Academic Information
Academic Advising
•
•
•
•
Academic advising is available to assist students in the development and pursuit of meaningful
educational goals. Advisors and counselors are available to assist students with the following:
Clarification of life and career goals
Development of suitable educational plans
Selection of appropriate courses and other educational experiences
Evaluation of student progress toward established goals
Specially trained advisors in the Undergraduate Advising Office (HKRY 120) serve as academic advisors
for the College of Engineering majors. Faculty advisors assist students in clarifying their academic interests
and career goals and are available in the academic department. All students are encouraged to meet
with their advisor every semester.
Degree Requirements
The basic structure of all bachelor’s degrees consists of a large set of general education requirements
common to all degrees (University Core Curriculum – 47 hours at UNT), a small set of requirements unique
to the school or college offering the degree (College Requirements), a set of requirements defining a
major field of study as determined by a department (Major/Professional Field/Concentration – a
minimum of 24 hours), a smaller set (minimum of 18 hours) for a lesser field of study (Minor) and electives
chosen freely or in consultation with an advisor to reach the minimum number of hours required for the
degree. All degrees require that 24 of the last 30 hours be earned at UNT and that at least 42 hours are
at the advanced level (3XXX and 4XXX courses).
Degree Audit
What is a Degree Audit?
A degree audit is an official document of the University. It lists all the courses needed to complete your
chosen degree and shows how all the courses you have completed are being applied toward your
degree.
When should I get a Degree Audit?
You should request a degree audit during your first semester at UNT.
You cannot graduate unless you have requested a degree audit!
How do I get a Degree Audit?
1. Contact the faculty advisor of your major for an appointment to request a degree audit. If you have
transfer work you will need an evaluated copy of all transcripts and a catalog description of all courses
completed. (Transcripts may be ordered at the Registrar’s Office in the ESSC). You must bring your
evaluated transcripts to your appointment with your faculty advisor.
2. The faculty advisor for your major will complete the degree audit request form. If you are declaring a
minor, you may do so at the time you meet with your faculty advisor.
3. A copy of the degree audit will be mailed to your permanent address (unless otherwise advised), and a
copy will be sent to the department of your major. Check MyUNT to ensure that your address is correct.
4. It is your responsibility to update each semester’s progress on your copy of the degree audit. If you feel
you need assistance, you should schedule an appointment with your advisor.
Graduation Application
You must apply for graduation at the beginning of the semester in which you intend to graduate. The
application may be obtained at the Registrar’s Office. The application must be submitted to the
Undergraduate Advising Office in HKRY 120. You must submit your application by the deadline listed in
the Schedule of Classes.
Academic Status
Good Standing
Students with at least a cumulative 2.00 UNT GPA are considered in Good Standing.
Academic Alert
Freshmen (students with less than 30 attempted hours) whose cumulative UNT GPA falls below 2.00 for
the first time are placed on Academic Alert. Students can only be placed on Academic Alert once;
they must raise their cumulative UNT GPA to 2.00 or higher during their Academic Alert semester or they
will be placed on Probation.
3
Probation
Students not eligible for Academic Alert whose cumulative UNT GPA falls below 2.00 will be placed on
Probation. Students on Probation during a Fall or Spring semester must raise their cumulative UNT GPA to
2.00 to return to Good Standing or earn a semester GPA of at least 2.25 to remain on Probation and
avoid suspension.
Suspension
During a Fall or Spring semester, Probation students who fail to raise their cumulative UNT GPA to a 2.00 or
earn a 2.25 semester GPA are placed on Suspension for one or more semesters. A first Suspension is for
one long semester, a second Suspension is for two long semesters and a third Suspension is for a
minimum of four long semesters. After students complete their Suspension period, they may return to UNT
on Probation.
Summer Sessions and Academic Status
Students who are on Probation cannot be placed on Suspension as a result of summer grades at UNT;
however, students in Good Standing may be placed on Probation as a result of summer grades at UNT.
Suspension students are eligible and are strongly encouraged to take summer courses at UNT. Students
on Suspension who attend UNT during the summer and raise their cumulative UNT GPA to 2.00 are eligible
to attend UNT during the Fall semester.
Semester Honors
President’s List
Students completing at least 12 hours of credit in regularly graded courses taken in residence during the
Fall or Spring semester with a grade point average of 4.0 are eligible for recognition on the President's
List. Students are notified of this recognition by the President’s Office.
Dean’s List
Students with a grade point average of 3.50 to 3.99 are eligible for recognition on the Dean's List if they
have completed at least 12 hours of credit in regularly graded courses taken in residence during the Fall
or Spring semester. Students are notified of this recognition by the Undergraduate Advising Office
(HKRY 120).
Graduation with Honors
Candidates for graduation whose overall grade point average is between 3.500 and 3.799 are eligible to
graduate cum laude; those whose GPA is between 3.800 and 3.999 are eligible to graduate magna
cum laude; and those whose GPA is 4.000 (all A's) are eligible to graduate summa cum laude. The
grade point average is based on grades earned in UNT and transferred credit courses. Hours earned
from pass/no pass courses and through correspondence and extension courses may not be counted in
calculating the GPA for determination of eligibility for graduation with honors. Candidates for a second
bachelor's degree are not eligible for graduation with honors.
Enrollment at UNT & Another Institution (Concurrent Enrollment)
•
•
•
•
Approval for concurrent enrollment at another university/college must be obtained in advance from the
Undergraduate Advising Office (HKRY 120).
The following guidelines apply for approval of Concurrent Enrollment:
The student’s combined course load at both institutions cannot exceed the course load allowed at UNT
for that term.
Students must meet residency requirements for concurrent enrollment to be granted.
Students who are concurrently enrolled during the semester they plan to complete all degree
requirements must wait until the following semester to file for graduation.
Course work taken concurrently at another university/college may not be accepted by UNT without prior
written approval.
Course Load
• The normal course load for a full-time student is 15 hours for a Fall or Spring semester, 6 hours for the
Summer term and 3 hours for 3 Week I.
• A student may schedule up to a maximum of 19 hours per Fall or Spring semester and 15 hours for the
Summer term.
• A student must be registered for a minimum of 12 hours to qualify as a full-time student. Students
receiving financial aid must consult the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office for course load
requirements.
4
Overload Approval
Fall or Spring Semesters
A student with a GPA of less than 3.0 may register for a maximum of 19 hours. Students who wish to register
for more than 19 hours (maximum 22 hours) in a Fall or Spring semester must meet one of the following
conditions and obtain approval in advance from the Undergraduate Advising Office (HKRY 120):
• At least a 3.0 GPA on a minimum 15-hour UNT residence load for the semester just completed.
• At least a 3.0 GPA on a minimum 12-hour UNT residence load for the summer terms just completed.
• At least a 3.0 GPA on all work completed at UNT and a minimum 24 hours of credit in residence.
Summer Semester
A student with a GPA of less than 3.0 may register for a maximum of 15 hours for the summer. Students who wish to
register for more hours must meet one of the following conditions and obtain approval in advance from the
Undergraduate Advising Office (HKRY 120):
• At least a 3.0 GPA on a minimum 15-hour residence load for the semester just completed.
• At least a 3.0 GPA on all work completed at UNT and a minimum 24 hours of credit in residence.
COURSE DUPLICATIONS
If a student’s transcripts contain the same course number more than twice, only the second course will be
treated as a duplication. The Registrar’s Office will include, without exception, any course repeated
more than once in the student’s cumulative GPA. However, only the last grade will be used in certifying
the student’s eligibility for graduation.
Dropping Courses or Withdrawal from UNT
It is the student’s responsibility to consult the Academic Calendar in the Schedule of Classes or at
www.unt.edu/catsched for the procedures and deadlines for dropping a course or withdrawing from
UNT. If a student has missed the drop or withdraw deadline, then the student will receive the earned
grade on his or her transcript. A student cannot drop or withdraw from UNT after the deadline has
passed.
Pass/No Pass Grading Option
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
Students who select the Pass/No Pass Grading Option must obtain approval from the Dean’s Office for
Undergraduates and Student Advising (HKRY 120). The following guidelines apply for students requesting
the Pass/No Pass Grading Option:
A maximum of 18 semester hours of credit under the pass/no pass option may be applied toward the
bachelor's degree. Only courses to be counted as freely chosen electives on the student's degree audit
may be scheduled under the Pass/No Pass option.
Any undergraduate student in good standing with a C average (2.0) or better on all work attempted in
residence at UNT may schedule one course a semester on the pass/no pass option. Incoming freshmen
also may elect this option. Graduating seniors may elect more than one pass/no pass course during their
final semester.
Students receive credit for courses successfully completed under the pass/no pass option, but these
hours are not used in calculating the grade point average.
Instructors are not told which students are enrolled under the pass/no pass option, and all students are
graded alike. If a student receives a grade of D or better from the instructor, the student's transcript
shows the course has been passed (P). If the course is not passed, the record shows NP and the hours
attempted are not used in calculating the grade point average.
The pass/no pass option for a particular course is elected at the time of registration. A student may
request to change to the regular grading system anytime before the end of the sixth week of classes or
the corresponding point of a summer term. If a student is registered in a course under the regular
grading system, a change to the pass/no pass option may be requested anytime before the end of the
sixth week of classes or the corresponding point of a summer term, provided eligibility requirements 1
and 2 above are met. (See dates in the Academic Calendar section of the current undergraduate
catalog.)
A student may not repeat under the pass/no pass option any course taken previously under the regular
grading system unless a grade of W was received in that course.
A student who changes majors is not automatically denied credit for a pass/no pass course that
becomes a degree plan requirement for the new major. The decision about a course meeting a
requirement for the student's new major is made by the Academic Dean. However, under no
circumstances is a grade of P changed to a letter grade.
Transfer students have the same pass/no pass privileges and restrictions, but they must successfully
complete 31 semester hours of regular graded courses at UNT to be eligible for graduation.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to take CSCE 1010?
Absolutely Not! This course is for non-majors only. The first CSCE course you should take is CSCE
1030, unless you have received AP Exam or transfer credit for this course and the credit has been
approved by the undergraduate advisor.
What courses should I take now?
Although your actual course schedule is up to you, there are some tips and guidelines to think
about:
Regardless of your actual degree choice, you will have several required courses in Math, Science,
and English, plus the CSCE major courses. Getting started in each of those tracks early is generally
a good idea, so you will have the prerequisites out of the way in later semesters. You should
strongly consider taking CSCE 1030 your first semester if you have not received AP credit for the
course. You should also take whatever Math course your placement test results have
recommended for you.
Try to avoid loading your early semesters with all of your University core courses like Humanities,
Wellness, etc. Save a few of them for later semesters when you are taking more difficult upper
division courses in your major to give yourself a break.
Also remember that the higher course numbers may not be offered each semester. If you put all of
them off until your senior year, that year may become 2 years in order to complete all of the
required courses.
In order to meet the 45 hours of advanced courses requirement, try to select 3000 or 4000 level
courses when selecting electives to fulfill your non-major requirements. You do not have to wait
until your Junior or Senior year to register for one of these courses as long as you meet the
prerequisites, if any.
Be sure to look at the prerequisite flows for the appropriate degree on page 12 or 16 of your
orientation handout. You should also note the degree requirements worksheet (pages 6, 9 or 13)
and list of approved courses (pages 7 or 11) for satisfying the various core and elective
requirements. The handout also contains some sample semester schedules (pages 8, 10 or 14). Use
these as a guide, but remember your schedule will likely differ depending on your starting point in
Math, as well as your chosen electives.
Minor in Computer Science
An undergraduate minor in Computer Science requires a minimum of 18 hours of computer
science courses, including at least 6 advanced hours. Required courses are CSCE1030, 1040 and
2050. The six hours of advanced courses must be taken at UNT.
How can I get extra money?
Students who are Texas residents and enrolled for the first time in a Texas college or university in the
Fall of 1997 or later may be eligible for a $1000 rebate of tuition if they complete their first
bachelor’s degree having attempted no more than 3 hours in excess of the minimum number of
semester credit hours required to complete the degree. For additional information and to apply
for the rebate during the semester of application for graduation, contact the Registrar’s Office.
