Admission Requirements for Programs

Baccalaureate Programs

Additional requirements beyond acceptance into UNC Charlotte may be required for particular baccalaureate program majors.  See the individual department and program listings for details. 

Second Baccalaureate Degree

Students who have earned a bachelor’s degree from UNC Charlotte and wish to earn a second bachelor’s degree should apply for admission through the Office of the Registrar.  Students who have earned a bachelor’s degree from a college or university accredited by an accepted accrediting body other than UNC Charlotte should apply through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.  The University automatically waives the General Education requirements for each second degree student.  Students may apply for admission to a program leading to a second degree of the same level if the following requirements are met:

  1. A completed application must be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions in accordance with the published application dates.
  2. The major field selected must be different from that of the first degree.
  3. The degree sought must be different from the first when that degree was granted by UNC Charlotte.
  4. The applicant must meet the requirements for acceptance into the selected field.

Undergraduate Certificate Programs

Students who wish to apply for undergraduate certificate programs should consult the Office of Undergraduate Admissions website.  If a student has already received a bachelor’s degree, he/she must meet second baccalaureate degree admissions requirements.  Students who have not received a bachelor’s degree and have attended a college or university must meet transfer admissions requirements.  Students with a high school diploma who have not attended a college or university must meet freshman requirements.  Some certificate programs may have additional requirements.  See the individual certificate listing for details.
