In an effort to separate our course inventory from Tarleton State University, students will notice a change in the Fall 2012 TAMUCT course prefixes. Course content and information are not changing, ONLY the course prefixes. Each TAMUCT course prefix will end in a "K" (ex: ACCK-Accounting, ECOK-Economics, etc.) This change is necessary as we make the important transition toward our independence from Tarleton State University and separate accreditation. "K" courses go into effect for Fall 2012, so the Summer 2012 courses will look the same as they currently appear in the published schedules and catalog.
Registration is now active for the Summer 2012 and Fall 2012 semesters. Summer Registration ends on June 5th Fall Registration ends on August 26th.
