When will I know if I am invited to interview?
The Admissions Committee typically meets in early to mid-January to make these decisions.  You will be notified by email following this meeting. 

When do the interviews take place?
We typically schedule our interviews in February and March.  Details about the available dates are sent with your invitation to interview. Interview dates are scheduled on a first-come first-served basis. If you are invited to interview you should respond as soon as possible to ensure that you will be able to schedule your preferred date.

What happens when I come to interview at UNCG?
Interview dates have both morning and afternoon sessions. Each session includes a presentation by the Program Director, individual interviews with all members of the Admissions Committee as well as an opportunity to meet informally with other applicants and current students during lunch.

Does UNCG provide any help with the costs for traveling to Greensboro to interview?
Unfortunately, we are not able to provide any reimbursement for your travel costs.  Historically, some current students will provide housing for applicants during their scheduled interview. Please let us know as soon as possible following your interview invitation if you are interested in staying with a current student.  Requests are honored in the order in which they are received.

Our students also organize informal social gatherings for applicants in the evenings.  You will receive information about any additional available opportunities once you confirm your interview. 

When will I know if I am offered admission to the program?
All accredited programs offer admission on the same date, which is established by the Association of Genetic Counseling Program Directors (AGCPD).  Applicants are made aware of this date and provided with AGCPD Guidelines for Admissions during their interview.
