UT campus classes — These classes are held on campus in classrooms with full-time college students at the published scheduled times. University faculty members are primary instructors. Students are required to travel to and from UT and follow the UT semester schedule.

High school campus classes — The students' classes are held during the high school's scheduled class times with their classmates. Credentialed high school teachers approved by the UT Provost are primary instructors and assigned a University mentor with whom they collaborate. These classes mirror UT classes in all respects. Students follow the high school schedule.
