Readmit Student Checklist

Welcome back to the University of North Georgia!

As a readmitted student, you're bound to have some questions about starting classes at the University of North Georgia (UNG) – you know you're accepted, but what's next? Whether you have been away a few years or a few semesters, some things have changed. Please read through each item carefully and explore the links provided for more information.

1. Immediate Steps After Acceptance

Activate your UNG Account

You will use the same username and password to login to a number of important university systems. Use the activate your UNG account link to find your username and enroll in the password management system.

Once complete, then you will be able to access and explore:

Submit your Confirmation of Acceptance Form

Confirm your acceptance.  (Sign in to the linked page and click on 'confirm').

You must complete the Confirmation of Acceptance process prior to completing the next steps.

You will not have to pay a confirmation fee. You will only need to submit the form via your check application status page. 

Schedule your Orientation Date

Each of the five campuses has an orientation program designed to fit the needs of its particular student population.

All readmitted students are required to attend an in-person orientation session prior to starting classes.

Please note that you must submit your confirmation of acceptance and complete all placement tests (if required) before accessing the orientation reservation system. 

In general, you should plan to attend a Readmit Student Orientation (RSO) according to the timeline listed below:

  • Admitted for fall – June, July, or August
  • Admitted for spring – December or January
  • Admitted for summer – April or May

Apply for Financial Aid

If you’d like assistance in paying your tuition and fees, the Financial Aid office may be able to help. Financial aid encompasses both federal and state aid programs, including federal loans, scholarships (for academics, athletics, leadership, etc.), and VA benefits. We encourage you to explore all your options and carefully determine the right amount of aid for your circumstances.  

After submitting your financial aid application, you should be very pro-active in monitoring your eligibility and award status via your BannerWeb account.

The Financial Aid Timeline is a helpful tool for all students.

Important Note:  Although you can apply for most forms of aid at any time during the academic year, it’s best to submit your application and all required supporting documents before the priority deadlines to ensure your aid can be processed and awarded prior to the start of term. 

  • Fall Priority Deadline – February 14
  • Spring Priority Deadline – November 1
  • Summer Priority Deadline – April 1

Submit your Housing Application (residential students in Dahlonega only)

If you’ve been accepted as a residential student on the Dahlonega Campus, you must submit a housing application. Once your Confirmation of Acceptance form and fee have been processed, the Office of Residence Life will email additional instructions via UNG Student Email. This email also signifies that you now have access to the Housing portal/application process. You are encouraged to start the process as soon as possible and need to watch your UNG emails closely once you have started for further instructions.

Please note that even if you decide not to attend UNG, you are still responsible for the $150 housing application fee if you have already applied for housing.  If you decide not to attend after choosing a bed and submitting the housing contract, you must submit a completed Housing Cancellation Request to the Office of Residence Life.  Financial penalties may apply.


2. Actions to Complete Prior to Orientation/Class Registration

Complete Online Pre-Orientation (OPO) Modules

All incoming students, including readmit students, must complete the Online Pre-Orientation modules prior to orientation/class registration. A hold is placed on the student account preventing schedule adjustments until these modules are complete. You can access the OPO modules by logging into your Check Application Status page.

Check for Holds

Check for holds on Banner under the “Student” tab > “Student Records”> “View Holds”
All holds must be resolved before you can register. 

Student Holds Explained

Please note you are required to have up to date immunization records on file with Student Health Services. If updates are needed, you will have a hold listed on your Check Application Status page with “immunization incomplete”. You can contact Student Health Services for more information. This hold will prevent you from registering for classes. However, once you reserve a seat in orientation we can turn off the registration restriction until after you complete the orientation session. Please contact Orientation and Transition Programs if you need assistance with moving this hold back.

Review your Transfer Credit Evaluation

Log in to BannerWeb to review your academic transcript (Banner Web > Student Tab > Student Records > Student Tranguid) and ensure that all credit has been articulated. If you do not see a course on your transcript that you believe should be there, there may be a few reasons:

  • In-progress courses – credit for courses you are currently enrolled in, have completed while in the admissions process, or completed since the last time you submitted a transcript from your previous institution will not be applied until an official transcript indicating grades is received
  • Course credit for AP or other test credit – Official scores may not have been received from the testing agency used to take the tests, which is needed to post this credit
  • Non-transferrable courses – some credit may not have been accepted based on the accreditation of the institution where the courses were taken or based on the technical nature of the coursework.

Any test scores or transcripts that have not been sent to UNG should be sent as soon as possible (with final grades or scores indicated) to ensure application of appropriate credit to your record.

Any questions about your transfer credit evaluation can be sent to

Complete eCore Introduction Quiz

All incoming students should complete the eCore Introduction Quiz prior to attending orientation or registering for classes whether or not they plan to take an online course at this time. The quiz takes less than 10 minutes to complete.

eCore courses are designed, developed, taught and supported by faculty and staff from the University System of Georgia (USG) and are a great option for completing core curriculum requirements.

PLEASE NOTE: The eCore academic calendar (start/stop dates) is different from the normal UNG academic calendar. 

Visit the UNG eCore web page for more information.

Order your Parking Permit

Parking permits are required and are issued to students at the Parking Services Office. Learn more about parking permits here.

Submit a Photo for your UNG ID Card

Visit the  UNG ID Card Photo Submission page to see photo guidelines and the photo submission portal

Set up your Disability Accommodations (as needed)

As you may already know, obtaining special accommodations in college is different than it is in high school.  If you previously had an IEP, 504 plan, or other documentation that would reflect the need for accommodations, please contact the Office of Student Disability Services to discuss your specific needs and the process to receive accommodations at UNG. Please be advised that the intake process takes time, so it’s important to schedule an appointment before the start of term to ensure your accommodations are in place when classes begin. Students must actively request accommodations, even when they transfer from another college, through the Student Disability Services office in order to receive them.

Register for Campus Mailbox (Dahlonega - Residential Only)

Residential students on the Dahlonega Campus can complete the Mailbox Request Form to receive a mailbox at the UNG Post Office located in Hoag Student Center.

Register for Classes

Readmitted students who have confirmed  their acceptance (on the check application status page) and completed the Online Pre-Orientation have the option to self-register for classes prior to Orientation. 

How to Register

At your in-person orientation session, you will have the opportunity to meet with an academic advisor and make changes to your schedule.

3. Actions to Complete After Orientation/Prior to First Day of Class

Pay Tuition and Fees

Please visit the Payment Deadlines & Information web page for approximate information on when to pay fees. Students attending an orientation will have a different fee payment deadline which will be after their scheduled orientation session. You will learn more about this at orientation. We do encourage you to go ahead and set up a payment plan after you have registered for classes, but prior to orientation if needed.

Read about viewing and paying your student invoice.

Submit your Remaining Admissions Documents

Check your application status to ensure that the Office of Admissions has everything they need to finalize your admittance. A complete list of Admissions paperwork can be found on the Check Your Application Status webpage.

*If you have been classified as an out-of-state resident for tuition classification purposes but believe this designation is incorrect, please review the residency policy and complete the Application for In State Tuition

Tech Talk

The Tech Talk guide is an introduction to the highly utilized technologies available at UNG. Students should be familiar with each of the items in this guide.

Complete Part One of both SAPU and AlcoholEdu

Students beginning in the Summer or Fall semester should complete the first modules for both AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates (SAPU) by October 1. A second set of modules will need to be completed by November 1.

Detailed information on how to access and complete these required modules can be found on the AlcoholEdu & SAPU webpage.

If you previously completed the AlcoholEdu modules and/or Haven (prior to June 30, 2018) or SAPU (after July 1, 2018) modules, through UNG or another University System of Georgia institution please email

UNG follows Section 508 Standards and WCAG 2.0 for web accessibility. If you require the content on this web page in another format, please contact the ADA Coordinator.
