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.

UNCG defines domestic applicants as U.S. citizens, naturalized citizens, U.S. dual citizenship, Lawful Permanent Residents, pending permanent residents (aka green card), DACA, political asylees, or refugees. Domestic freshman or transfer students with non-U.S. transcripts must also have a NACES ® course-by-course evaluation report submitted.

If you are not a domestic applicant as defined above, please connect with the International Recruitment and Admissions Office for your next steps as an international applicant.
