Prospective Visions students may want to take one or more courses for a variety of reasons including personal enrichment, professional knowledge, or renewal of teacher licensure. Visions permits students to register for classes without being admitted to a particular program of study. Credits earned at UNCG through Visions are recorded in the University Registrar’s Office on an official transcript. <LEARN MORE>
Visions Advising Information
Effective with the 2007 Fall Semester, UNCG students in degree programs, who are taking 6 or more credit hours, are required to demonstrate proof of health insurance to avoid a health insurance premium being charged to their UNCG account.
For those without health insurance, UNCG has made available through a UNC consortium an illness and injury plan. While this plan is an option, students are free to purchase any verifiable health insurance plan of their choice.
Students receiving graduate assistantships will receive additional information about health insurance in their letter of appointment.
Health insurance is available to all students through the Student Health Center. The cost of the policy this year is $1,604, and it provides coverage from August 1, 2014 to July 31, 2015.
Visit the Student Health Center’s website for more information. From that website you also have the option of submitting your verification of existing insurance.
We offer different options that help you to find the most adequate way to come back to school. These are:
VISIONS: An opportunity for students to take courses without applying for a specific program of graduate study. No GRE required.
Greater Greensboro Consortium: Through this program students can take classes at other area colleges and universities while remaining a full time student at their primary institution.
Residency Status for Tuition Purposes: Check the Provost’s website if you have questions about your eligibility to be classified as a resident in North Carolina.
