The University of North Carolina at Asheville is a co-educational, four year, state supported undergraduate institution. We have a strong liberal arts curriculum with numerous applied and career-related programs. UNC Asheville offers more than 30 different academic majors.
Applications cannot be reviewed until all documents are received. If high school and university transcripts and bank letters are not in English, certified English translations must be submitted. Currency figures must be in U.S. equivalents. Students whose native language is English must submit an SAT I or ACT score instead of the TOEFL. All test scores must be sent to UNC Asheville directly from the testing service to be considered official. Student copies and/or photocopies cannot be accepted.
