How to Register for Courses

Summer 2021 Registration

Please check back for information on when Summer 2021 registration will open.

How Many Classes Should Students Take?
  1. Consider how many hours you work a week. Don't forget to count time spent on work while you are at home or otherwise not in the office.
    • How many hours do you work a week?
  2. Consider your family/home responsibilities. Do you have children or are you a caregiver for someone in your family? Are you currently helping your children with remote/virtual learning?
    • What family/home responsibilities do you have?
  3. Plan to spend at least 9 hours a week on each course you enroll in. This means if you take two classes, you should plan to spend at least 18 hours a week on schoolwork. If you take three classes, you should plan to spend at least 27 hours a week on schoolwork.
    • How many hours a week can you devote to schoolwork?
  4. Plan for success. Students are often surprise that graduate coursework requires significantly more time, contemplation, and independent work than their undergraduate classes. Therefore, because we want all our students to be successful and pass their courses, and given that we are still experiencing a pandemic that sometimes causes unexpected changes in our schedules, we recommend taking a lighter, rather than a heavier load.
    • We recommend that your coursework plus work hours not exceed 60 hours of work per week.

If you are unsure about how many classes to take after reviewing this information, please email behvDLinfo@unt.edu with any questions you may have or to set up a Zoom or phone appointment for advising.
