UNCG encourages qualified adult students to complete their undergraduate degrees.
Persons who have been away from formal school for at least 12 consecutive months may apply as nontraditional adult students. They must have completed high school or earned a GED. If their graduation from high school occurred in 1988 or later, they must fulfill Minimum Admissions Requirements. Adult students may be admitted for full-time coursework, or may have their hours limited to ensure academic success. An interview with an Admissions advisor may be required.
To apply for acceptance as a nontraditional adult student, an applicant must submit the following:
1. Complete the UNCG application form and return it to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions with the application fee.
2. Submit official transcripts from the secondary school attended (and/or General Educational Development equivalency scores) and from any post-secondary institutions attended, including summer school and extension.
3. Submit discharge papers (DD 214) from the armed services if applicable.
Applicants will be notified of action taken as soon as possible. Admitted students should confirm their intention to enroll by completing the "intent to enroll" card and returning it to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions within four weeks from the date of acceptance if possible. Confirmation of late acceptance must be made by the deadline for registration. Before enrolling, students must submit a medical report form (found in the UNCG Enrollment Handbook) to the UNCG Student Health Services in Gove Health Center.
