The about 700 students in the College of Adult and Lifelong Learning’s individualized studies degree programs and the about 1,700 students in YouCollege’s Department of Exploratory Studies will be enrolled in the new University College.

University College also will oversee the University’s more than 500 online courses, as well as provide UT’s military, testing and workforce development services.
