Freshmen Admitted for Spring

Congratulations, Niner!

Congratulations on your admission to UNC Charlotte for the spring semester! Your academic achievement, extracurricular involvement and diverse experiences make you a great fit for the Niner Nation familly.

Initially applied for fall admissions and admitted for spring? 

We understand you may be disappointed that you were not offered admission for the fall semester, but we hope you will consider the benefits of spring admission at UNC Charlotte as you make your enrollment decision. Download this handy guide for spring admission information and upcoming deadlines.


  • Given our commitment to academic success for all students, we are unable to admit all the qualified applicants who wish to enroll for fall. We offer spring admission to students when we are at capacity for fall admission. Our offer is made to students who meet the admissions criteria, and who we feel will be academically successful.
  • In the event that space becomes available for the fall, we will look to the students who have confirmed their intent to enroll for spring to offer an earlier enrollment option. Space availability varies year to year. If we are able to offer you fall admission, we will contact you after May 1.
  • Students are highly advised to take classes at another institution for the fall and expected to earn a “C” or better. A recommendation for the number of credit hours is 12-15. If you intend to take classes this Fall, then we recommend you reach out to one of our admissions counselors for any assistance you may need. Outside of fall coursework, additional options could be community service or employment.
