- Immigration Documents
After you are admitted to UNC we will issue your I-20 that you will need to obtain your student visa. We will mail your I-20 along with your admission letter to the address you provided on your application. The I-20 will contain your SEVIS number that you will need to pay your SEVIS fee. Afterwards you will be able to schedule your visa appointment.

Students transferring from another US institution will be mailed a SEVIS transfer form along with their admission letter. Your international advisor at your current institution will need to complete the form in order to transfer your SEVIS record to UNC.
- Transfer Credit
We will accept up to 90 hours of transfer credit if your university is recognized by the Ministry of Education in your home country, or accredited by one of the US regional accrediting bodies. Please refer to the Office of the Registrar for information about the transfer credit process and policies, including what documents you will need to submit.

They will provide pre-departure and arrival information as well as orientation, immigration, academic, cultural and educational support during your studies at UNC.
