Get Advised

Advising is available prior to and during registration for continuing students. You should contact the office of your adviser and schedule an appointment one to two weeks prior to your scheduled registration time. It is strongly recommended that all students see their advisers prior to the beginning of registration. Advisers provide the following:

  • Help with course selection
  • Graduation checks
  • Degree audits
  • Referrals to campus resources

For more information, visit advising.unt.edu

Advising is mandatory for ALL students on academic probation. If you are on academic probation, or if the department of your major requires that you be advised before you register, then the registration system will ask that you enter an advising code before you will be allowed to schedule classes.

Advising procedures vary by college. Contact your advising office for more information. Call at least one week ahead of your registration date to schedule your appointment

Graduate students must comply with departmental requirements for advising. Contact the advising office of your major for specific instructions. Check http://tsgs.unt.edu/academics/advisors for more information.

Orientation and Advising for New Undergraduate Students

Course Permission Numbers

If you are registering for restricted courses, special problems, internships, or any course with variable credit, you must obtain the course permission number prior to registering for those courses.

In addition, your course selection may be restricted either due to state or university policy or departmental advising. Check with the department of your major to find out if there are any restrictions on your enrollment.

Federation Course Registration

UNT students wishing to attend graduate courses at Texas A&M University--Commerce or Texas Women's University under the cooperative enrollment program of the Federation of North Texas Area Universities should first secure approval from their major advisor for the specific courses. The advising clearance form should be presented at the Toulouse Graduate School, Eagle Student Services Center, Room 354 (see map) for registration in these courses. Students register at UNT for TAMU-C or TWU courses desired under the appropriate UNT departmental prefix and course number 5900 and 5910 (for master's level courses) or 6900 or 6910 (for doctoral level courses). The course title appearing on the UNT academic transcript will be identical to that of the course as offered by the other institution. Class schedules for both TAMU-C and TWU are available online.

Special Notice to Graduate Students

You may have been provisionally admitted during the current semester without the required standardized test (such as the GRE). However, you will not be allowed to register for future semesters unless you have a satisfactory test score on file in the Toulouse Graduate School. Only official score reports from the Educational Testing Service are acceptable.
