First Years

How to get yourself here.

Each year, we enroll just under 4,000 students in our first-year class. If you’d like to be one of them, you’re in the right place.

We offer two application deadlines for first-year applicants, so you can choose whichever deadline best fits your schedule. You’ll apply through the Common Application, a convenient online application that allows you to apply to multiple schools in one place.

You can also learn about UNC through the College Foundation of North Carolina. Although we no longer accept applications through CFNC, we are still a linked school in their network, so if you are attending a N.C. high school, you can submit transcripts and other materials through their website.
