We're looking forward to having you at UNCSA! You have plenty to do to get ready for the time ahead. Please follow the checklist below to complete your enrollment and prepare for the school year.
Every Student Must:
To reserve your space in the fall class, we must receive your Enrollment Deposit as soon as possible. Log in to the Applicant Portal to view your status page to pay
A refund of a deposit will be granted if the request is made in writing and received in the Office of Admissions prior to May 1. No refunds will be issued after this date. If you are admitted after May 1 your payment must be received within 10 business days of receipt of your acceptance letter.
Graduate students may apply for on-campus housing. Graduate students are exempt from the on-campus living requirement and are therefore not guaranteed on-campus housing. Housing on campus is limited and applications will be subject to a wait list pending availability of space on campus.
Email the UNCSA Residence Life Programs Main Office for additional information about housing options for graduate students.
When your Enrollment Deposit is received you will be assigned a UNCSA Artist email account. You will receive an email with set-up instructions. If you haven't received the instruction email, contact your Admissions counselor.
Once you have set up your account, please check it on a regular basis. You will be receiving important communication from various on-campus departments (such as Financial Aid, Registrar, etc.) as well as faculty and staff.
The Office of Student Financial Aid administers a full range of federal, state, university,
and private aid programs. Awards may be based on demonstrated need, talent, or both.
If you are applying for financial aid, you must complete the FAFSA. UNCSA’s FAFSA priority filing date is February 1. You can still submit a FAFSA after February 1, but there could be fewer funds available. Financial Aid will be sending emails guiding you to view your E-Z ARTS online portal, so be sure to monitor your artist email account.
Financial Aid Information
Note: International students are not eligible for any federally-funded or need-based financial aid but can be considered for UNCSA merit scholarships. (Due to the limited funding, international students should consider searching and applying for scholarships and grants in your home country.)
A notice that your fall billing statement has been posted to our online billing site, TouchNet, will be emailed to your @artist.uncsa.edu email address on or before Tuesday, July 12, 2022. Any questions regarding your statement, or future billing dates, should be directed to email@example.com or 336-770-1416.
*Due to system issues in the billing process, bill distribution date for Fall 2022 has moved from Friday, July 8 to Tuesday, July 12.
Students who have not paid their bill or enrolled in a payment plan by the bill due date of August 4, 2022 are subject to a hold on their account, a late payment fee or other actions as outlined in UNCSA’s Student Payment Regulation 317.
Student Access to TouchNet. The easiest way for a student to access TouchNet is by logging in to E-Z Arts. Once there, click on the “Student” tab, followed by “Student Accounts” and finally “TouchNet.” Students will automatically be signed in to TouchNet via this method.
Authorized Users. Parents or other individuals will only receive billing notifications if they are set up as an Authorized User in TouchNet. Once in the system, a student may add Authorized Users by clicking the link on the right-hand side of the screen and setting their permissions as necessary. Authorized Users have a specific log-in page with direct access to the system.
Payment Plans. Payment plans are available in TouchNet and are offered on a semester-by-semester basis. The earlier you enroll, the more months you have to spread out payments. More information, including the full semester’s schedule and instructions, is available in this My SA announcement.
Health insurance is required for all students. The University offers Student Blue from Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina or you can keep your current health insurance if you are covered by an individual plan or through a parent's plan.
You must enroll into Student Blue or waive out of the insurance at studentbluenc.com. Student Blue waiver and enrollment requests deadline is Sept. 12, 2022.
Online registration for your arts classes will be announced as information is available.
Included in the What to Pack section is art-school specific supplies and items for living in the residence halls.
You must submit an official final transcript from all institutions you attended prior to enrolling. If graduating, the transcript must show the date of graduation. This document should be sent to the Office of Admissions as soon as possible after you graduate or upon completion of your school year. If your transcript has not been received by August 1 you will have a hold placed on your record and you will not be able to enroll.
You are required to submit all Health Services documents by using the Student Health Portal by June 1, 2022.

You can check for holds on your account by logging in to E-Z Arts, student web portal.
After logging in, click on “Student” then “Student Records” and then “View Holds” to see which departments have placed holds on your account.
Remember that when a department or office has placed a hold on your account, you will need to take action with that particular office right away. Only the department that places a hold can remove it.
Among other restrictions, holds will prevent you from registering or changing your class schedule. Students who are indebted to UNCSA are not permitted to attend classes until the debt is settled.
It is recommended that you check for holds in your E-Z Arts account up through the first day of Orientation.
An orientation schedule will be posted online to the Incoming Students Web page as information is available.
Photos may be uploaded July 11-August 5, 2022, to have your One Card waiting for you upon your arrival. If you don't upload a photo, a photo will be taken during your check-in/orientation process.
Incoming students can preregister to adopt Mobile Credential, allowing you to carry your One Card on your supported Apple or Android smartphone or your Apple Watch. Students who preregister will complete the Mobile Credential process during Orientation/check-in and will receive an ID only One Card that is to be carried with them at all times when on campus. Preregistration will be open July 11-Aug. 5.
To pre-register, you must complete the following no later than August 5, 2022:
- Download and install the eAccounts Mobile app to your mobile device and logged in with your UNCSA credentials.
- Upload a photo for your One Card (Note that photo requirements must be met for all submitted photos; you will receive a response back if your photo is rejected and/or needs to be updated; photo upload will be open July 11-Aug. 5)
- Submit your request during the preregistration request period.
Students with a valid driver's license wanting to park a vehicle on campus must complete a vehicle registration form each year and pay the required annual fee for a parking decal. F All drivers need to review the parking regulations and parking map for updated parking zone information. Parking is enforced with tickets, boots, and vehicle tows. Failure to comply with parking regulations may also result in registration and graduation holds.
