Apply for Financial Aid

Apply for financial aid by filing your FAFSA. Our priority aid deadline is December 1, but we award aid until the beginning of the semester. If you plan to apply for financial aid, do it as early as possible for the best packaging. Our Financial Aid Office can provide more information about our process.

Apply for housing

If you’re planning to live on campus, apply for housing early for your best chance at your choice residence hall. Explore all our housing options and review the housing application process through Housing and Residence Life.

Complete health requirements

Before you begin classes, you must complete health forms (including immunization verification and medical history) and provide proof of insurance. You may opt to purchase a student health insurance policy instead.

Schedule a registration meeting

As a transfer 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 to set up an appointment. We recommend completing Advising and Registration by Appointment before attending orientation. More information about how to prepare for and schedule this meeting is available on the Students First website

Register for orientation

Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR) for transfer students is a one-day program held before classes begin.

SOAR is not canceled and will transition to a virtual format in June and in-person program in August. The June Virtual SOAR program will be required for all new students where students will participate in virtual small groups, enroll in an online course, and review all of the presentations and orientation materials. Parents & families will also participate in virtual SOAR sessions and have access to all of the presentations and orientation materials.

Foreign Language Placement Examination

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.

If you have studied French, German, or Spanish in high school, please register for and complete the Additional Language Placement Diagnostic before your SOAR session. 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 for other languages can be found on this website

Send final grades

If you are currently taking classes, have your official final transcripts sent to the Office of Admissions as soon as your final grades (and degree, if applicable) post to your record. Submit all official documents by July 15 for fall admission (Dec. 21 for spring). Effective March 17, 2020, applicants may submit transcripts electronically to

Pay your tuition

Students are billed electronically each semester for tuition, fees, room, and board (if applicable). Billing schedules and payment deadlines will be available at SOAR and online. Please note that bills are sent to you (not your parents), so be sure to check your iSpartan (UNCG email) account often.
