Overview

  • Undergraduate students register for classes in two waves. During Wave 1 undergraduates can register for up to 13 credit hours. During Wave 2 undergraduates can register for up to 17 credit hours, including 4 waitlisted credit hours. Open enrollment begins after Wave 2 at which time students can register for up to 18 credit hours.
  • Registration appointments open every 3-hours beginning at 7:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 4:00 p.m. Once a registration appointment opens, students can adjust their schedules until the end of the given wave. Students can use the Tarheel Tracker to calculate the credit hours used to assign their registration appointment. Under degree requirements is “Calculated Hours for Registration.” This section calculates the number of credit hours a student has that determines their day of registration.The hours here are different from the degree applicable hours. To determine a student’s day of registration, credit hours are calculated as follows:
    • All hours completed while in residence at UNC
    • UNC-accepted transfer credit hours
    • Completed and posted study abroad credits
    • By-examination (BE) and placement (PL) credits are excluded
    • Current term and all in-progress hours are excluded
    • Students in groups approved by the Priority Registration Advisory Committee (PRAC) to receive priority registration will register on the first day of each wave. Registration appointments will be assigned based on terms in residence.
    • Students in the Honors Program will automatically be assigned the 7:00 a.m. registration appointment on the day they register.
    • Graduate, professional, post-baccalaureate, incoming first-year and non-degree seeking students will register in accordance with their program.
