Due to the impact of COVID-19 on standardized test availability and the likelihood of additional testing date cancellations the UNC Board of Governors has waived the standardized test requirement for first-year students applying for admissions for Spring 2021, Summer 2021, and Fall 2021 to all UNC System Institutions. On May 27, 2021, the UNC Board of Governors voted to extend the current testing waiver for students applying for admission in Spring 2022, Summer 2022, and Fall 2022.
Students will have the option to submit an ACT or SAT test score, but test scores will not be required for admission decisions. Those who do not submit a standardized test score will need to meet the minimum weighted GPA of 2.5 to be considered for undergraduate admission.NC College InformationPlease see the attached document for information regarding Fall 2022 admission guidelines, ACT test code, and open house/visit information for NC Colleges.
