Office of Undergraduate Admissions

1 University Drive

P.O.Box 1510

Pembroke, NC 28372

Please note: If you apply via CFNC.org, you still need to set up a MyUNCP account.

We offer rolling admission, so as soon as your application is complete we will review your credentials and get a decision to you.

We do encourage you to apply early for priority consideration for available scholarships and admission to Maynor Honors College

Residency Determination

The NC Residency Determination Service (RDS) determines residency for tuition purposes for all UNC System universities. If you are an undergraduate student applying for admission and claiming in-state residency for tuition purposes, you must visit NCresidency.org to verify your residency.

Please note that the process could take up to 25 days to complete, so starting early is in your best interest.

If you have already completed the residency verification process and obtained your Residency Certification Number (RCN), you can enter your RCN when filling out your application. If you do not already have your RCH, you may submit your application and then come back and enter your RCN once you have it. It is your responsibility to complete the Residency Determination Process in a timely manner.
