Flexibility for classes and scheduling at UAT is top-notch. Don't want to take a class on a certain day? It's up to the student if he or she wants to or not. Students can make their own schedules, but they must keep in mind that only certain classes are offered at certain points in the semester. Because the school counts internships as credits, students can take a big course load credit-wise and not be too overwhelmed by it. Students are consistently updated about new classes and new courses coming out, and they are informed if a class is changed or altered.

Most students are full-time students and have jobs and internships on the side along with personal projects. It is safe to say students at UAT keep pretty busy. Students this busy need flexibility, and the school answers this problem by providing flexible schedules, days, and multiple classes. Most struggles students encounter from time to time include certain classes being changed from one semester to another, and students will often have to wait for certain availability of classes for another semester. Class availability is major-specific, but most students find the classes they need in the time they need it without too much hassle. Different classes will change, and students will have classes canceled sometimes, due to a low amount of registration or the school has some changes to the curriculum.
