Registering for Courses

Dates for advising and registration periods for each semester are published in the University's Academic Calendar, in each semester’s Registration Guide, and on the University Registrar’s Web site ( It is the student’s responsibility to be aware of all registration and advising periods. Registration for courses at UNCG is an automated process conducted through UNCGenie, UNCG’s student information system, which provides students with Web registration access.

Registration Process

New Freshman students register for courses during the summer orientation programs (SOAR) or after the completion of their orientation programs at the beginning of a semester.

Transfer, Former, or unclassified students receive registration instructions by e-mail before the beginning of each semester’s registration period.

Inter-institutional Registration
UNCG students desiring to take courses at one of the Greater Greensboro Consortium schools or one of the North Carolina Inter-institutional schools should obtain a Consortium form from the University Registrar’s Office, 180 Mossman Building, 336/334-5646.

UNCG students desiring to take an online course through one of the UNC system schools should make this request through The University of North Carolina Online Web site,

Continuing students, those currently enrolled in UNCG who are returning for another semester of work, receive instructions by e-mail for registering during the Early Registration periods in November (for spring semester) and in April (for summer/fall semester). Continuing students eligible to pre-register for the next semester who do not do so, will be required to pay a late registration fee.

Advising Codes

All undergraduates are required to meet each semester with their faculty advisors for assistance with course selection and to obtain semester advising codes. New advising codes are issued for the next semester during the advising period. Undergraduates must use advising codes to access the UNCGenie registration system, throughout the semester for schedule adjustment.
