FAQs for Students Offered Admission
If you’ve been notified of your admission to Carolina through your ConnectCarolina Student Center, congratulations! 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?
If you’re ready to enroll, we hope you’ll let us know. Please visit the enroll section of our website to find out how.
Whether you enroll now or later, over the next few weeks, we’ll help you learn more about Carolina. We encourage you to join us, if possible, for one or more of the events for admitted students that the University will be hosting this spring. Events will include Admitted Student Days, special information sessions, and Diversity & Inclusion events. We’ll be sending you email invitations soon with event details and instructions on how to register.
Am I being considered for any special opportunities such as merit scholarships or Honors Carolina?
All students who were offered admission were considered for Honors Carolina and other special opportunities. Students who have been selected for one of these programs will be notified during the next several weeks.
When will I hear back about financial aid?
All students who were offered admission were considered for non-need-based scholarships. Students who will be offered one of these scholarships will be notified during the next several weeks.
As for need-based scholarships and other forms of need-based student aid, if you’ve already submitted both the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and CSS Profile, you should hear shortly, through ConnectCarolina, from the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid. Create your UNC ID, or as we call it, your ONYEN (“The Only Name You’ll Ever Need”), and your UNC email account. This is how the student aid office will communicate with you. If you haven’t already submitted your FAFSA and CSS Profile, you must do so by the priority deadline of March 1.
It’s also crucial that you check your To-Do List in ConnectCarolina to make sure the aid office has all the information it needs. More information is available on the Student Aid website or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (866-273-1622).
Each year entering students earn scholarships from external scholarships from organizations such as the General Alumni Association and the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps. Here’s some additional information about these scholarships.
Please let us know if you have any other questions by writing to us at email@example.com or by calling (919) 966-3621, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m-5 p.m., EST.
