save your space (do this first!)

When you log in to SpartanLink, you’ll be prompted to accept our offer of admission. This is your first step to lock in your seat at UNCG.

Activate your accounts

Check your email for your university ID, which will be sent to your personal email account 48 hours after your decision is released. Wait 1-2 business days after you have confirmed your intent to enroll, then you can take the following steps to create the accounts you’ll need as a UNCG student.

  1. Activate your accounts at Computer Accounts Activation. This process creates your default UNCG Login account, including your UNCG username.
  2. Wait 1-2 hours for account activation.
  3. Reset your passwordBefore starting to use your accounts, you must first reset your password. You can do this after your accounts are ready (1-2 hours after account activation form is submitted). 


UNCGenie is the portal you’ll use to register for classes, pay your tuition and fees, and take care of other university-related business. You will need your University ID and PIN to log in to UNCGenie. (Your University ID is sent in an email after you confirm your admission. You’ll need to create your PIN before you can log in.)


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.

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. At SOAR, you will take care of important business like getting your SpartanCard and parking pass. Your registration should be completed prior to orientation through a separate process called Advising and Registration by Appointment.

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).

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.

Catch the Spartan Spirit

Congratulations, you’re officially a Spartan! Your college experience should be exciting and challenging, and we want you to have the best possible experience. Mark your calendar for NAV1GATE, our new student convocation and campus welcome tradition. Then get plugged in to life on campus through student groups and events that will make your time at UNCG unforgettable.
