Residency

Your residency for tuition purposes determines your in-state or out-of-state status and may impact your admission, tuition, scholarship or financial aid eligibility. North Carolina residency for tuition purposes is governed by North Carolina state law.  More information about North Carolina residency for tuition purposes can be found on the CFNC Residency Determination Service website.

Please ensure your residency status remains active. It is the student’s responsibility to notify our office of any change in classification. If your residency is set to expire before the start of your program, you must complete a residency reclassification application with the Residency Determination Services (RDS) at www.ncresidency.org. Please email us at: gradresidency@uncg.edu once you have completed a reclassification application so that we can update your status in our system

Outside NC Tuition – if you are enrolled in an online program at UNC Greensboro but live outside North Carolina, you may be eligible to receive a special tuition rate “Outside NC” (ONNC). To be eligible for this rate, you must already have an official RDS determination. The ONNC attribute will be added to your record after admission. Please notify our office of any changes to your RDS classification.

Official Transcripts/Credential Evaluation

Final official transcripts are required for all newly enrolled students. 

Final official credential evaluations are required for newly enrolled students who have earned a degree from an institution outside of the US. This requirement must be completed when applying to your graduate program. The Graduate School accepts course-by-course evaluation reports from any National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES®) service.

For a transcript to be considered official, it must be sent directly from the issuing college or university by US mail, electronic submission, or hand-delivered in a sealed envelope. The transcript must reflect degree(s) awarded and/or completed coursework and final grades. Note: in-progress coursework and student-uploaded transcripts are not considered official regardless of how they were obtained. If the transcript was issued to you and then opened and uploaded to your account during the application process, this is not considered official.  

Please have your institution send official, electronic transcripts to gradinquiry@uncg.edu.

Official transcripts can be mailed to the address below:

UNC Greensboro Graduate School
270 Mossman Building
1202 Spring Garden Street
Greensboro, NC 27412
