UNC Fall 2018 Application is Open

The Fall 2018 application is open on Common App. Here are a few updates for this year.
  • Excel@Carolina: As part of the first-year application, students can indicate their interest in up to three opportunities offered through Excel@Carolina or they may respond that none of the opportunities interest them. Only students who express an interest will be further considered for Excel@Carolina. 
  • Letter of Recommendation for Transfers: Transfer applicants will now be required to submit one letter of recommendation that describes their academic potential and personal qualities.
  • Claiming NC Residency: Applicants who believe they qualify for North Carolina residency will now need to submit a residency application with the North Carolina Residency Determination Services (RDS), which is a government agency that serves the entire state. Once they submit their residency application, students will receive a Residency Certification Number (RCN), which we will use to verify their residency status for evaluation and tuition purposes.

Application Deadlines:
•   First-Year Early Action deadline: October 15
•   First-Year Regular Decision deadline: January 15
•   Transfer deadline: February 15

Only the application and application fee or application fee waiver request must be submitted by the deadline. Transcripts, secondary school statements, and letters of recommendation may arrive after the deadline. For the October 15 Early Action deadline.
