Welcome to our new website!

If you’ve visited the Admissions website before today, you might notice that it's been completely revamped. This work has been an exciting endeavor for us, and we hope that you like our “new look.” Many of you helped shape our new site by responding to a special poll we posted on this blog earlier in the year asking for your opinions. We thank you for your input, and we hope that you'll continue to help us refine it over the next year.

While the site includes many new features—such as improved navigation for prospective and admitted students and the “Ask Admissions” tool—the most prominent change is the spotlight we’ve placed on Carolina’s strongest asset: our talented and diverse student body. From the homepage to the interior pages, you’ll have the opportunity to experience Carolina through the faces and words of our students themselves. We encourage you to visit our new and improved “Life” section for a firsthand glimpse at some of Carolina’s most accomplished and passionate students. And stay tuned for more because we hope to add video clips of these same students over the summer.

And whether you like to “scroll” or “click,” you’ll also be able to continue to check up on some familiar faces, specifically the students who post on Tar Heel Blog, from any of the main pages. (For example, select “Tar Heel Blog” from the prospective or admitted student scroll-down menus). We also hope you will continue to visit us for the latest news from our office, which we’ll continue to post on the Admissions Blog.

While our look may have changed, please know that our commitment to you remains the same. In all that we do, we want to continue to serve you. We want to help you get to know us by telling you the truth about Carolina and answering any questions you may have, no matter where you are in your college journey. Please continue to post on the blog, or email or call us with your questions.

We hope you enjoy our new look, and that you continue to keep in touch with us.
