The pre-registration window for all continuing graduate students will run from April 3 to April 26. Continuing students who do not sign up for classes during this period will be charged a late fee by the Cashiers Office.

For a brief description of courses offered in the UNCG MBA program, please view The Graduate School Bulletin.

First day of class: There is usually an assignment in preparation for the first night of each class. Always check the syllabus of your course to be sure to be prepared.

Make-up classes: Throughout the course of the academic year and during the summer sessions, classes may be interrupted due to inclement weather, etc. In the event that a class is missed/cancelled, the MBA Program’s class make-up policy is that all make-up classes will be held on the Friday immediately following the missed class at the originally scheduled time. Please be sure to contact your instructor or the MBA Office (336.334.5390, mba@uncg.edu) if you have questions or concerns.
