While You’re Deciding


Stay Up-To-Date On Financial Aid

Share Important Details

  • We need your accurate Social Security Number (SSN). If you didn’t provide it on your application, please share it with us in your ConnectCarolina Student Center.
  • Sometimes we need more information to complete your financial aid offer. If we do, we’ll note this in your ConnectCarolina To-Do List, so check there regularly.


  • Enroll by May 1 in MyCarolina. You’ll officially be a Tar Heel once you accept your offer of admission and pay your $250 non-refundable deposit.
  • If you’re an international student, look out for information from International Student and Scholar Services and be sure to check your ConnectCarolina Student Center and upload any required documents.

After You Enroll

      • Check in. Continue to check MyCarolina and ConnectCarolina for updates from campus.
      • Test scores. If you’d like college credit by exam, send us your official scores via the respective testing service ASAP. See if your scores qualify for credit. Check ConnectCarolina to verify that we’ve received your scores and that credit has been properly awarded. If your coursework was completed at a university outside of the United States, we’ll only be able to complete your transfer credit evaluation after we’ve received your required transcript evaluation by World Education Services, Inc.
      • Math placement. You’ll need to take testing before the end of high school to fulfill the math requirement and gain placement into math courses at Carolina.
      • Honor code. If you’ve had any school-based disciplinary incidents or criminal charges, excluding any that have been expunged, since applying for admission, email us at
        It’s rare that we’ve had to revoke an offer of admissions as a result. However, not letting us know in a timely manner may affect your decision.
      • Set up your PIN. To help protect your privacy, you’ll set up a unique number that helps you connect with offices across campus.
      • Provide official copies of your final high school transcript and transcripts for any college coursework. View instructions in MyCarolina.
