We Waive Application Fees!

Yes! We waive application fees for service members and veterans.

But that’s not all, we also provide priority registration for ALL GI Bill® users, veterans and service members.

  1. Complete and submit your online application.

  1. Pay the $75 application fee or submit an approved fee waiver.

  2. Submit an official high school transcript.

  • High school transcripts must be mailed directly from the high school. Schools using Naviance, Scribbles or CFNC may submit electronic transcripts through those electronic delivery systems. If you attended a high school outside the U.S., please refer to our International Admissions information for submission guidelines.

  1. Submit one required essay.

  • If you are applying using the Common App, the essay prompts are located within the application and must be submitted when you apply. You may choose from these Common App essay prompts.
  • If you are applying by CFNC or the Future 49er Application, choose from one of these essay prompts. It is preferred that you upload it to the Future 49er Portal in the "Upload Materials" section. If you experience any issues uploading it in your portal, you may email it to admissions@uncc.Edu.

  • Review this page for information on how your essay will be used in the admission review process.

The following are OPTIONAL for the current application cycle and due by the document submission deadline.

We will consider many factors about your academic background, opportunities, accomplishments and activities - much of which is gathered from your application, transcript and essay(s). You can decide to submit standardized test scores if you think they add value to our review, or you can choose not to submit them if you want us to focus more intently on your high school record and other supporting documents.

  1. SAT or ACT Test Scores

  1. Personal Statements or Recommendation Letters

  • While applicants are not required to submit additional materials beyond the application, high school transcript, and essay, we understand that some students may wish to submit supporting documentation such as letters of recommendation, personal statements, etc.
  • To ensure that any supporting documentation is received in time for review, it would be most helpful to have those documents submitted within two weeks of the application deadline. These documents may be uploaded to the Future 49er Portal under the "Upload Materials" section.
  1. Joint Service Transcript

  • Register for a JST account.
  • Click on the 'Transcripts' tab at the top of the page, then click the 'Official Transcript Request' tab.
  • Type in the institute name or any part of the name and click 'search' or hit the enter key.
    (Hint: the more unique the search the easier it will be to find in the results list.)
    For example instead of typing in the 'Some Name University' you could type in 'Some Name'. You may need to scroll through the entire list to ensure you have the correct location.
  • Verify delivery method.

Please check your Future 49er Portal to ensure all documents have been received. The portal is updated in real-time.
