Transfer Students

We welcome your interest in transferring to UNC. Let us work with you to make the application process as smooth as possible.

You’re considered a transfer student if you have attended a post-secondary institution after graduating from high-school. You’re a strong candidate for admission as a transfer student if you have:

  • 30 or more transferable credits
  • 2.4 cumulative GPA from all schools attended

The Office of Admissions reviews applications on a rolling basis, which means you will receive an admission decision two to three weeks after submitting your application and all supporting documents. To graduate with a bachelor’s degree from UNC, which requires 120 semester credit hours, you must complete a minimum of 30 credit hours through UNC.

Apply

To apply to UNC, you’ll need to submit the following:

1

A completed UNC application

2

$45 application fee (nonrefundable, payable by credit card or debit card)

3

Submit all official college transcripts from all institutions attended

4

Your official high school transcript and ACT/SAT scores (which should be sent directly to UNC from your high school)

Students transferring fewer than 30 credit hours are required to submit high school transcripts
