Special Note to First-Deadline Candidates

To all of our first-deadline candidates who did not receive their decisions by January 31, we apologize. We realize that you have waited patiently for several months, and we can understand your frustration at having to wait longer. For those of you who are still without a decision, we have tried to reach you by email or telephone regarding the information we need to finalize your decision.

If you applied by November 2 and you still have not heard from us, please login to MyUNC to make sure that you do not have any missing items. These items will be listed in your “To-do” list. In order for us to finalize your decision it is crucial that you provide the missing item(s) as soon as possible. If you sent in a required missing item more than 10 days ago, and still do not have a decision, please contact us at (919) 966-3621.

In reviewing the remainder of these cases, we believe that there may have been confusion about deadline notification. A number of applicants who applied by November 2 selected our final deadline for their notification. Because these students applied prior to the first deadline, we emailed them several weeks ago and today to confirm that the second deadline was indeed their choice. If you received that email and did not have an opportunity to respond, or if you think this situation could apply to you, please call or email us so we can appropriately adjust your notification date.

If you are still awaiting a decision and neither of the above situations applies to you, or if you have any questions, please call (919) 966-3621 or email us. Again, we are sorry for the delay, but please know that we are working around the clock to resolve these issues.
