To-Do List FAQ

I requested that my transcript/recommendation letter (or other material) be sent weeks ago. It's still showing up as a missing item in my To-Do list.

As we approach our first deadline, please be aware that application submission is at its peak, and our records managers are very busy preparing all applications and materials for review. After an item is received by our office, it may take 4-6 weeks before it is matched with your application and removed from your To-Do List.

Please also be aware that if your application has been submitted (or postmarked if you are using our paper application) by November 2 you will be considered for our first deadline. Be sure to send the other required items as soon as possible. Over the next few weeks, if we find that we are missing any item from your application, we will be in touch with you through email to let you know.

If you still show an item in your to-do-list 4 weeks after you know it has been sent, please contact us at (919) 966-3621 or email us at And if your email address or other contact information changes after you submit your application, please update them on your MyUNC portal immediately.

We recognize that this time of year can be stressful, especially as you balance your college applications with busy senior schedules.
