Linked Courses

What are linked courses?

Linked courses are courses for which you must register concurrently for sections of the same course. This would consist of a combination of a lecture and/or a recitation, and/or a lab section with the same course number.

How do I register for a linked course?

    • Log into your myUT Portal>Student Tab>MyToolkit>Register/Drop/Withdraw Courses
    • First identify the CRN (course reference number) for the course you would like to take. 
    • Lectures will be identified with an L1, Labs with a B1, and Recitations with an R1 in the course title.
    • If you see an L1, R1 or B1 in a course title, that indicates that there is at least one other section of the course, with the same course number, that needs to be taken concurrently.
    • Linked courses are also noted with a "LINKED" indicator in the Status column when searching for courses.
    • NOTE: Some linked courses are identified with higher numbers. For example, L2 lectures may be linked with R2 recitations or B2 labs. L3 lectures may be linked with R3 recitations and B3 labs, etc.
    • Select the "View Linked" button to see all the sections linked with the course section you have chosen.
    • Choose the linked section that will best fit your schedule then select the 'Add All' button to add both the linked lecture, lab and/or recitation to your schedule.  Select 'Submit' in the Summary section to complete your registration.
    • **Please note** If registering by entering the section's CRN you must add and submit together all linked sections in order to add the courses to your schedule.
    • If registration was successful you will see in the Action column, **Web Registered**. In the event you receive a registration error, please contact the appropriate department.

How do I drop/withdrawal from a linked course?

You must perform the same function on all connected courses to process the drop/withdrawal within the myUT portal.

If you need additional assistance, please email the Registrar’s Office.
