Hi! I am having a slight dilemma and would appreciate any info that people are willing to give. I guess I should start off by saying that I am currently a community college sophomore in Arizona and looking to transfer to UNC Charlotte in the spring. As of right now, my GPA isn't too hot. I have a 2.495. I totally messed up my Freshmen year at the University of Arizona, but I have showed major improvement since. Anywho, I know the minimum transfer requirement is a 2.0, and my high school transcripts definitely meet the minimum freshman requirements (which I'm not sure they'll really look at in my case). So basically, do I even have a chance and should I even bother applying? Any input is appreciated

Don't ask this collection of yokels, call the school!! Before we moved here to NC we visited and stopped in at UNCC and had a very informative meeting with an admissions counselor. You can likely accomplish the same over the phone. We have been here now for 2 years and our son has been attending community college and will soon (we hope) transfer to UNCC with in-state tuition.

I have no idea what the admissions requirements are for students trying to transfer from out of state. Typically it is harder to get admitted from out of state than in state. You are wise to ask, just better to ask the people who actually make the decision.

As a former graduate of UNCC, I would suggest that you call the school ASAP. They are always adjusting admissions criteria and you'll want to make sure that not only does your GPA meets the requirement but that your classes a transfer too. I transferred from a private university in the area and only 27 credits of my 30 credits from Freshman Year transferred over. I only had to make up 1 class, but it could have been worse.

Visit the site when you can: www.uncc.edu

I would suggest you enroll for a semester at CPCC to be eligible for in-state tuition when you do transfer to UNCC.

Check to see which classes are transferable too. Call admissions with any questions you may have. I am a recent UNCC graduate as well.
