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 UNCG.


Your University ID# will be sent to you via email within 48 hours of admission. Make note of this number for the future. For reference, it’s included at the bottom of all post-admit email communications you’ll receive.

Apply for financial aid by filing your FAFSAThe UNCG Federal School Code is 002976. If you plan to apply for financial aid, do it as early as possible for the best packaging. January 15th is the priority deadline, meaning you’ll get the maximum aid consideration by filing before this date. However, we award financial aid until the start of the semester. The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships can provide more information about our process.


Confirming your intent to enroll at UNCG is the most important way to lock in your seat. First-Year Fall admits can confirm their intent to enroll beginning on February 1st through May 15th. Spring and summer admits can confirm as soon as they’re accepted. Transfer Students and Graduate Students can confirm as soon as they’re accepted.

Setting up your university accounts will give you access to all the systems UNCG students need to conduct their day-to-day business. Within 48 hours of confirming your intent to enroll, you will receive an email with instructions about how to claim your UNCG email on iSpartan, which will also give you access to other online tools you’ll use as a student.

  • 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. Use your ID# number to create a PIN. Your University ID# and PIN will give you access to explore UNCGenie.
  • 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.

In preparation for studying a language at UNCG, it is important to know which course is your best starting point for that process. If you plan to continue a language that you have already studied, you must take the appropriate online placement diagnostic before registering for classes.

The diagnostic is fully online, will take 15-30 minutes to complete, and is multiple-choice (no listening or speaking involved). Information on the testing process and FAQ can be found on the Languages, Literatures, and Cultures website.

We offer an online module (ONL100) to all online students. To enroll in the module, go here. You’ll receive an email when you have been officially enrolled in the module and you can access it via Canvas, where you’ll be taking your classes. This module walks you through the basics of UNCG, our online programs, and what you need to know to be a successful online student.

You’ll set up your own advising session directly with your assigned advisor. We call this Advising and Registration by Appointment. Plan ahead by reviewing your degree evaluation on Degree Works, checking your degree requirements via the university catalog, and researching available courses on the UNCGenie class schedule. Then look up your advisor on UNCGenie and call or email to set up an appointment. We recommend completing online orientation (ONL100) prior to contacting your academic advisor. More information about how to prepare for and schedule this meeting is available on the Students First website

First-Year and Transfer Students should provide their official, final high school transcripts, official AP or IB scores, and any college transcripts directly from the accrediting institution in one of the following ways:

  • Hand-delivered to the UNCG Office of Undergraduate Admissions
  • Sent to us electronically
  • Mailed to UNCG Office of Undergraduate Admissions, P.O. Box 26170, Greensboro, NC 27402-6170

Graduate 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:

UNC Greensboro Graduate School

Greensboro, NC 27412

UNCG assesses for tuition and fees each semester. Bills are sent electronically, with most students notified of fall semester bills in early July via their UNCG email. UNCGenie is where you can view and pay your bill and, if needed, designate an authorized user to make payments on your behalf. To make paying for college more manageable, UNCG offers an interest-free payment plan that allows for five, four, or three installments, depending on when you enroll. Learn more about how to pay your bill and payment options on the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships website.
