Freshman Application Procedures

Freshman applicants need to submit the following: 

Academic Records

Official secondary school (high school) transcripts in your native language with a literal English translation.  If you cannot have an original academic record sent from the institution, the registrar or principal of the original issuing institution may send a photocopy and certify that it is a true copy of the original. This is done by placing the institution’s official stamp or seal and his/her signature on it after photocopying.  Faxed or scanned copies are not acceptable. 

If you are completing your high school education at the time of applying to UNCG, you must send a final official transcript and a certified copy of your diploma, certificate, or examination results prior to your enrollment at UNCG.

Note:  Some students may receive university transfer credit for certain academic work completed at the secondary (high school) level.  Credit may be considered for International Baccalaureate Higher Level examination results or College Board SAT Subject tests.  Information is at: http://web.uncg.edu/reg/Bulletin/Current/Default.aspx
University transfer credit may be considered for certain examination results, such as Advanced (A-levels).
