Requirements

You're on the right track to being a 49er!

International transfer students will need to submit the following to be reviewed for admission at UNC Charlotte.

1. Application and Application Fee of $80
2. Proof of English ability

We require all applicants whose first language is not English to adequately demonstrate English competency as a part of the application process. Please read our Proof of English Proficiency for methods through which students may demonstrate competency. 

3. Official Transcripts and Foreign Credential Evaluation of Transfer Credit
  • Foreign Universities and Colleges - UNC Charlotte does not process international college transcripts. Submit an official course-by-course credential evaluation instead. Please send your official foreign transcripts to any NACES accredited agency. Once the review is completed, they will submit the credential evaluation report on your behalf directly to our office. We recommend using IEEEducational PerspectivesECE, or SPANTRAN for the evaluation. 
  • U.S. Colleges - Submit an official transcript for every school you have attended. You do not need a credential evaluation for U.S. schools.
  • Make sure to submit transcripts and/or credential evaluation from all attended colleges and universities when applying. If you are still taking classes, we ask you to submit an updated final transcript or a credential evaluation report prior to your enrollment at UNC Charlotte.
4. Proof of Secondary School Graduation
  • Foreign High School – submit an official diploma/graduation certificate or its equivalency verifying completion of your secondary degree studies. If original documents are in the foreign language, an additional official English translation will be required. See our Credentials Required by Country for more information.
  • U.S. or U.S. Regionally Accredited High School – submit an official high school transcript with the graduation date posted on it.
