Admitted Transfer Checklist | UNC Greensboro Undergraduate Admissions

Congratulations on your acceptance to UNC Greensboro! Please see below for more information about next steps to enroll at UNCG.

Save your space (do this first!)

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

Claim your accounts

Setting up your university accounts will give you access to all the systems UNCG students need to conduct their day-to-day business. From your UNCG email address to registering for classes to accessing online courses, you’ll need to pay attention to this important step! Here are directions for claiming your university accounts.

Apply for Financial Aid

Apply for financial aid by filing your FAFSA. Our priority aid deadline is January 15th, 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 Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships can provide more information about our process.

Apply for housing

Make plans to apply for housing early for your best chance at your preferred residence hall. Fall housing applications go live on February 15. Before then, get familiar with our housing options and review the housing application process through Housing and Residence Life.

Submit immunization requirements

Complete your immunization forms and submit medical history forms via the Student Health Services portal. Immunization records are required by law within 30 days of course registration, so it’s essential you do this to remain enrolled. *Here’s a video with step-by-step instructions.* The UNCG Immunizations office is open Monday – Friday 8 am until 5 pm. The office is located on the second floor of the Anna M. Gove Student Health Center. Find Immunization Forms on the Student Health Center website.

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. 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

Make Your Orientation Reservation

Spartan Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR) is UNCG’s required new student orientation. SOAR is an interactive program designed to support students and their families as they transition into a new academic environment. SOAR reservations begin February 15 for Fall. (SOAR reservations begin November 2 for Spring and February 15 for Summer).

Submit proof of health insurance

Approximately 2-3 days after registration, go to the StudentBlue insurance portal and complete the enrollment process for the student insurance plan OR complete the waiver process to use your own health plan and have the student insurance premium removed from your account. If you don’t waive the student insurance, UNCG will assume you want it and you will be charged.

Complete the Foreign Language Placement Exam

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, Latin, or Spanish in high school or college, please register for and complete the Additional Language Placement Diagnostic. 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 (plus any AP, CLEP, or IB score reports) sent as soon as possible after class ends and no later than July 15 for Fall. (Spring and Summer deadline is two weeks prior to the start of the semester.) If you are finishing your degree prior to transferring, be sure your final transcript reflects your degree earned. Send transcripts to UNCG Undergraduate Admissions, P.O. Box 26170, Greensboro, NC 27402-6170.

Watch for your bill

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

Take your student ID photo

Submit your own photo for your SpartanCard using the SpartanCard Center website.

Catch the Spartan spirit 

Your time in college should be exciting and challenging, and we want you to have the best possible experience. Mark your calendar for new student welcome programs. Then get plugged in to life on campus through student groups and events that will make your time at UNCG unforgettable.
