Transfer Application Procedures

Transfer 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. 

Official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended. Transcripts must be in your native language with a literal English translation.  You must submit all transcripts, regardless of the number of classes taken, year you took the classes, or grades earned.  The International Programs Center at UNCG will review all international college/university coursework for possible transfer credit. 

To have coursework reviewed for specific UNCG transfer credit, university catalog descriptions for each course/class taken must be submitted. This is not required for admission. 

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).  You may inquire at ipc_adm@uncg.edu.
