Courses

As a Part-time Classroom Studies student, you can choose from a selection of UNC-Chapel Hill evening classes or daytime classes.

Selecting Your Courses

All registration is subject to availability of classes and space in the classes. Some courses have restrictions or require permission of the instructor to enroll. If you need to register for a restricted course, check with the department that offers the course to determine if the restriction will be lifted at any point or whether other arrangements can be made.

If you are a postbaccalaureate student who is not enrolled in a graduate degree program, you should secure permission from the instructor before registering for graduate-level courses or restricted undergraduate courses. A $20 late registration fee will be charged if your initial registration is done on the first day of classes or later.

Your semester registration may total eight or fewer credit hours. Pass/fail is not available in Part-time Classroom Studies courses.

For registration dates, see Registration. For more about the process, see the Student Orientation.

Daytime Courses

In addition to the evening courses listed below, you can register for daytime courses on campus as a Part-time Classroom Studies student. You can view course descriptions and class numbers by clicking on “class search” at registrar.unc.edu. When you are ready to register, you will need your Onyen and the Class Number for the course. Log in to ConnectCarolina and choose your courses. Registration is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Some courses may have space limitations or departmental restrictions. For course descriptions, see the online Graduate Record and Undergraduate Bulletin.

Part-time Classroom Studies students also may take online courses through Carolina Courses Online (CCO) or Self-paced Courses (SPC). However, undergraduate students planning to earn a degree at UNC in the College of Arts & Sciences should know that only eight CCO and/or SPC courses, or 24 credit hours, may be used towards your degree. Additionally, only two CCO/SPC courses may be taken in your major/minor field of study. Note that if you are planning to take an SPC course, you will need written approval by an advisor/dean in the College of Arts and Sciences before registering.
