By 1949, it was the largest all-female institution in the United States.

Most Popular Programs
- Each November, the SVA organizes a Veterans Awareness Week to increase recognition of veterans and their families through campus activities such as thank you cards for Wounded Warriors, a Remembrance Ceremony including the National Roll Call and Moment of Silence, and free basketball tickets to anyone with a military ID. In addition, the University Libraries hosts a luncheon in affiliation with the Betty H. Carter Women Veterans Historical Project, a collection which documents the contributions of women in the military with a wide range of photographs, artifacts and oral histories.
- To better meet the needs of veterans as they transition into the civilian workforce, the UNC Greensboro School of Nursing launched an accelerated bachelor’s in nursing degree program (BSN) for medically trained military veterans. UNCG-VAP (Veterans Access Program) is an innovative program that allows veterans credit for their valuable hands-on medical experience. UNCG-VAP is funded by a three-year federal Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) grant of just under $1 million. With some prior college credit, veterans who are RNs can earn the BSN within nine months.
Military Student Support
- The Veterans Resource Center offers a wide-range of programs for military veterans, spouses, dependents, and the larger UNCG community. Programs are designed to assist veteran students with needs such as finding full and part-time employment, connecting to campus, making the most of military benefits, and transitioning to campus life. Coordinated events include veteran only outdoor trips in partnership with UNCG’s Outdoor Adventure program, community service opportunities, social events, and networking and career events.
