Having trouble getting into classes you want/need?
- Keep in mind that if you are trying to get signed into a class that is full, the only person who can do that is the instructor of the class. You can download a drop/add form here (under Drop/Add form). Once that form is filled out, you can drop it off in the registrar’s office in the Mossman building. Make sure the form is completely filled out and bring your student ID. The website for the Registrar’s office is here. If you are looking up contact information for an instructor, check the directory here. Email is usually the best way to contact an instructor initially. Please be patient during summer, as many faculty are not on campus during the summer and may not check email frequently.
- If you are having trouble with a prerequisite or cohort restriction issue, feel free to contact us (email@example.com) or the department the course is offered in (i.e. Biology, Math, English) with questions. If you are new transfer student, make sure your transfer credit has been articulated if you believe you have already met a prerequisite. You can check on that by calling the registrar’s office at 336 334 5946 or checking your degree evaluation.
- If a course you want is full and the instructor can’t sign you in, be sure to check UNCGenie on a regular basis (a couple of times a day), to see if seats have opened. Make sure you have your advising code handy (you receive your advising code when you meet with your advisor) so you can register quickly if seats in the class open up. If you are not sure how to look at UNCGenie or register, make an appointment with your advisor. These are some helpful resources for looking up and registering for classes:
- Finally, if you cannot get in a class before the first week of classes, know that you can register for classes up until 11:59pm on Friday of the first week of classes. Lots of people drop and add classes that whole week, so you may be able to grab a seat then. You can also try going to the class the first day and seeing if the instructor will sign you in. Be sure to take a drop/add form with you.
