Academic Advising

Your academic advisor is an incredible resource for ensuring you are selecting the appropriate classes and making progress on your degree. If you haven’t already met with your advisor, we highly encourage you to connect with them. Academic colleges’ and departments’ schedules may shift during registration week given the high volume of requests. Make an appointment now!

Changing Your Major

Prior to changing your major and/or minor

  • We encourage you to consider the implications on time-to-degree and cost.
  • View DegreeWorks to research majors and academic progression.

Current Students

To declare or change your major or minor:

  • Be sure you meet the prerequisites for admission to the department. You can view the academic department’s requirements on their web page.
  • Contact your academic department in person, by email, or by telephone to seek approval, as indicated on the department web page.
  • The academic department will review your request, which can take 5-10 business days, depending on the volume of requests. (More specific information may be available on the department web page or by contacting the department directly.)
  • If you are accepted into the new major, a change of major request form will be sent by the academic department to the Office of the Registrar. Typical processing time, once received in the Office of the Registrar, is 3-5 business days.

To drop a major or minor:

  • If you would like to drop your major or minor, using your University email address, send a request to identifying:
  • Your name
  • Your student ID number
  • Statement specifying “I want to drop my [insert major/minor name].”

New Students

Change of major on admissions application, before enrollment/registration:

  • If you listed a major on your admission application, but you want to change that major, please send an email requesting the major change to Include your name and date of birth in the email.
  • The admissions office will review your major change request and notify you of their decision.


DegreeWorks is an online tool that the University uses to determine if you have met the requirements of your degree for graduation. You can utilize it to see program requirements and track degree progress. DegreeWorks also provides:

  • What-If Audit to show how a change of major, minor, concentration or catalog year could impact your degree progress
  • Future Classes feature to see if a requirement could be fulfilled
  • GPA Calculator to see what is needed to achieve your desired GPA

Although DegreeWorks is a great online tool, it does not replace the need to work with your academic advisor. It is helpful to check your degree worksheet at the end of each term and also when registering for future terms.

  • To access DegreeWorks, log in to MyCharlotte, then click on the DegreeWorks icon under Quick Links.

Have additional questions? Check out these FAQs.

Repeat Course Overrides

Overrides are necessary if you want to take a course that you have previously taken.

Which courses may be repeated?

You may only register for a course if credit has already been earned for that course, if the course description in the University catalog indicates it “may be repeated for credit”. 

  • This applies to credit earned at UNC Charlotte or transferred from other Institutions.
  • The registration error message, “Repeated Course”, prevents students from registering for that specific course without a “REPEAT” override.
  • This override will ONLY handle the “Repeated Course” registration error message, however; additional overrides may be needed if other error messages are received.
How do I request a repeat override?
  1. Contact the person listed below based on your major’s college to request a repeat override.
  2. Register for your class ONLY IF the repeat override is approved.
  3. Approved overrides requested for classes that are currently in progress will be issued beginning three weeks after the first day of registration.
  4. After registering for the course, if you are doing a Grade Replacement Request, be sure to submit your request through by the deadline published in the Academic Calendar.
  5. At the end of the term, if credit is earned for the class, students are subject to the Repeating Courses policy in the University Catalog. The “REPEAT” override does not impact this policy.
