Registration

What is the cost of tuition and fees?

 

 

The current tuition rate for this academic year is listed on the Tuition and Fees page of the Financial Services website.

How do I register for classes?

Class registration is done through My UNC Charlotte. To register for classes log in to 49er express using your NinerNET username and password. From this location, you can view available class sections, add classes to your schedule, drop classes from your schedule, and view your schedule. Once readmitted, an advising hold is placed on a student’s account, requiring a student to meet with an advisor in their academic department before registering for courses.

What is an advising hold?

All readmitted students will have an advising hold placed on their account, requiring a student to meet with an advisor from the academic department of a student’s major to discuss registration. Once a student meets with an advisor, the hold will be lifted. If it is not lifted, please contact your advisor. 

When do I register for classes?

Registration for the summer I, summer II, and fall semester starts in mid-March and registration for the spring semester starts the beginning of November. Students are assigned a registration appointment time based on credit hours earned, which can be accessed through My UNC Charlotte. Please view the Academic Calendar for registration deadlines

Readmission

Can I be readmitted if I have a financial hold on my account?

No. You must fulfill your financial obligation to the university and have your financial hold lifted by the posted application deadline in order for your application to be fully processed. If you apply for readmission, but cannot get your financial hold lifted by the application deadline of the term you applied for; your application will be withdrawn from the university and you must reapply for any future term you wish to attend. This includes submission of another readmit application and fee. Please click here to sign in to Banner Self Service and view your record for possible financial holds.

Can I change my major?

Yes. If you are in good academic standing (2.0 CGPA or higher) you can change your major. Students must meet the prerequisite requirements for declaring a major, which are listed on the Academic Plan of Study.

Can I visit campus and talk with someone about coming back to school?

I got my acceptance letter. What do I do now?

What if I am approved for readmission but don’t enroll that term?

Your readmit application, and acceptance, is only good for the semester in which you apply. If you do not enroll, you must go through the application process again, submitting another application.

Course Credits

Can I get credit for work experience?

Although UNC Charlotte does not offer course credit for work experience directly, a student currently enrolled at UNC Charlotte may pass a specially prepared challenge examination and receive credit for a University course without having to do the normal course work. The student contacts the program in which credit is sought to request administration of an examination. Students may also receive up to 23 semester hours of course credit through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) developed by the College Board, which helps you receive college credit for what you already know.

Do my earned credits expire?

In most situations your earned credits from UNC Charlotte or your transfer credit from another institution will still count towards meeting graduation requirements. If the academic program you are pursuing is an accredited program or if the course content has changed drastically from when you first took the course, you may need to retake a course to meet graduation requirements. It is ultimately up to the discretion of the academic department to determine the courses you will still need to complete to fulfill your major requirements.  

Course Offerings

Can I take classes at another school if it isn't offered at UNC Charlotte?

Yes. You have a couple of options to do so.

The Greater Charlotte Consortium (GCC) is a cross-town course registration consortium that allows students to take classes at other consortium member institutions when the class is not offered at the student's home institution. Students must be enrolled full-time at their home institution to participate in the GCC.
