The English Department seeks to promote undergraduate learning by coordinating the English major and its several concentrations and course combinations that will ultimately aid English students in successfully achieving their goals and graduate on time.

Current English Students: Make an appointment with your Advisor, Ms. Gina Kelley, via Connect (connect.uncc.edu). If no appointment times are available, email your Advisor to schedule an appointment. You find your primary advisor's information in Connect and/or DegreeWorks.

Location: Check-In for advising in Fretwell (2nd floor) at the Department of English front desk.

BEFORE you meet with Ms. Kelley for advising, you MUST familiarize yourself with our various concentrations and minors, all of which may be found here.

If DegreeWorks does not align with what you expect, please make an appointment with Ms. Kelley if your concerns need an immediate response (e.g., graduation, etc.).

FAQs: Please refer to these FAQs below, as they may help you answer your question without coming in for a walk-in appointment.

If you would like to declare a major, concentration, or minor offered by the English Department, please send Gina Kelley (gkelly1@uncc.edu)  your request with your student ID#, and she will declare it for you. 

Please see the requirements for the degrees at http://english.uncc.edu/undergraduate-program.

If you require a permit to register for an ENGL course, please email jmussing@uncc.edu She is the only person who issues permits for our department, and she processes them as they are received. If you are trying to register for a course in any other department that requires a permit, you must contact that department. ENGL cannot issue permits for non-ENGL courses.

If a course is full, you should add yourself to the waitlist in Banner. If the course does not have a waitlist, I advise you to keep an eye on the course to see if anyone drops it so that you may add it. No one can issue you a permit to add an ENGL course that is full.
