SpartanLink is a portal used by UNCG Undergraduate Admissions to provide information and messages to prospective students, applicants, and admitted students. You may opt to create an account in SpartanLink when you want to request more information about UNCG Admissions, when you want to register for an event or tour, or when you are ready to apply for admission.
