Active-Duty Military or Veterans

You were proud to serve. And we’re proud to have you.

If you’re a veteran seeking to earn a bachelor’s degree, we appreciate your service and welcome you to consider Carolina. UNC-Chapel Hill has a proud military history dating back to 1789 with the university’s founder and first president, William Richardson Davie, a Revolutionary War Veteran. We are proud of our students who have graduated from Carolina and gone on to serve in the military and we are proud of our veterans who have made the choice to attend Carolina after they have served our country.

Warrior-Scholar Project
Carolina is a proud host campus for the Warrior-Scholar Project. The Warrior-Scholar Project offers immersive one and two-week academic workshops or “boot camps.” These workshops are offered free of charge to enlisted veterans at some of America’s top colleges and universities.

Veterans Benefits
We offer a number of benefits at Carolina for active duty military and enrolling veterans. Veterans who are on active duty may qualify for the military tuition benefit, which allows them to attend the University at the in-state tuition rate. We will also waive the application fee for any applicant who is an active-duty member of the U.S. Armed Forces. If you are eligible for VA benefits, you may apply to the U.S. Veterans Administration for these funds after being admitted to the University. We are also honored to be a participating institution in the Yellow Ribbon Program sponsored by the Veterans Administration. This program is designed to designed to help meet the gap in tuition and fees that exceed the cost of in-state tuition.

If you still have questions after reviewing the information or need to make an appointment in person, please contact Jan Benjamin at Jan.Benjamin@unc.edu.
