Summer registration deadlines loom closer

Thursday, April 26, 2012

DENTON (UNT), Texas -- The University of North Texas is encouraging students to take advantage of summer enrollment to collect more credit hours within a shorter time period. Enrollment deadlines for Summer II beginning July 9 (Monday) are inching closer as the spring semester comes to an end. Students must register before June 25 (Monday) to get the classes they need for the second summer session.

UNT recommends that students meet with their department advisors to guarantee taking classes in the summer will not affect their future financial aid. Students can register for all courses at my.unt.edu. To find the summer course catalog, click on "Student Center/Register" under "My Page." Click on "Add a Class" and follow the prompt to enroll in a course.

While some students shy away from summer courses, it is often a way to ensure that students will be able to graduate within four years. In addition, students may not realize financial aid can be extended to cover summer courses. Taking summer classes is also a way of spreading out course loads throughout the student's time at UNT to make their degree process less stressful. The four-week summer sessions also condense a semester's worth of information into a fast-track course with intense focus on the subject.

Students who are taking fall courses must register before August 6 (Monday). It is also encouraged that students visit their academic advisors prior to registering to ensure the necessary classes are selected. The fall 2012 semester begins August 29 (Wednesday).

For more information on summer and fall enrollment, contact the UNT Office of the Registrar at 940-565-2000 or visit the office located in the Eagle Student Service Center across from Willis Library with parking on Highland Street between avenues A and C at 1147 Union Circle.
