  • Official Transcript

Applicants must have a GPA of 2.5 or higher on a US 4.0 scale to be considered for admission. Transcripts from US high schools or American schools outside the US must be official, listing both courses and grades.

Transcripts from schools outside the US must be original or certified true copies, with original signatures on all transcripts and English translations. A certified true copy is one that bears an original signature of the registrar or other designated school official, an original impression of the institution's seal, or signature/seal of the examining board.

Foreign transcripts may be sent directly from a certified translation service or from secondary school. Any transcripts delivered by the applicant will not be considered official unless they are sealed. Records should list subjects studied each year and the mark or grade or proficiency earned in each.

If you completed secondary school in a country where a secondary school leaving examination (GCE, GCSE, CXC, French Baccalaureate, Abitur, etc.) is administered, you must provide an original or certified true copy of the results or expected results.

An SAT Reasoning Test critical reading score of 490 or higher, or an ACT minimum score of 20 on the Reading subsection may be submitted in lieu of other English proficiency tests. The SAT/ACT is not required for international admissions.

International students who attended a US high school for at least two years and also graduated from a US high school must present acceptable SAT or ACT scores when sent to us electronically by the testing agency. (SAT code 5907 and ACT code 3174).

Fees and funding

Financing a UNCW education may seem like a challenging responsibility, so the University tries to be accessible to all who are granted admission. UNCW meets this through need-blind admissions and through financial aid.

Financial assistance from UNCW for international students is extremely limited, since the out-of-state tuition at UNCW is lower than at many comparable institutions. As such, it is urged that international students look for outside sources of funding to help lower costs.

Undergraduate Scholarships Freshman - $5,000 / year SAT 1300 or higher or ACT 30 or higher (automatically received)

Essay submitted once admitted $2,500 / year

Ambassador Scholarship (applied after their first year of studies) - up $2,000 / year

Teaching assistantships for Postgraduate students, maximum of $11,000 / year (working 20 hours per week)
