Schedule Hero is UNCG’s tool for registering for classes. It makes it faster and easier to search for classes, create a schedule that meets your needs, and (most importantly) register for courses each semester.

Here’s how Schedule Hero works

Search for the courses needed based on a DegreeWorks review and/or discussions with an advisor. Students must meet with their advisor each semester to receive an advising code!

Enter time conflicts due to work or other obligations where the student would be unavailable to attend class.

Generate schedule all possible options, compare to find the best choices, share links to schedules with advisors, and save favorites to a shopping card for easy registration later.

When the assigned registration window opens, visit the shopping cart and click “Register.” Students will be prompted to enter their advising code, then the system will complete their registration process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Schedule Hero is a web-based schedule planning tool for students. Schedule Hero allows students to easily find needed courses and automatically builds schedules around their busy life and time commitments.

Schedule Hero can be found on the Spartan Central site, as an icon on the iSpartan page, under the Registration menu in UNCGenie, and within the current student persona in the UNCG mobile app. You can also access Schedule Hero here.

Schedule Hero is for students to help plan, review and design the most efficient class schedule. By using this tool, students experience a more simple and less cumbersome registration process. This tool is useful for students trying to build a schedule from many possible options.

After meeting with your advisor and reviewing required classes in DegreeWorks, you may start planning your schedule as soon as the course schedule for the next term is available to view on the web. However, you will not be able to register until your designated registration time.

In the “Add Courses” page, click the “Done” button to get back to the main page to generate a schedule. On the bottom of the page, click “Generate Schedule.” Courses and breaks selected will be included in the schedule(s) generated.

Use the Breaks option to block off times during which you cannot or do not want to attend class. You can also click on “options” next to courses in your Course List to deselect specific sections you do not wish to take.

Some courses are marked as closed and open for registration closer to the start of the term for scheduling reasons. Make sure you set your schedule filter for “Open and Full” classes so these classes will be displayed. You can still generate a schedule with closed classes but you will not be able to register until the course is opened for registration.

Go to “course status” and change course status to “Open & Full w/Waitlist Open.”

After talking with your advisor and reviewing DegreeWorks, go into Schedule Hero and search for specific courses needed. If there is a specific section you need to register for, use the Options button next to the course selected in the Course List to select the specific section you need.

Use the tab labeled “Search by Course Attribute.” This will allow you to search courses by specific attribute, including various MAC competencies and more.

Select “Change” next to Levels and select Graduate.

No. Search for your course, click add course, repeat until all courses are visible in the list on the right. Once all are shown, click “Done” to return back to the schedule screen.

You can select “Change” next to terms to select a new term. Terms in which you are eligible to register for will be the only options available.

After generating your schedule, you can click up to four schedules and compare them in one window. Choose the schedules you want to compare, then click “compare.”

Check the square box to select all courses and click the X button to delete them all. You can also select the X next to a course in the “Course List” to remove an individual course.

The heart means you can favorite a specific schedule. When trying to decide between multiple options, click the “heart” and that becomes one of your top picks. You have the option to label your favorite schedules before your registration time so you can easily access the schedule you liked best.

If you like a course section, click the “lock” button to lock in a specific course section. Schedules generated after that will include only the locked section for that course. However, you are not required to lock sections prior to sending a preferred schedule to cart.

Once you’ve selected your courses and are on the main screen, click the “options” button next to each course to view course sections. From there you can view all sections with meeting times, instructors and open seats. Check the boxes that correlate to the courses you want included in your schedule. Click “save & close.” On the Main Screen, click “generate schedule” to view results.

Go to “Add Course,” then go to the “Search By Instructor” tab.

There are several modes of instruction: Face to Face, Hybrid, Online with no specific meeting time, and Online with specific meeting time. Please note Hybrid course includes face to face interaction in a classroom as well as online learning.

Click on the “options” button next to a course and see which sections are online or face to face by the listed instructional Mode. Additionally, you can filter by online or face to face by selecting the “Instructional Mode” filter on the main page.

Schedule Hero only allows unique break names. If you have two work breaks, try naming them work-1, work-2, etc.

Be sure that the checkbox is selected by each break entered.

If a course is marked as having a prerequisite, check the details of the course or search for the course in the main UNCG course catalog.

Select the schedule that best fits your needs and click on the “View” link. At the top of that page, click “Send to Registration Cart” button to send the schedule to your shopping cart. You can then click on your shopping cart in the top navigation and click the “Register” button there to register for your classes.

Remember: All prerequisites and restrictions still apply, and you may not be able to register for classes if you have holds. The scheduler does not override any restrictions and you will be alerted within Schedule Hero if any requirements are not met.

The courses you selected will stay on your course list and your shopping cart in Schedule Hero until you register or clear you cart.

Scheduler Registration Cart stores the schedule you sent from Scheduler. The classes will stay in the “cart” until you register for them. You can also clear your cart here.

No, creating a schedule is part of the registration process, but not the end. On the desired schedule selected, click “Send to Cart” then navigate to your cart and select “Register” to complete the registration process.

Go in to Schedule Hero, click on “view” to open a schedule and select “Send to Shopping Cart.” Then, select “Clear Cart.”

Once you have chosen the schedule you want to send to your shopping cart, click the “print” button to print, or the “email” button to email it to yourself or a friend.

Additional time can be added between classes on top of University standard of 15 minutes.

Not yet! Schedule Hero does not connect to DegreeWorks at this time. Please reference your DegreeWorks audit and consult with your advisor before beginning to plan your schedule.

No. Schedule Hero is simply a tool that helps you plan courses for your semester. Students are not required to use this tool to register.
