UNCG is pleased to offer an incentive for every student who has completed their COVID-19 vaccination. Vaccinations protect the health and well-being of every student and our campus community.

Each UNCG student who is enrolled for the Fall 2021 semester and submits proof of completed COVID-19 vaccination will receive $50 in Flex on their Spartan Cards. After verification of submissions, Flex will be added to accounts in September. Students will receive an email notifying them when the Flex has been added. Flex may be used on campus at dining locations including Fountain View, the EUC food court restaurants, Chick-Fil-A, and Bojangles, Bestway Grocery at Spartan Village, convenience stores, and vending machines. It can also be used at off-campus locations including Fortune Cookie, Happy Bowl, Tropical Cafe, Home Slice, and Pita Delite.

If you submit your COVID-19 vaccination records, you will receive $50 in Flex by*:

* If you have not received your Flex by the close of the business day (5 p.m.) on the scheduled posted date above, please go here to submit an inquiry.  PLEASE do not contact administrative offices, as you will be directed to complete the online form.

Any student enrolled at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in the fall 2021 semester, who receives a vaccine at any approved location (on or off-campus) and who submits to us proof of their COVID-19 vaccination, is eligible.* *$50 in Flex will be loaded to the student’s account after verifying their enrollment status and completed vaccination after the start of the semester.
Students should submit proof of vaccination here. Watch the "Upload Instructions" first to properly upload your vaccination card using the "Patient Portal." $50 in Flex will be uploaded to your Spartan Card account after we verify your enrollment status and that your vaccination course is completed. We will notify you by your UNCG email when the money has been added to your account. You can also check the schedule on this page for when you can expect to receive the funds.
The COVID-19 vaccination is free for everyone! For a list of vaccination sites, visit https://covid19.ncdhhs.gov/vaccines. You can also get your COVID-19 vaccine at Student Health Services. Call them at 336.334.5340 to set up your appointment.

UNCG will now require all students who are attending at least one class in-person to either submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination or participate in periodic COVID-19 testing. Students living in UNCG residence halls are currently required to submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination or participate in routine COVID-19 testing. Residential students who have not submitted proof of their COVID-19 vaccination will continue to receive information about participating in periodic, mandatory testing through Housing and Residence Life. For more COVID-19 residence hall information, click here. Non-residential students who do not provide proof of vaccination will receive additional communication about periodic testing through the COVID-19 case management team. To read the updated COVID-19 testing policy announcement, click here.
The verification of the fully vaccinated documentation will be reviewed by Student Health Services staff trained on COVID-19 protocols and medical confidentiality standards. If it is determined that a student has submitted false information during the verification process, they will be referred to the Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities. Submitting false information is a violation of the Student Code of Conduct, resulting in conduct sanctions up to and including expulsion if found responsible.
