Class Schedules

Class schedules are located on Raiderlink under the "Look up Classes" or "Section Search Tool" links. These can be found under the Registration heading of the TTU MyTech Tab. You may also choose to use the "Plan Ahead" feature which allows you to plan, via Raiderlink, for an upcoming registration and use that plan when you become eligible to register. Use the help guides found in Current Student Resources (link) for step by step instructions.

Any late changes in course offerings (added or deleted, etc.) will be communicated by email and updated on Raiderlink. NOTE: Class information is subject to change up to 2 weeks before the start of the term.

Registration and Waitlists

In order to register, sign onto Raiderlink and click on the "TTU MyTech" tab. All of the registration related information is on the top left-hand side of the screen under the heading "Registration." This is also where you can view your student schedule, grades, degree audit, and unofficial transcript. If a class that you would like to take is full, several of our courses offer a waitlist option which allows you to electronically wait in line for an available seat via the waitlist feature.
Please note:
• Waitlisting is based on a first-come, first served basis and does not guarantee a seat in the class.
• Waitlisting is valid up to the last day to add a course, after that date the waitlist request will be removed from the student's record.
• Whenever an opening occurs, an e-mail is automatically sent to the first person on the waitlist at their official TTU email address. The student has exactly 24 hours, including weekends, to register for the class on the "Add or Drop Classes" link or they will be dropped from the waitlist.

Upper Level Writing Requirement (Advanced Research and Writing)

To graduate, a J.D. student must earn an average of "C" or better on the writing assignments of at least one course that satisfies the upper level writing requirement ("ULWR"). A faculty member teaching such a course has discretion to impose a higher minimum grade for satisfying the ULWR. You may view which courses could satisfy this requirement by looking at the section detail in Raiderlink. Use the help guide found on Current Student Resources (link) for step by step instructions. For ease, a list of these courses has been compiled below.
