Why do I have an “Advising Required” hold on my account?
All new students will have an Advising Required hold on their account to ensure that they meet with an advisor prior to registering for courses. This hold will be removed by an advisor during the student's initial advising appointment. To schedule a New Student Advising appointment, contact the Front Desk Team for the Office of Academic Advising and Student Success via PureChat, email at Advising@untdallas.edu, or phone at (972) 338-1645 for assistance.
Can I take classes at a community college while I am attending UNT Dallas?
Yes, students should meet with their advisor prior to enrolling in courses at a community college to ensure the course will transfer to and satisfy a specific requirement at UNT Dallas.
Please note: Concurrent enrollment is not allowed for Seniors in their graduating semester.
Do I submit my updated transcripts to my advisor?
Please submit your sealed transcripts to be updated at the Registrar’s Office. However, you are encouraged to bring current transcripts as supporting documents for evaluation towards degree requirements in the interim until the Registrar’s Office has completed their update.
I want to change my major, do I need to see an advisor?
Yes, it is required that you consult with an advisor before changing your major. In order to change your major, you must meet with an advisor, complete a change of major form, and turn the change of major form into the Registrar's Office.
I don’t agree with the grade I received from my professor. How can I appeal my grade?
You should immediately try to resolve this by discussing it with your professor. Please follow the process that is located in the Student Policies.
Remember - Students bear the burden of proof to support their petition and may be required to provide supporting justification/documentation to appeal their case. Also, please read this document carefully as there are some time sensitive stipulations in this process!
What is a Graduation Check and why do I need one?
A graduation check is the last final check to make sure all requirements have been met in order to graduate. A graduation check should be completed the semester before you intend to graduate or at the beginning of the graduating semester at the latest. If there is a discrepancy, then you should have time to make an adjustment (i.e. add/drop). You may contact the Advising Office at (972) 338-1645 or email Advising@untdallas.edu to schedule your graduation check appointment.
I am a Senior, when do I have to apply for graduation?
You will need to file your application online at the beginning of your graduating semester.
