Admission to the University
UNCG seeks men and women with ability, character, motivation, and the intellectual potential to meet UNCG standards of performance. UNCG’s admission decision is based upon an evaluation of the applicant’s secondary school record and/or college record, including the overall grade point average, essay, and SAT or ACT scores. These factors are used to determine the applicant’s probability of success at UNCG.
This policy applies to the admission of freshmen and transfer students. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is fully committed to equality of educational opportunity and does not discriminate against applicants, students, or employees based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, or disability. This commitment is in keeping with Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 and Section 504, Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the ADA of 1990, and other applicable federal and state laws. The Affirmative Action Officer, UNCG, PO Box 26170, Greensboro, NC 27402-6170, (336-334-5009), is responsible for coordinating compliance and investigating complaints.
For traditional freshman and transfer applicants, interviews are not used as criteria for admission. Individual appointments for information purposes may be arranged by contacting the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, 336/334-5243, in advance of the date a campus visit is planned.
Adult students who do not meet regular admission requirements may be considered for admission through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
Overenrollment or state budgetary constraints may require the restriction of admission during a given year or the adjustment of minimum requirements or application deadlines.
