May Term Programs

4 weeks. UT faculty lead a group of 10-30 students and teach one UT course on our May Term programs. Students receive in-residence credit and can use most forms of financial aid for their course abroad. May Term courses are a part of Spring registration and there is no tuition fee for May Term tuition as long as the student is an undergraduate and maintaining at least 12 credit hours during the Spring semester. These programs are ideal for students who want an immersive experience abroad but who may also have other commitments over the summer semester. May Term faculty leaders are outstanding engineering professors who are dedicated to mentoring students during the program and often become lifelong contacts.
