New Student Next Steps


Intent to Enroll

Access your application portal to complete the Intent to Enroll form. Doing so reserves your spot in your program and allows you to setup your UNCG computing account. After completing the Intent to Enroll form, allow up to 24 hours before moving on to step two.


Computing Accounts

Get and stay connected! Use your 9-digit Student ID  located within your acceptance letter to activate your computing account (you can log in to your application portal to view your letter). This gives you access to UNCG’s wireless network, Canvas, your UNCG email account, Microsoft 365, and other campus supported software. Wait 1-2 hours to receive your username via email. The email will also give you instructions to finalize your account activation.


Student Portal (UNCGenie)

UNCGenie allows you to view & accept financial aid, update your contact information, pay tuition & fees, view your assigned advisor, register for classes, view grades, order transcripts, and tend to all other academic matters. Visit the Get My PIN page to activate UNCGenie. After you’ve set your PIN, visit UNCGenie to complete this step.


Immunization records

You must turn in your immunization records. Failure to do so will cause you to be dropped from all classes. This is not required for online students.



You will receive information from your program about registration. Visit the Registrar’s website for the latest Registration Calendar.


Health insurance

If you are an eligible student, you are automatically enrolled in and billed for the UNCG Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). If you have and wish to use your own health insurance, you must request a waiver. Visit the Student Health Services website for more information.


Pay your bill

You will receive an eBill from the Cashiers and Student Accounts Office. Do not ignore this bill. Students with outstanding balances will be dropped from courses. If you feel there is an error, ask the Cashiers office staff in 151 Mossman. You can pay your bill at the Cashiers office or online through UNCGenie. Information on scholarships, financial support and graduate aid can be found on our Financial Information page
