• New students may apply online.

Please be aware that several of our programs require a secondary admissions process to the particular program.

Be sure to check our application deadlines to make sure you have everything complete on time. We often need additional information from applicants after the initial review of their applications due to incomplete and/or omitted information. All requested information must be received by our posted deadlines. Our application process typically takes four to six weeks once all materials are received by our office, and applying too close to the deadline is strongly discouraged due to these time constraints.

All applicants must submit:

  • Application and fee or fee waiver (Note: UNCG accepts fee waivers for first time students from SAT (College Board or Counselor), ACT, and NACAC. We do not participate in the CFNC Free Application Week.)
  • Official high school transcript, GED scores or adult high school diploma, if applicable (not required for 2Plus or second-degree seeking applicants)
  • Official scores from the SAT or ACT (required for freshmen and transfers with fewer than 24 college transfer hours). Request that official scores be forwarded to UNCG directly from the testing agency.
    • UNCG's SAT school code is 5913.
    • UNCG's ACT school code is 3166.
  • Official college transcripts from any post-secondary institution(s) attended, even those granting summer, extension, developmental, and technical credit.
  • International students should visit the International Programs Center for additional requirements.
