Upon your acceptance to UNCG, you will correspond with the Incoming Exchange Coordinator to help you get preregistered for courses. Upon your arrival to UNCG during orientation week, you will find out what we have been able to pre register you for, and how to add or drop more classes to have a full schedule before classes start. Full-time undergraduate students (students in their first four years of university) must take at least 12 hours of classes. Most students take an average of four or five classes (12-15 hours) although one can take as many as six classes (18 hours). Full-time graduate students (students studying for advanced degrees) usually take at least nine hours of graduate level courses (MBA courses may be in shorter modules). Graduate students need at least a minimum of 6 credit hours to be full time.
