A message from the campus:

Welcome to St. Andrews University!

St. Andrews strives to educate our students to be knowledgeable and imaginative servant-leaders well prepared for a lifetime of learning, leadership, and service in an ever-changing and interdependent world.   to be knowledgeable and imaginative

St. Andrews is different. At St. Andrews, professors know you by name and take the time to work with you. The flexibility of the academic program helps you achieve your goals. (You can even design your own major at St. Andrews.) The technology you need to succeed is available from the minute you step on campus.

Some large universities are rigid and impersonal. Students are known by a number, classes are held in tremendous lecture halls and that class you needed to finish your degree, well, it was closed out and you can't get in. Now, your four-year program just turned into five years and summer school. And, by the way, all those great computers, well those are reserved for graduate students.

The St. Andrews focus is on YOU. In completing this application, please remember that we want to know you. Sure, your grades and test scores are important, but our real interest is in making sure that you and St. Andrews will be a good match. Please call us at 1(800)763-0198 if you have questions about your application or the University.

Thank you.

High School Transcripts

Most North Carolina public high schools now have the capability to electronically send official high school transcripts to all 110 North Carolina colleges and universities through We encourage you to visit your school counselor to verify coursework and grades prior to requesting an electronic transcript.

To send an electronic transcript, you must:

  • Make sure you have entered the following information in your profile and/or online admission application:
    • First and Last name - This must match your legal name (use the name that appears on your report card, or check with your high school counselor).
    • NC Student Number (formerly NC WISE Student ID) - is your North Carolina public high school student identifier number and is only applicable to North Carolina High School students. Providing the NC Student Number is voluntary and if provided, will give you the opportunity to request your high school transcript electronically.
    • Current high school (or high school at time of graduation)
    • Date of birth
    • E-mail address
    • Gender
  • Be currently enrolled at or graduated from in 2013, a participating public high school in North Carolina that has converted from NC WISE to PowerSchool/HomeBase. If you are not sure about your school's current status or statusat the time you graduated, check with your school counselor.

Important Announcement:

As of November 13, 2013, electronic transcripts for some schools are now being processed from NC DPI's new PowerSchool system. Please refer to the list of schools spreadsheet to see if your school is in a district that has chosen to send from the new PowerSchool system, or if your school is in a district that has chosen to send from the NC WISE system. The differences are described below.

PowerSchool: This means that currently enrolled students can now send electronic transcripts that contain their current student information from PowerSchool.
Please note there will be a temporary process change for electronic transcripts until later this academic year for students who graduated in summer 2013 or before. NC DPI is in the process of migrating historical data from NC WISE to PowerSchool. If you graduated in summer 2013 or before, you will need to contact your high school directly to request a transcript.

NC WISE: This means that all currently enrolled students and former students can send electronic transcripts that contain their information from NC WISE. For currently enrolled seniors, please note that transcripts from NC WISE do not include any courses in which you are currently enrolled (Fall 2013).

Over the next few weeks NC DPI is working to transition all remaining schools to the new PowerSchool system. Please check this message area and the list of schools spreadsheet (link above) for the latest information.

If these conditions were met when you submitted your online application, you will then be presented with the option to request your high school transcript be sent electronically to that institution.

If you submitted an online admission application through another website or university portal, we encourage you to request your high school transcript be sent electronically to that institution from the CFNC Transcript Manager (located under the Apply tab → To College → Transcript Manager).
