Based on new UNC System guidelines related to Minimum Admission Requirements (MAR), UNCG is in the process of evaluating all applications submitted for consideration for the Fall 2020 cycle. This includes students who were previously denied admission based on prior guidelines. We will be contacting students who are now deemed admissible based on the new UNC System MAR criteria and our secondary review process.
Future applicants that are experiencing financial hardships due to business closures, and unable to pay the application fee at this time, should Contact Undergraduate Admissions for special consideration.
