Freshman Applicant Instruction Checklist

Please remember the earlier you complete your application the earlier you will receive your admissions decision
You are considered a freshman applicant if you are a current senior student in high school or if you have graduated high school already, but have not previously attended any college or university since your high school graduation. All early college high school students will need to complete the freshman application.
  1. Application Fee - $50 ( Please be sure to call the Cashier's Office at 919.530.6209 or mail it in to the address below).
  2. Official Transcript - Request to have your official high school transcript sent directly to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Transcripts of home school students must be notarized as authentic in order to be considered official. If you have earned a GED, please refer to our website for transfer admissions requirements. No transcripts will be accepted from the applicant unless official and sealed. If you have been dual-enrolled in any college while in high school, please have the college send an official transcript of work completed directly to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
  3. Standardized Test Scores - If not reported on your official high school transcript, you must submit SAT or ACT (must include the writing portion) scores directly from either the College Board or ACT. A score submitted from a web site is NOT official.
  4. Residency - If you are a North Carolina resident, please complete the residency questions within the application. This is required to be considered for the in-state tuition benefit. If you do not provide the information requested where applicable, you may be designated out-of-state and required to complete and submit additional forms.
