Undergraduate Admissions

Early College High School Graduates

North Carolina Cooperative Innovative High Schools

Applicants from North Carolina Cooperative Innovative High Schools (CIHS) receive special consideration in the admission review for UNC system universities based on North Carolina law. According to House Bill 97 Section 11.16.(a) “any student who graduated from a cooperative innovative high school program with an associate degree and who applies for admission to the constituent institution has the option of being considered for admission as a freshman or as a transfer student.” Download the list of Cooperative Innovative High School Programs by following the link and clicking on the CIHS list to see if your early college high school qualifies. 

Applying as an Early College Graduate

At UNC Pembroke, Early College/North Carolina Cooperative Innovative High School graduates have the option to apply as a first-year freshman or as a transfer student.  If you chose to apply as a first-year freshman, admissions decisions are made on the basis of: completing your minimum high school course requirements; overall weighted grade point average and class rank; plus SAT and/or ACT scores. Please refer to our Freshman Admission Requirements for more information. If you choose to apply as a transfer student, admissions decisions are made on the basis of the total number of transferable college credits and overall transfer GPA. Please refer to our Transfer Admissions Requirements for more information.   

Regardless of which option you choose, we ask you to forward us your official high school transcript, official college transcript, and official ACT/SAT test scores. Note: ACT/SAT scores are not used to make an admission decision for a NC early college graduate with an Associate in Art or Associate in Science degree applying as a transfer student. To ensure your eligibility for housing, merit scholarships and first-year freshman programs, you will be listed as a first-year student with transfer college credit. However, your actual classification will be determined by the total amount of transferable semester hours of credit. Students at UNC Pembroke are classified according to the number of semester hours they’ve earned in keeping with the following table:

Less than 30 hours - Freshman 60 to 89 hours - Junior
30 to 59 hours - Sophomore 90 to graduation - Senior

For more information regarding transfer credits, please refer to Transferring Credits or contact Undergraduate Admissions at 800.949.UNCP (8627) or send an email to admissions@uncp.edu

Exercise and Sport Science

Student Hometown

Lumberton, North Carolina



I am a sophomore studying Exercise and Sport Science with a concentration in Health Promotions and a minor in Spanish. I plan on pursuing graduate school to become an Occupational Therapist. I have the privilege of being a member of the Honors College as well as the secretary of the Honors Student Council, a Student Ambassador, and a member of the Lambda Sigma Sophomore Society. I love being involved on campus and also participate in the Heath Careers Club, The Literacy Commons, CRU Bible Study and Berea Campus Outreach.


Why did you choose to attend UNCP?

When searching for a college, I honestly had dreams of a big school in a big city but decided to stay close to home. I knew UNCP was a great school, but at the time it was not what I had my sights set on, nor did I imagine just how much it has to offer. Soon after visiting campus and being accepted into the honors college program my dreams changed. Every day I fell more and more in love with this University. The small class size and accessibility of the professors has been the catalyst of my success and scholastic confidence. Still being close to home but staying on campus has given me the best of both worlds. I cannot imagine spending these four years anywhere else but here. Being Brave was the best decision for me!


What do you like best about UNCP?

There are too many things I like best about UNCP. I honestly do not believe I would be as involved or successful had it not been for the size. The phrase “where learning gets personal” could not be more perfect. The entire faculty is so personable. I would never want to be just another number and here, my professors know me by name. The opportunities that this alone creates are many. As a resident of Robeson County I also appreciate the strong tie the University has to its heritage. UNC Pembroke is the North Carolina’s best kept secret. It is the total college package!

How do I make a complaint about distance education?

The US Department of Education’s “Program Integrity” regulation requires higher education institutions to comply with state approval or licensure requirements in each state where distance education is delivered.  Consistent with this US DOE mandate, a student has the right to file a complaint against an institution if he or she feels that these requirements are not being followed.  Therefore, institutions are required to provide students with the appropriate contact information for filing complaints.  To file a complaint about the University of North Carolina at Pembroke’s distance education program, you may contact the appropriate agency in your home state: State Agencies Handling Distance Learning Complaints
For complaints regarding a violation of accreditation policies, you may contact the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges  (SACSCOC).  For such a complaint, you must use the appropriate SACS complaint form Commission’s Complaint Form (PDF), and send two print copies to:  President, SACSCOC. 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097.  Students are required to familiarize themselves thoroughly with the UNC Pembroke Student Handbook and UNCP catalog which both include campus policies for handling complaints.  You are expected to exhaust these internal options before escalating your complaint to the state or accrediting agency.
