Eligibility & Limitations
All registered UT students who have paid the Student Legal Services fee are eligible for services.
Options during spring registration:
- Do nothing, in which case you will be billed $20 and will be eligible for legal services for spring and summer terms;
- Opt out for summer only, in which case you will be billed $10 and will have legal services only for spring; or
- Opt out for both spring and summer, in which case you will not be billed and will have no access to legal services.
Students who take summer classes:
- If at the time of spring registration, you opted out of Student Legal Services for summer, you will again have the opportunity to purchase the services for $10 during summer registration. If you do not want legal services, you should check the appropriate box to opt out.
- If you already paid $20 in the spring to cover both spring and summer, then you will not be billed again. You are already covered for summer.
Please note that if you are not planning to enroll in summer, your only opportunity to purchase legal services for summer will be at the time of spring registration.
