Attending UNC Charlotte

Student Responsibility

Each student is responsible for the proper completion of his or her academic program, for familiarity with the Catalog, for maintaining the grade point average required, and for meeting all other degree requirements. Students assume academic and financial responsibility for the courses in which they enroll and are relieved of these responsibilities only by formally terminating enrollment. The advisor will counsel, but the final responsibility remains that of the student.

A student is required to have knowledge of and observe all regulations pertaining to campus life and student behavior. Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with academic terminology located in the Glossary section of this Catalog.

Email is the official form of communication at the University; each student is responsible for checking their email regularly, as well as maintaining communication with the University and keeping a current address and telephone number on file with the Office of the Registrar.

While associated with the University, each student is expected to participate in campus and community life in a manner that will reflect credibly upon the student and the University. The University has enacted two codes of student responsibility –The UNC Charlotte Code of Student Academic Integrity and The UNC Charlotte Code of Student Responsibility – which are summarized in this Catalog and available in full online at As students willingly accept the benefits of membership in the UNC Charlotte academic community, they acquire obligations to observe and uphold the principles and standards that define the terms of UNC Charlotte community cooperation and make those benefits possible. This includes completion of institutional surveys as requested by the University for program assessment and improvement.

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte is open to people of all races and is committed to equality of educational opportunity and does not discriminate against applicants, students, or employees based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, or disability.
