If you received college credit, please send an official transcript from the college prior to orientation. Please note that your high school transcript is not enough to grant college credit. Additionally, if you have taken any AP, CLEP or IB test, please submit your official test scores to Undergraduate Admissions for evaluation. For information concerning college credit, please contact the Admissions office at 910.521.6262.
If you are a new student and you have not yet applied for in-state residency through the state-required Residency Determination Service electronic interview, www.ncresidency.org, please do so as soon as possible. This application will help to ensure that you receive the correct billing charges from the university. Upon completion, students will receive a Residency Certification Number (RCN). The RCN is an identifier tying your information to your residency application; this number alone does not mean you have received an eligibility determination. Please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 910.521.6262 with any questions.
Once your residency application has been reviewed, you will receive an email (and text if you opt-in) from the Residency Determination Service (RDS) regarding the determination (in-state or out-of-state) or the status, i.e., need more information from you. If you receive an out-of-state determination and you do not agree with it, you may request a reconsideration of your residency decision from RDS up to three times within a 90-day period. For more information, call toll-free 844.319.3640.
It is the student’s responsibility to have the above completed by the following dates:

AlcoholEdu for College & Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates Requirement
As part of our commitment to overall campus wellness, AlcoholEdu for College and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates are comprehensive prevention programs that all newly enrolled students must complete. Having new students complete AlcoholEdu for College and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates is how UNCP meets federal requirements for quality education (i.e., Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Community Act, Title IV from the U.S. Department of Education and Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act PL 103-322). These prevention programs help ensure that all students on and off campus are given resources to enhance their lives—whether fostering personal life skills or helping students understand how they might help friends, family members, or peers.
AlcoholEdu for College and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates are online learning modules hosted through Everfi. These learning modules are non-opinionated, science-based alcohol abuse and sexual assault prevention courses.
You will receive an email at the beginning of the semester from our Everfi Coordinator, Kathryn Kelly. The email will announce that you may begin AlcoholEdu for College and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates. The courses have two sections, both of which must be completed to fulfill this requirement and register for future classes at UNCP. Deadlines for completion will be included in the email from the Everfi Coordinator.
AlcoholEdu for College and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates both take approximately 2-3 hours to complete, and we recommend that you take the courses in multiple sittings. A grade of 70 or higher is required for successful completion of AlcoholEdu for College; if you do not receive at least a 70, you may return to the course and complete a retest. Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates does not require a passing score, but completion of all course modules is required.
