Registration & Advising
Registration & Advising
This page contains information to assist with course registration and departmental advising in the mathematics department.
Prerequisites and Registration
UNC Math Policy
 Formal prerequisites, as outlined in the UNCCH Catalog, must be completed prior to enrolling into Math courses;
 Undergraduate Admissions will post course credit on Connect Carolina student accounts, after receiving official transcripts and/or standardized test scores;
 Questions about receipt/processing of transcripts or standardized test scores may be directed towards Undergraduate Admissions at unchelp@admissions.unc.edu or 9199663621
 Questions about the processing of the Math Department ALEKS Placement Test or Calculus Placement Test scores may be directed to Jaxon Miller at jaxmill@email.unc.edu
 If a student is enrolled in a prerequisite course at UNC at the time of registration, ConnectCarolina will give them permission to register. If a student will take the prerequisite class elsewhere (e.g. community college or other 4year institution), then ConnectCarolina will not give them permission to register. The student will need to wait until the class is completed and credit is transferred in order to register.
Advising
Please read these instructions carefully, so that you do not miss the important advising deadline for the Math Department.
If you have an advising flag, attend a Group Advising Session on Tuesday, October 15th, Monday, October 21st, Wednesday, October 30th, or Thursday, November 7th. Please see Zoom information below.
Course registration for Spring 2025 opens on October 21st. You can check the time of your enrollment appointment by clicking “details” under the “Enrollment Dates” heading in your ConnectCarolina account.
If your primary major is Math, you have completed/are currently enrolled/have transfer credit for MATH 233, AND you have not been advised by the Math department before, you will find that an advising flag has been placed on your student account which prevents you from registering for Spring 2025 classes. You MUST attend a meeting with a Math departmental advisor before you can have your registration flag removed. The following instructions will assist you in making the department advising process run smoothly:
 Have your advising flag removed at a group advising session. Group sessions will be offered on Tuesday, October 15th, Monday, October 21st, Wednesday, October 30th, or Thursday, November 7th. All are welcome to attend a group advising session; a hold is not required.

 The Zoom information is listed on the signup sheet.
You can check to see if you have an advising flag by clicking “details” under the “Holds” heading in your ConnectCarolina account. If you have an advising hold, you will see a hold called “Advisor Approval Required.” You can see a visual of the holds at: https://registrar.unc.edu/guide/planningforregistration/removeholdsduringregistration/
Please note that the advising meetings are being held through November 7th. Please do not wait until your registration appointment time arrives to meet with an advisor. Advisors have agreed to be available prior to the registration period for your convenience so that your flag will be lifted, and you can register when your appointment time opens. Please allow 24 hours after attending a session for your hold to be removed.
A summary with general advising information for undergraduate students in the Department of Mathematics can be found in these slides.
Information includes an overview of the math major, course overviews, graduate classes, graduate school, departmental opportunities, and careers in mathematics.
Closed Course Information
***There will be no Math Department Closed Course Request Forms available for Fall 2024***
The last day to add to the ConnectCarolina waitlist is Friday, August 23rd. If you are hoping to enroll in a class that is closed, please add yourself to the waitlist and continue to watch enrollments to see if any vacancies occur.
If you are still interested in a closed math class and have not rolled in from the waitlist by the first day of class, then you may consider attending the first week of class (with instructor permission) to see if the closed class status changes. There must be chairs available for you to sitin a class; sitting on the floor is not permitted.
There are no other waitlist options available for Fall 2024.
Placement Information
Students entering UNCChapel Hill as firstyear students are encouraged to take a standardized math exam (e.g. ACT, AP, IB) before the end of their senior year of high school, if they plan to take a class in the precalculus/calculus sequence or a STEM class that requires a math background. Please note these scores must be sent to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Office of Undergraduate Admissions, so that they will be available for placement purposes during summer registration.
Students who have completed MAT171 or MAT172 in the NC Community College system or have math transfer credit from other universities with a grade of C or higher can get math placement credit that way and do not need standardized math exam scores. Transcripts must be submitted to UNCCH admissions.
Students who do not have standardized math exam scores or transfer credit can take the ALEKS placement test. Students who know calculus but have not taken the AP test can take the Calculus placement tests.
Students who do not have any placement scores or transfer credit in their Connect Carolina account will not be able to register for courses like MATH 130, MATH 231, and CHEM 101 that require math prerequisites, but may enroll in MATH 110 and earn placement credit this way.

Noteworthy Placement Considerations
 MATH 115, 116, 117, 118, and 119 all satisfy the General Education Quantitative Reasoning (QR) requirement and are open to all students (no prerequisites).
 The AP Statistics Exam is not accepted for math credit or placement
 For students who took International Baccalaureate tests prior to 2021, credits are granted for IB Mathematics and Further Mathematics but not for Mathematical Studies. Please see this table for details.
 SAT MATH scores will only be accepted as placement for new or transfer students who are beginning with the Fall 2024 term. Students who started at UNCCH prior to Fall 2024 and have no other means of placement credit will need to take the ALEKS Placement Test for placement.
 Additional information on exams accepted for placement credit is given here.
Placement Tests Offered at UNC
The Mathematics Department offers Calculus placement tests each semester on the last business day before classes begin. The departmental calculus placement exam is open only to students who already have been placed into MATH 231 or above. This exam is not a means to award credit. Rather, it is a means to appropriately place students within the calculus sequence.
The Math Department also offers an ALEKS placement test for Algebra and Precalculus. This test is intended for students who do not already have placement scores via the ACT or SAT Math Subject Test, but any student may take it. Students can take ALEKS at any time using online proctoring.
For coursespecific placement questions not answered here, contact Dr. Linda Green.
