Congratulations on your acceptance to UNC Greensboro! We can’t wait to have you join our Spartan Family. Follow our admitted student checklist for a smooth transition to campus.
Once You’re Admitted
Confirming your intent to enroll at UNCG is the most important way to lock in your seat. Access your application portal to complete the Intent to Enroll form. Doing so reserves your spot in your program and allows you to set up your UNCG computer accounts. After completing the Intent to Enroll form, allow up to 24 hours before moving on to step two.
Within 48 hours of submitting your Intent to Enroll form you will receive an email regarding the activation of your UNCG computing accounts. Follow the instructions contained in that email in order to claim your computing accounts and reset your password. This will give you access to UNCG’s wireless network, Canvas, your UNCG email account, Microsoft 365, Box, WebEx, and other campus supported software.
Visit the Get My PIN page to activate your UNCGenie account. UNCGenie allows you to view and accept financial aid, update your contact information, view your assigned advisor, register for classes, view grades, order transcripts, and tend to all other academic matters.
UNCGenie is the portal you’ll use to register for classes, pay your tuition and fees, and also take care of other university-related business.
iSpartan is your official UNCG email account. Plan to check this account often, even in the months before classes start; you may receive important messages about financial aid, tuition, and more.
You can view your aid package on UNCGenie after it has been awarded. (Usually around March for early fall applicants.) Use your University ID and PIN to log in.
Complete your immunization forms and submit medical history forms via the Student Health Services portal. Immunization records are required by law within 30 days of course registration, so it’s essential you do this to remain enrolled. The UNCG Immunizations office is open Monday – Friday 8 am until 5 pm. The office is located on the second floor of the Anna M. Gove Student Health Center. Find Immunization Forms on the Student Health Center website.
Submit your own photo for your SpartanCard using the SpartanCard Center website. To get a SpartanCard, visit the SpartanCard Center located in 106 Moran Commons (the UNCG Dining Hall). Your UNC Greensboro photo ID can be used as a library card, meal card, and convenient form of payment across campus.
Your residency for tuition purposes determines your in-state or out-of-state status and may impact your admission, tuition, scholarship or financial aid eligibility. North Carolina residency for tuition purposes is governed by North Carolina state law. More information about North Carolina residency for tuition purposes can be found on the CFNC Residency Determination Service website.
Please ensure your residency status remains active. It is the student’s responsibility to notify our office of any change in classification. If your residency is set to expire before the start of your program, you must complete a residency reclassification application with the Residency Determination Services (RDS) at www.ncresidency.org.
Eligible students are automatically enrolled in and billed for the UNCG Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). If you have and wish to use your own health insurance, you must request a waiver. Visit the Student Health Services website for more information.
You will receive information from your program about registration. Visit the Registrar’s website for the latest Registration Calendar.
To view account information and to pay your bill, please login to the Student Account Center which is accessible from the UNCGenie homepage. Please note that bills are sent to you at your UNCG email address, and are issued after you have registered for classes. Be sure to check your iSpartan (UNCG email) account often.

After graduation and before registering for your second semester, all admitted students must submit:
- One, final official transcript from all colleges and universities where a bachelor’s degree and a graduate degree (if required by the program) was earned in the U.S. This transcript must be issued by the registrar’s office showing the degree awarded, earned credit hours, GPA and no courses in process.
- For international degree(s), an official course-by-course evaluation from a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES®) service, showing proof of earned U.S. equivalency bachelor’s degree and/or a graduate degree (if required by the program), credit hours and GPA. This evaluation must include degree awarded (verified) equivalency with no courses in process.
For a transcript to be considered official, it must be sent directly from the issuing college or university by US mail, electronic submission, or hand-delivered in a sealed envelope. The transcript must reflect degree(s) awarded and/or completed coursework and final grades. Note: in-progress coursework and student-uploaded transcripts are not considered official regardless of how they were obtained. If the transcript was issued to you and then opened and uploaded to your account during the application process, this is not considered official.
Please have your institution send official, electronic transcripts to [email protected].
Official transcripts and credential evaluations can be mailed to the address below:
