Helpful Registration Tips

  • Course planning began Oct. 25.  Bring your Degree Works audit with you when meeting with your advisers.
  • Register for your arts and liberal arts classes at the same time, if possible. You may enter the system as many times as you wish during the registration periods. When making changes at any time, you must be careful not to dip below full-time status. Consult with your advisers when making changes to your schedule if necessary.
  • Full-time registration requirement. Unless permission is granted by the dean of your arts school, you must register for at least 12 credits as an undergraduate or 9 credits as a graduate student. Begin at your arts school to submit a request to attend part-time. A new approval is required for each semester you plan to attend at less than full-time.
  •  Maximum Credit Rule. The UNC System policy requires that undergraduate students wishing to register for more than 18 credit hours in a semester must obtain permission from the dean of their program.  Contact your arts school for approval to exceed 18 credits. Students cannot exceed 21 credits in a semester for any reason.
  • Variable credit courses require you to enter the number of credits when registering for the class. If you register for an incorrect number of credits, simply go to “add or drop classes” and change the credits. Make sure to save the change.
  • Prerequisites. E-Z Arts will not permit you to register for a course unless you have taken the prerequisite. Occasionally, the system doesn’t recognize a transfer course as fulfilling a prerequisite. If this happens, contact your adviser.
  • Independent Study. A staff member in your arts school or in the Division of Liberal Arts will register you for an independent study. Only a full-time faculty member can supervise an independent study. A contract is required.
  • Limit on Class Withdrawals. Undergraduates may withdraw from no more than 16 credits over the course of their degree(s). For this reason, you should space your requirements out accordingly. UNCSA offers online classes during the summer.
  • Account Holds. You will not be able to register if you have an account hold. Check for holds in E-Z Arts  ahead of time to avoid being closed out of desired classes. 
  • PIN Reset. If you have forgotten your PIN, it can be reset by contacting the Registrar’s Office at the or by phone at 336-770-3295 or 336-770-3296.
