- Social Security numbers are required solely to help identify students' records within our information processing system.
- Submit the application prior to the following priority deadlines: July 15 - Fall Semester; December 1 - Spring Semester; May 15 - Summer I Session; and June 15 - Summer II Session.
- Transcripts - Official transcripts of all previous academic work must be sent to the university. (To be official, a transcript must display the school seal and be mailed directly from the high school or college to the admissions office.) Faxed copies will be accepted as official if received from the appropriate school.
- Beginning freshmen should request that their high school forward an official and complete high school transcript to the admissions office. This transcript should indicate the courses in progress, North Carolina Competency Test scores (if applicable), rank in class, and date (or expected date) of graduation. A final transcript must be sent at the completion of the senior year. High School seniors who have taken classes at a college/university need to send all college transcripts to Admissions.
- Transfer students must have official transcripts mailed from each college and high school previously attended. A university questionnaire should be submitted to the appropriate dean of the last institution attended with the request that it be forwarded to UNCP. Transfer students with less than 24 semester hours of transferrable course work must also meet freshman requirements.
- Adult special students are classified as enrichment/non-degree, nontraditional, second degree seeking, teacher certification, and transient. Nontraditional students must supply an official copy of their high school transcript and standardized test scores, if applicable. Second degree seeking and teacher certification students must have a copy of their college transcript indicating the date the baccalaureate degree was conferred. Transient students must complete a separate application. Contact the Office of Admissions for more information.
- Aptitude Tests - All freshmen-class candidates must submit scores from either the College Board (SAT I) or the American College Testing Program (ACT). To request your official SAT I results, write to: College Board, ATP, Box 592, Princeton, NJ 08514. (All public universities in North Carolina require scores for the writing section of the SAT or ACT. The writing section of the test is included with the SAT, but if you are taking the ACT you must make sure to register for the "ACT Plus Writing".)
North Carolina Residency
- Under North Carolina law, bona fide legal residents (domiciliaries) of North Carolina are eligible for a lower tuition rate than non-residents. Copies of the applicable law and of implementing institutional regulations are available for inspection in the Sampson-Livermore Library and may be examined upon request. In essence, the controlling North Carolina statute (G.S. 116-143.1) requires that "to qualify for in-state tuition a legal resident must have maintained his domicile in North Carolina for at least 12 months immediately prior to his classification as a resident for tuition purposes." Neither a foreign national nor an alien admitted on a student visa is eligible for the in-state tuition rate. An alien holding a visa which will permit permanent residence in the United States is subject to the same considerations as a citizen. If residence is questionable, completion of an application for residency may be required. Determinations of residency for tuition purposes are made based on a preponderance of the evidence relevant to intent to maintain legal residence.
- Military members and dependents stationed in North Carolina may be eligible for an in-state tuition waver. To be considered for this, the student must submit a military waiver form.
In addition to submitting the online application, international students from non-English speaking nations must submit an official copy of their high school and/or college transcripts translated into English. The following forms must accompany the transcript(s): affidavit of support, financial certification, official bank statement, educational supplement (which indicates the total number of years in school and any certificates or diplomas awarded), and evidence of proficiency in the English language. Scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) are required. Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT I) or American College Test (ACT) scores may be substituted for students born in non-English speaking countries but educated in a senior high school in the United States. The University of North Carolina at Pembroke is approved by the Immigration Naturalization Service as an institution for the attendance of students who possess the F-1 visa.
New students who plan to audit a course must complete an application in conjunction with a form indicating the approval of the appropriate professor(s) and Associate Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs.
Health Forms and Residence Halls
Prior to enrollment, a completed health form must be submitted to the Student Health Services Office by all students registered for nine or more semester hours. This application for admission does not reserve a residence hall room. A housing application will be forwarded to students upon acceptance to the university. Questions concerning housing should be directed to the Student Affairs Office at (910) 521-6226.
High School Transcripts
Most North Carolina public high schools now have the capability to electronically send official high school transcripts to all 110 North Carolina colleges and
universities through CFNC.org. We encourage you to visit your school counselor to verify coursework and grades prior to requesting an electronic transcript.
To send an electronic transcript, you must:
- Make sure you have entered the following information in your profile and/or CFNC.org online admission application:
- First and Last name - This must match your legal name (use the name that appears on your report card, or check with your high school counselor).
NC Student Number (formerly NC WISE Student ID) - is your North Carolina public high school student identifier number and is only applicable to
North Carolina High School students. Providing the NC Student Number is voluntary and if provided, will give you the opportunity to request your high school
- Current high school (or high school at time of graduation)
- Date of birth
- E-mail address
Be currently enrolled at or graduated from in 2013, a participating public high school in North Carolina that has converted from NC WISE to PowerSchool/HomeBase.
If you are not sure about your school's current status or statusat the time you graduated, check with your school counselor.
As of November 13, 2013, electronic transcripts for some schools are now being processed from NC DPI's new PowerSchool system. Please refer to the
list of schools spreadsheet to see if your school is in a district that has chosen to send from the new
PowerSchool system, or if your school is in a district that has chosen to send from the NC WISE system. The differences are described below.
PowerSchool: This means that currently enrolled students can now send electronic transcripts that contain their current student information from PowerSchool.
Please note there will be a temporary process change for electronic transcripts until later this academic year for students who graduated in summer 2013 or before. NC DPI is in the process of
migrating historical data from NC WISE to PowerSchool. If you graduated in summer 2013 or before, you will need to contact your high school directly to request a transcript.
NC WISE: This means that all currently enrolled students and former students can send electronic transcripts that contain their information from NC WISE. For currently enrolled seniors, please
note that transcripts from NC WISE do not include any courses in which you are currently enrolled (Fall 2013).
Over the next few weeks NC DPI is working to transition all remaining schools to the new PowerSchool system. Please check this message area and the list of schools spreadsheet (link above) for
the latest information.
If these conditions were met when you submitted your CFNC.org online application, you will then be presented with the option to request your high school transcript
be sent electronically to that institution.
If you submitted an online admission application through another website or university portal, we encourage you to request your high school transcript be sent
electronically to that institution from the CFNC Transcript Manager (located under the Apply tab → To College → Transcript Manager).
