Info
Sign up on ASAP. The last day to register is the first day the class meets. Students who do not attend the class must drop it officially to avoid a failing grade on their transcript.
Each seminar is worth one hour of elective credit. The cost is tuition and fees for one credit beyond the number of credits you are already taking (e.g. if you are an in-state undergrad taking 12 credits, the cost to increase to 13 credits is about $175). Students may audit the course for $25. (Pick up audit form in BB 4.04.26). No credits are given and nothing will appear on the transcript.
