6 Drop Rule
Undergraduate students who enrolled in higher education for the first time after fall 2007 will not be permitted to drop a total of more than six (6) courses, including any course a transfer student dropped at another institution unless the student shows good cause for dropping more than six (6) courses. For more information on the 6 Drop Rule, please see the policy listed at the Registrar's office website. Please also see "Limitation on Course Drops" under Enrollment in the UNT Dallas Catalog.
Application for Graduation
Applications for graduation are available in the Registrar's Office located in Building 1.
Degree applications are accepted only from undergraduate students who have a minimum overall C average. See “General University Requirements” in the Academics section of the catalog for grade point calculation details. Before applying, the student also must remove grades of I in required courses necessary for graduation if these courses increase the term/semester load beyond the maximum permitted.
Students otherwise eligible for graduation who complete their final course or courses elsewhere will not graduate at the end of the term/semester or summer session/term in which the work is completed because of the time required for obtaining transcripts; such students will have their degrees conferred at the close of a subsequent UNT Dallas term/semester.
A student in residence who wishes to enroll concurrently at another college must first secure the written permission of the appropriate dean at UNT Dallas. Failure to obtain advance approval may result in the refusal of the university to accept such work in transfer.
Students should complete the concurrent enrollment request form and turn it in to Academic Advising, Building 1, 1st Floor.
Special provisions for avoiding more than one minimum tuition charge are available for students enrolling concurrently in more than one state-supported institution of higher education. Students planning concurrent enrollment are cautioned to check these provisions prior to enrollment in any state institution.
A student may drop a course prior to the census date (the 12th class day of the fall or spring semester or the equivalent dates in a summer session) in the Office of the Registrar. Courses dropped prior to the census date will not appear on the student's transcript and will not be included in the limitation of dropped courses. For more information on course drops, please see the policy listed at the Registrar's office website. Please also see "Course Drops" under Enrollment in the UNT Dallas Catalog.
A student may take a course a second or subsequent time. The Office of the Registrar will post duplications at the request of the student, at the request of an academic advisor or upon review of the student’s record. Until a duplication is posted the Office of the Registrar includes a repeated course in the student’s cumulative record of hours attempted and grade points earned. For more information, please see the "Course Duplications" policy listed under Academic Information and Regulations in the UNT Dallas Catalog.
An incoming freshman or any undergraduate in good standing with a C average or better on all work attempted in residence at UNT Dallas may schedule one course a term/semester on the pass/no pass option. Seniors may elect more than one pass/no pass course during their final term/semester. For information, please see the "pass/no pass option" policy listed under Academic Information and Regulations in the UNT Dallas Catalog.
The normal load for full-time undergraduate students is 15 semester hours for each fall or spring term/semester, or 30 hours for the nine-month academic year. The normal load for full-time students is 12 hours for the summer term/semester. For more information on student loads, please see the policy listed at the Registrar's office website.
A student may withdraw from UNT Dallas any time prior to two (2) weeks before the first day of final examinations for the fall or spring semester or the equivalent dates for summer session. For more information on withdrawing, please see the policy listed at the Registrar's office website.
Effects of Withdrawal on Academic Status
Any student who withdraws from UNT Dallas prior to the end of the sixth week of classes (or the equivalent dates for summer sessions) is given grades of W and is not penalized with a reduced CGPA. Any student who withdraws after this period, but at least two weeks before the first day of final exams (summer session, six class meetings prior to finals; three week session, three class meetings prior to finals), is given grades of W or WF depending upon the student’s grade average at the time of withdrawal. Grades of WF are included as hours attempted in calculating a student’s minimum UNT Dallas cumulative grade point average required to remain in good standing. A student who does not officially withdraw from the university is held responsible for grades of F and is placed on probation or suspended from the university if the grades of F bring the CGPA below the minimum required.
