What You Need to Know for the Spring Semester at UNC Greensboro

The start of the holiday season means the countdown to the end of the fall semester for UNC Greensboro students.

The start of the holiday season means the countdown to the end of the fall semester for UNC Greensboro students. But after just a few short weeks, UNCG students will find themselves back in session with the start of the Spring 2023 semester. To ensure students have the key dates in mind for spring and summer 2023 at the University of North Carolina Greensboro, here’s a rundown on what you need to know to prepare for the upcoming terms at UNCG.

How long is winter break at UNC Greensboro?

Students at the University of North Carolina Greensboro have a month of classes for winter recess, which runs from December 9th – January 8th.

The final day of Fall 2022 classes is Wednesday, November 30th, the week after the Thanksgiving holiday, and students then have one day off to study for finals before exams start on December 2nd. The Registrar’s Office has posted the Fall 2022 exam schedule online to help students plan the days to remain on campus. Finals run through December 8th and are followed by commencement on December 9th for those students graduating at the end of the fall semester.

Final fall semester grades are due on December 10th and will be posted to students’ online portal accounts shortly after that.

When does the spring semester start at UNCG?

The first day of Spring 2023 classes at the University of North Carolina Greensboro is Monday, January 9th.

Students have one week to finalize their class schedule, as the deadline to add or drop courses for the spring semester is Friday, January 13th. This is also the last day to withdraw from a course and receive a refund on the tuition and fees for the enrolled credit hours.

How many hours is a full schedule of classes at UNCG?

Students at UNC Greensboro are considered full-time when enrolled in 12 credit hours worth of courses. However, full-time students usually take five courses per semester, and because the average course awards three credit hours, most students take 15 to 16 credit hours per semester. To graduate within four years, undergraduate students should plan to enroll in 15 to 16 credit hours per semester.

Students may not enroll in more than 18 credit hours per semester, given the expected time outside the classroom to complete required studies, papers, and projects. UNC Greensboro students with a grade point average above 3.0 may be allowed to take up to 21 credits per semester, but the Dean must approve this for Undergraduate Studies.

Some scholarship and grant programs require students to maintain a full-time schedule as part of the financial award. Students are advised to check the credit hour requirements of any financial aid or award programs offered, in addition to departmental requirements, to ensure they are on track for graduation.

For the Spring 2023 semester, UNC Greensboro will observe spring break from March 4th to 12th.

Does UNC Greensboro have a spring break?

Yes, UNC Greensboro has a spring break from March 4th – 12th for the Spring 2023 semester. This is earlier in the year than most national colleges and universities, but UNC Greensboro resumes classes earlier in January than most schools, resulting in an earlier spring break.

The week before spring break marks some important milestones in the semester. Midterm grades are due on Friday, February 24th, and March 3rd, the day before break begins, is the final day a student can withdraw from a course without receiving a “WF” (withdrawal failure) on their academic transcript.

The week students return from spring break is when academic advising appointments begin for the Fall 2023 semester.

Does UNC Greensboro have midterms?

Yes, most courses at UNC Greensboro have some midterm exam, term paper, or project, usually submitted before spring break to be incorporated in the midterm grades due to the Registrar’s office on February 24th. These grades are intended to give students a sense of their academic standing before the withdrawal deadline on March 3rd.

When do spring semester classes end at UNCG?

The last day of classes for the Spring 2023 semester at UNC Greensboro is Wednesday, April 26th. As with the fall semester, students have a one-day reading period on the 27th to study before final exams begin the following day.

The 27th is the final day students who plan to graduate in Spring 2023 can be cleared for graduation following their final exams.

When are the finals at UNC Greensboro?

Final exams for the Spring 2023 semester at UNC Greensboro will occur from April 28th – May 4th. The university has not yet posted the spring final exam schedule, but exam day and times by course should be posted near the start of the semester.

Commencement for those students graduating in the spring will take place on May 5th and grades for Spring 2023 courses will be posted beginning on May 6th.

Does UNC Greensboro offer summer courses?

Yes, the University of North Carolina Greensboro offers two summer sessions for students looking to take additional credit hours over the summer. To remain a full-time student over the summer, students must enroll in six credit hours during each of the two summer sessions. However, this is only if a scholarship or grant program requires maintaining full-time status as part of the funding.

The two Summer 2023 options at UNC Greensboro are:

  • Summer Session 1: May 10th – June 14th
  • Summer Session 2: June 15th – July 20th
