College of Education Advising Center
In the College of Education, we like to empower our currently enrolled students to be Directors of their UNT Academic Experience. Our academic advisors support students through feedback and guidance related to:
- Course selection
- Graduation checks
- Degree-progress planning
- Referrals to COE Career Coaches
- Degree audits
- Referrals to campus resources, such as Financial Aid, Housing, Office of Disability Access, and faculty or departments. We are happy to help you get to them!
To schedule a virtual or in-person appointment visit unt.navigate.eab.com or through the Navigate Student app. Visit navigate.unt.edu for app download instructions and to see what else it offers, such as creating study groups, setting reminders, and finding resources.
Instructions for scheduling an appointment are available for Orientation students and current UNT students.
REMINDER: All students in their first semester at UNT, as well as students who are on academic alert or probation, are required to come in for advising prior to registration. Incoming first-time-in-college and transfer students are required to attend Orientation to meet with an advisor to register for courses.

Plan, Prepare and Execute: Academic Advising and DIY Enrollment
Advising is a multi-step process that makes sure you are in the right courses, meeting requirements, and discussing plans to get you through to graduation. As Advisors, we follow the same general steps you will see below, with a bit more context provided by our professional training and years of experience.
Review your account for holds at my.unt.edu
- Check your “Tasks” in MyUNT for holds and to-do list items such as Student Financial Obligation, Advising Required, Transcript Hold, and others. Click on those titles if they appear to learn more. If you see Advising Required, you will need to meet with your academic advisor.
Run a degree audit at mydegreeaudit.unt.edu to find out what you have already accomplished, and what you have left to graduate.
- Detailed instructions and visual aids for running and understanding your online degree audit can be found here: https://registrar.unt.edu/online-degree-audit
Determine the number of hours you want to take in the coming semesters—fall, winter, spring, and/or summer.
- Consider the following factors to create a balanced schedule: work obligations, personal life, and other commitments.
- Do you receive financial aid? Check with Student Financial Aid and Scholarships to see if you need to be full-time, part-time, or have other requirements.
Make a tentative plan for the courses you want to take:
- Your degree audit will help you find out what is left to get you through to graduation.
- Look up class descriptions at catalog.unt.edu. Be sure to look at the prerequisites for each class!
- Bring the plan you created to your next advising session.
- Register for classes!
- Use my.unt.edu to search for and add the classes that you are going to take.
Apply for graduation
The semester prior to your graduation, meet with your Academic Advisor to complete a graduation check and confirm your remaining courses and grades needed to meet graduation requirements.
