Steps to Get Started


apply-now  Step #1: Apply for Readmission

Get started by completing the 49er Finish readmit application through the NEW Welcome Back Niner portal. As a perk of the 49er Finish Program, we waive the $75 readmission fee. To complete your application you must list a major. You can view all undergraduate majors and minors offered at UNC Charlotte. If you need assistance in choosing a major, please contact Aly Moore, the 49er Finish Coordinator. 

If you have attended any institutions since leaving UNC Charlotte, you will need to submit an official transcript from each institution you have attended to the following address: Office of the Registrar, King Building, 9201 University City Blvd, Charlotte, NC 28223. Please note that transcripts need to be submitted to the Office of the Registrar and not to Undergraduate Admissions.

Processing of your application takes approximately 4 weeks. Once a readmission decision is made, you will receive correspondence from the Office of the Registrar to the email address you provided on the application.


Please note that deadlines are subject to change. Check the Office of the Registrar's readmission page for most up-to-date dates.
