FAQs for Students Offered Admission

If you’ve been notified of your admission to Carolina through your ConnectCarolina Student Center, we hope you’ll decide to make Carolina your home for the next four years.

I’ve viewed my decision in my ConnectCarolina Student Center and learned that I’ve been admitted! What do I do next?
Over the next few weeks, we’ll help you learn more about Carolina. If possible, we encourage you to join us for one of our admitted-student events. An email invitation to Admitted Student Day will be sent to you shortly, which will include instructions on how to register for the event in MyCarolina.

When you’re ready to enroll, please visit the Enroll section of our website for detailed information on next steps.

Am I being considered for any special opportunities such as merit scholarships or Honors Carolina?
All students being offered admission were considered for merit scholarships and other special opportunities. Students who have been selected for one of these programs will be notified over the next several weeks.

If you are not initially invited to participate in one of these programs, please note that you will be able to apply to many of these programs once you’re on campus.

When will I hear back about financial aid?
All students who submitted both the FAFSA and CSS Profile by the priority deadline of March 1 will receive information about their aid packages shortly. The Office of Scholarships and Student Aid awards student aid packages as quickly as they can, but you can help by making sure they have all of the information they need. Check your To-Do List in ConnectCarolina periodically to make sure they haven’t requested more information. Also, create your Onyen and UNC email account, as that is how the Student Aid office will communicate with you. More info is available on the Student Aid website.

Please let us know if you have any other questions; by writing to us at unchelp@admissions.unc.edu by calling (919) 966-3621, Monday-Friday, 8:00 am – 5:00 PM, EST.
