Cadet Admissions Manual (CAM)

Before You Begin

Activate Your Student Banner Account

In order to complete several of the steps in the CAM, you will need to access your Student Banner account. 

If you have a problem with your Banner account, please contact the IT Service Desk at 706-864-1922.

Steps

Step 1: Pay Your Room Deposit and Submit Your Cadet Housing Agreement

Due Dates

  • Summer and fall semester room deposit confirmation: 1 May
  • Deadline for fall semester room deposit refund: 1 July
  • Deadline for spring semester room deposit refund: 20 November
  • Spring semester room deposit confirmation: 1 December

We cannot guarantee you space in the Corps of Cadets unless you pay your room deposit on time. Paying your room deposit is the first and most important step. The room deposit serves as your confirmation that you will attend UNG and reserves your room.

Paying the Room Deposit

The room deposit can be paid online via credit/debit card or paid with a check and mailed to:

Assistant Commandant's Office
ATTN: Cadet Housing Agreement/MLC Room 118
82 College Circle
Dahlonega, GA 30597

*If paying with check: Make the check payable to UNG and put your first, middle, last name and student ID on the memo line.

Submitting the Cadet Housing Agreement and Supporting Documents

Read the Cadet Housing Agreement below and fill out Page 9 along with supporting forms:

Email signed forms to cadethousing@ung.edu.

*Note: You are not required to pay the Confirmation of Acceptance or complete the Confirmation of Acceptance Form. The Cadet Room Deposit and Cadet Housing Agreement are your confirmation for participating in the Corps of Cadets.

Attending Summer Semester

If you attend summer classes and desire to live on campus, please contact the Assistant Commandant Office 706-864-1793. You must still fill out the Cadet Housing Agreement for the fall semester and submit it to cadethousing@ung.edu.

Attending Summer Language Institute

If you attend Summer Language Institute, your housing is coordinated through the Summer Language Institute Program. You must still fill out the Cadet Housing Agreement for the fall semester and submit it to cadethousing@ung.edu.

Important Note

If you decide not to attend UNG, you must cancel your Cadet Housing Agreement to receive a refund of your deposit. If you DO NOT cancel your Cadet Housing Agreement by 1 July for the fall semester and 1 December for the spring semester, your room deposit will not be refunded.

More importantly, if you do not cancel by the deadline, room charges will be billed to you even if you do not enroll.

To cancel, please contact the Assistant Commandant's Office:

Step 2: Register for New Student (NSO) or Transfer Student Orientation (TSO)

New Student Orientation (NSO) or Transfer Student Orientation (TSO) is required for all new students. Cadets will register for classes during Orientation.

  • New Student Orientation (NSO) is for new freshmen and is a two-day, one-night event during the summer for students enrolling in the fall semester. For students enrolling in a spring or summer semester it is a one day event.
    • Incoming Cadets who have been accepted for the fall term but cannot attend an earlier NSO session due to distance and travel expenses should sign up for the New Student Orientation scheduled for August 12th. Cadets who attend this NSO will be housed in Cadet housing overnight and will transition to FROG-in-processing on the second morning.
  • Transfer Student Orientation (TSO) is a one-day event for new transfer Cadets or non-traditional Cadets enrolling in the summer, fall, or spring semester.
  • Parent and Family Orientation (PFO) is a two-day, one-night orientation session that runs alongside the June, July and August New Student Orientation sessions.

Schedule Your Orientation

To schedule your orientation date please go to the Orientation & Transition Programs (OTP) website.

*Note: Cadets can request an exemption to this policy due to an extenuating circumstance by contacting, Darcy Hayes, Director of Orientation & Transition Programs, at 706-864-1010 or Darcy.Hayes@ung.edu.

Step 3: Freshman Advance Scheduling Online Form

After you pay your room deposit and register for New Student Orientation you will be eligible to participate in UNG's Freshman Advance Scheduling Program.

You will be registered for 12-17 credit hours of courses that are appropriate to your major.

Most majors require completing at least 120 credit hours. This equates to an average of 15 credit hours per semester to graduate in four years, or eight semesters.

You will be able to adjust your schedule during New Student Orientation and then again during the Add/Drop period.

Step 4: Email Account and Information Technology

Upon admission to UNG, you are provided with a student email account. Student email is the official channel of communication between the university and its students. It is your responsibility to monitor your student email account and be aware of the information sent by the university.

You can access your student account information by the following:

*Note: If you have IT related questions or concerns, you may contact the IT Service Desk at (706) 864-1922, by email at helpdesk@ung.edu, or stop by their office in the Library Technology Center, Room 164.

Step 5: Financial Assistance

New financial aid information is updated at the beginning of March each year for the following academic year. 

Applying for the FAFSA

  • Visit Financial Aid Website
  • On the left under Financial Aid, Select “Paying for College”
  • Select “Federal Aid”
  • Follow the Steps in the Middle of the Screen

*Note: All financial aid correspondence is done through your UNG email account.

Check Your Financial Aid Status

Once you have applied for financial aid by filling out the Free Application for Financial Aid (FAFSA), you can check your financial aid status by the following:

*Note: Please refer to the Financial Aid website for deadlines and preferred filing dates. You will be assigned a financial aid counselor based on the first letter of your last name. If you have financial aid related questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 706-864-1412.

Cadets Receiving Financial Aid Credits

Funds will be made available in your bookstore account on day one of FROG Week. This includes Cadets receiving scholarship money (Army ROTC Scholarship for books or Georgia Military Scholarship for books and uniforms).

Georgia ROTC Grant and Future Officer's Grant

The General Assembly of the State of Georgia has established an ROTC grant for eligible Cadets enrolled in the Corps of Cadets at UNG. The grant is for a maximum of $750 each semester of the regular academic year (fall and spring) through your senior year. 

You must be a legal resident of the state of Georgia, a full-time student, be enrolled in a military science class and earn a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. You must also be in good conduct standing with the Commandant of Cadets at the end of each semester. The grant is paid during the last week of each semester. The amount of the grant may vary due to the availability of state funding. You will fill out the ROTC Grant Application during FROG Week in-processing. Each year after, you must apply for this grant with the Financial Aid Office.

If you sign a contract with the Professor of Military Science (PMS) to commission as an Army officer prior to earning 90 semester hours, you will also receive the Future Officer's Grant which pays up to an additional $750 per semester. To receive the additional funds, you must complete the Future Officers application and provide a copy of your ROTC contract to the Financial Aid Office.

You are required to send an official college transcript after each completed college term (even if you withdrew or never enrolled).
    • ­ The Registrar’s Office will conduct a credit evaluation of your college transcripts to determine how many credits will transfer to UNG. For questions, please call 706-864-1760 or email regoff@ung.edu.
  • Final High School Transcripts: Graduation date must include day, month, and year. All credits and grades must be posted.

Parents Instructions for Dropping off Cadets

  • It is not necessary for you to accompany your son or daughter to FROG Week. Current Cadets will assist them with unloading and moving baggage into the residence hall.

For those parents who accompany their son or daughter, there will be a briefing in the Pennington Military Leadership Center about FROG Week and the Corps of Cadets during in-processing.

  • Moderators of our North Georgia Cadet Parents Facebook group work directly with UNG staff to provide parents with timely information about upcoming Corps activities. To join the "closed" group, please send an email to the Parents & Family Association Cadet Parent Representative at parents.association@ung.edu.

Step 14: Consider Participating in the Summer Language Institute

Get a jump start on your academics by attending the UNG Summer Language Institute. Knock out your foreign language requirement before you start college in the fall. Earn nine semester hours of credit.

Learn a foreign language such as Arabic, Chinese, German, Korean, Russian, or Spanish. Language offerings change year to year based on student interest.

  • Learn more and to apply to participate.
  • Most Cadets find SLI challenging in that the brevity of the term requires that they maintain a much higher level of focus in order to keep up in their classes.
  • Given their experiences, it's important that you come prepared to focus on your studies. You'll be given plenty of time to study outside the classroom, and help will be available to assist you with your academics if needed. Ultimately, however, your success will depend on your motivation and attention to your studies.
  • The summer term counts like any other term in college. Low grades can result in a loss of scholarship benefits and/or the risk of academic probation in later semesters.

*Note: If you wish to attend the Summer Semester without enrolling in the Summer Language Institute, please be advised that there is no military program (Corps of Cadets) running in the summer. If you attend summer classes and desire to live on campus please contact the Assistant Commandant Office 706-864-1793.

Thank you for your service!
  • FROG Week is a requirement for every new Cadet to attend FROG Week. You will learn the history and traditions associated with the Boars Head Brigade. Contact your unit administrator and request an exemption from drill in order to attend FROG Week or ask for permission to use FROG Week as your drill an obtain a Split Certificate from UNG after FROG Week. If you are unable to gain an exemption, contact the Guard Unit liaisons on campus. Please call (706) 864-1662 for Georgia Army National Guard Officer.
  • You must be prepared to pay your college bills up front. Even with Tuition Assistance (TA), you will still have to pay for your books, fees, uniforms, room, meals, and incidental expenses yourself. If you have Montgomery GI Bill and Tuition Assistance we still recommend that you fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. You may qualify for additional financial assistance. Please visit the financial aid portion of our website to complete a FAFSA

Going to basic/AIT in the summer or fall before enrolling in the spring?

  1. Verify you have a valid room contract and have paid $250 deposit (must be paid before you leave).
  2. Fill out the FAFSA form before you leave for training this summer. Don't wait until you get back! Access the FAFSA and get all info you need about financial aid.
  3. Complete as many steps in the Cadet Admissions Manual checklist before leaving for training. At a minimum, you must have submitted final high school transcripts, checked your banner account, and have set up your student e-mail account.
