Updating your EID, UT email, Transcripts, Vaccinations, Updating Personal Information

  • Final admissions documents:  Visit your Status Check page, which lists the materials that the university needs before new students can enroll in courses. These items are also listed here. Original transcripts are required from all institutions at which a degree was earned; such complete trascripts must reflect that a degree was earned.

  • Vaccinations:  Some vaccines are recommended and it is possible that you might not need to obtain a vaccine in order to begin the Fall semester. A meningococcal vaccine is required, but only for new students under the age of 22 at the time of the start of the school year. If this applies to you, the date on the vaccine record cannot be less than 10 days before the start of classes. See the instructions to submit.

  • Student ID / Upgrade your EID:  Obtain your student ID shortly after arriving on campus. In order to access a variety of university systems, you must upgrade your EID to what is called "high assurance," and obtain your student ID card when you arrive on campus will automatically accomplish this. There is a one-time $10 fee for the ID card that is billed to your What I Owe page, which must be paid by the 4th class day) along with any tuition that you might be responsible for. If you encounter any problems, use the EID self-help tools by selecting the "upgrade my UT EID" link.

  • Email:  Students are responsible for checking their UT email addresses regularly. You will receive communication from not only CDMES but the Registrar, Financial Aid, Human Resources, the Graduate School, and your instructors at this your UT email address. 

  • Personal Information:  At the bottom of your RIS, also see Personal Info, where you can also update your directory information, such as addresses and contact information.

  • Student Profiles:  Create and edit your student profile through this page. You will be authorized for this system early in June 2018, where you will eventually see that you currently have a blank profile on this page. After making changes, click "update database" at the bottom. View other student profiles to gather ideas.
