For those considering a return to the classroom, the VISIONS program at UNCG is unique, giving easy access to an incredible variety of graduate courses. Here, you can boost your career, get ready for grad school, or just learn and explore. UNCG’s VISIONS program is designed to provide qualified individuals with the opportunity to enroll in graduate-level courses without having to apply and be admitted to a specific degree program. As a non-degree seeking or visiting student, you can explore a program or two, build personal confidence and academic skills, and refine your personal or professional interests, or renewal of teacher licensure. Credits earned at UNCG through VISIONS are recorded in the University Registrar’s Office on an official transcript.
