REMINDER: All students in their first semester at UNT, as well as students who are on academic alert or probation, are required to come in for advising prior to registration. Incoming first-time-in-college and transfer students are required to attend Orientation to meet with an advisor and register for courses.

Better prepare for advising with our DIY Advising page, our COS Ambassador office hours, or the UNT Registration guide!

Drop-in Advising

Drop-in advising will be available during early registration for the following groups on their registration dates:

Registration Group Date Time Location URL
Honors Monday, March 20 9-11:30am & 1-4pm HH 283
Seniors Thursday, March 23 9-11:30am & 1-4pm HH 283
Juniors/Post-Baccalaureate Thursday, March 30 9-11:30am & 1-4pm HH 283
Sophomores Thursday, April 6 9-11:30am & 1-4pm HH 283
Freshmen Thursday, April 13 9-11:30am & 1-4pm HH 283

Drop-in advising is offered every Tuesday of the spring semester from 1pm to 4pm in Hickory Hall 283.

These drop-in advising sessions can help with quick questions about:

  • General information on your degree
  • Dropping a course (last day to drop is April 7th)
  • Confirmation of courses you've planned for the next semester or this summer
    • Only for students without an advising hold
  • Adding a minor
  • Change a class to Pass/No-Pass (must declare by Feb. 24th)
    • Courses in your major or minor cannot be changed to Pass/No-Pass.

Changing your major or creating a full semester and/or graduation plan are good examples of things that cannot be covered in a drop-in conversation and require an appointment.


  1. Have your student ID number ready.
  2. Know what questions you need answered.
  3. Have an idea of what courses you want to take. Use our DIY Advising page to help.
  4. Drop-in advising appointments are meant to be quick, goal-oriented sessions. Please be ready for a swift conversation.
  5. If you join drop-in advising and have an appointment scheduled that you no longer need, please cancel that future appointment.

Departmental Faculty Advising

Students also have the option to meet with their department faculty advisor for advising.
