Registration Information

Clearing your location hold:

  • Go to Howdy to complete the location request located under the scheduling link during either: 
    • the time you are allotted by Texas A&M; or
    • during open enrollment.

Do NOT wait until the last minute to register for classes or:

  • You may not get the class you want.
  • You may end up with a late charge. 

Once your registration is completed

  • Student Business Services will send you information relating to tuition and fees.
  • Check your total tuition and fee amount on Howdy PRIOR to start of class. (The billing link is located to the right-hand side of HOWDY.)
  • If you plan to do installments, you must request it EVERY semester as installments do NOT roll over from one semester to the next.
  • If you fail to pay on time, Texas A&M University will drop you from the course.
    • If you accessed the course, and decide not to continue, you WILL still owe money. (See students rules for refund information.)
  • Need more information on cost? See our cost of attendance section.

Accessing course materials

  • Some professors will NOT have the syllabus posted until the beginning of the semester. Check eCampus.
  • You may contact the professor ahead of time with questions on the course. Locate faculty emails on the petroleum department website faculty page.
  • All course materials are accessible through the course website located within eCampus. 
    • Access to eCampus will be on the first class day, although some professors may not use eCampus and will contact you through your Texas A&M email. 
    • You must use your NetID login and password to access eCampus.
  • You will not gain access to the course website and materials until all holds have been removed.
    • Go to Howdy to view holds. 
  • The course website contains the links to the course syllabus, access to synchronous communication (Chat), and asynchronous communication (Discussion Boards), and so forth.

eCampus

You will NOT have access to your petroleum (PETE) course in eCampus until the professor teaching the course adds the course into eCampus.

Plan ahead:

  • Check with your Chair (Advisor) for suggested courses if the course(s) on your degree plan are not listed.
  • You do not have to follow your degree plan exactly in the order courses are listed.
  • Check with your Chair (Advisor) about substituting courses that work best with your degree plan.
  • You must have your committee formed by the end of your second semester or third course, whichever comes first.

View our degree plan webpage for more information.

Academic Calendar

BOOKMARK the academic calendar.

  • You will find official university dates for registration deadlines, fee payment deadlines, first day of classes, dropping courses, end of the semester relevant dates, and other important information. It is your responsibility to keep up with academic deadlines.
