The excitement of starting your first semester in college can be overwhelming! So much so that it can be easy to miss some important steps leading up to your first day of class. At UNCG we want our incoming students to be Spartan Set by August 1st to avoid any disruptions to your Fall semester. Get these items checked off and arrive on campus this fall SPARTAN SET!
SUBMIT IMMUNIZATION RECORDS
The state of North Carolina mandates that all students who live on campus and/or take more than four credit hours of weekday, on-campus courses are required to submit immunization records to the university. You can submit records via the Student Health Services patient portal. SHS also offers immunizations on site.
WAIVE OR ENROLL IN STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE
The UNC System requires students who meet certain criteria to carry health insurance. UNCG offers the Student Blue plan from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. Two to three days after you register for classes, you should receive a notification from Student Blue to your UNCG email that you can access the portal (studentbluenc.com/uncg) to either enroll in the plan or – if you have qualifying alternate insurance – waive coverage. Please note, inaction will result in eventual default enrollment in the plan, including responsibility for the cost of the policy.
PROVIDE US WITH YOUR FINAL TRANSCRIPTS
In the excitement of high school graduation and entering college, it’s easy to forget about sending us your final transcripts. Nevertheless, admission to UNCG is contingent on us receiving them. You may provide us with your official, final high school transcripts, official AP or IB scores, and any college transcripts directly from the accrediting institution in one of the following ways:
- Hand-delivered to the UNCG Office of Undergraduate Admissions
- Sent to us electronically
- Mailed to UNCG Office of Undergraduate Admissions, P.O. Box 26170, Greensboro, NC 27402-6170
PAY YOUR BILL
UNCG assesses for tuition and fees each semester. Bills are sent electronically, with most students notified of fall semester bills in early July via their UNCG email. UNCGenie is where you can view and pay your bill and, if needed, designate an authorized user to make payments on your behalf. To make paying for college more manageable, UNCG offers an interest-free payment plan that allows for five, four, or three installments, depending on when you enroll. You’ll learn more about your bill and payment options at orientation.
