First-year Waiting List Review

Thanks to all of those first-year applicants who have accepted a place on our waiting list. We appreciate your continued interest in Carolina.

This afternoon, we posted another round of decisions for our first-year students. We may make several additional admission offers over the coming weeks, so if you did not receive a new decision today, please know that your application is still under consideration and you do not need to take any action. You will remain on the waiting list and will receive full consideration for any additional space we have in the class. All students will have a final decision by June 30 at the latest.

If you were admitted from the waiting list, you may enroll and pay your enrollment deposit on your MyUNC. Once you've enrolled, you may apply for campus housing and register for orientation (CTOPS) through your MyUNC. Additionally, if you completed your FAFSA and CSS profile by the March 1, 2010 deadline, you should receive financial aid information by June 4, 2010.

Again, we appreciate your patience and continued interest. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Community Standards Forms for Transfer Students

If you are an enrolling transfer student, please remember that your updated Community Standards form is due by June 15. This form appears on your to-do list in your MyUNC account, and you may download the form here.

Please note that when you send the form, it will not immediately disappear from your to-do list. There is no need to re-submit the form; if we need additional information we will contact you.

As part of our responsibility to ensure a safe and secure campus community, our staff reviews each Community Standards form carefully in conjunction with each student's original application for admission. This process takes time, which means that there may be some delay between our receiving your form and when it is removed from your to-do list. If any additional information is needed after this review is completed, our office will be in touch. We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience during this time.

Don't Forget to Sign Up for Orientation by May 28

On behalf of the Office of New Student and Parent Programs, we'd like to remind all enrolling students to be sure and sign up for Orientation. All new first-year students are required to participate in a two-day New Student Orientation Program to learn about the Carolina curriculum, gain insight on the expectations, responsibilities, and opportunities associated with being a Tar Heel, and register for classes.

The May 28 deadline to register is quickly approaching, so if you've haven't already registered, please click here for more information on 2010 Orientation Registration, dates and fees, checklists, FAQs, placement test information, and much more.

Beyond attending Summer Orientation, all new students are encouraged to take advantage of additional orientation-related programs designed to help with the transition to Carolina and to facilitate your success on our campus. To learn more about programs and opportunities to help you transition to living and learning in the Carolina community, please read the Orientation and Beyond brochure designed just for you.

We look forward to seeing you there. For more information, please contact the Office of New Student and Parent Programs at (919) 962-8304 or by email at

The University is running a routine maintenance on the MyUNC system this weekend, so students will not be able to create new onyens or UNC guest IDs from noon on Friday, May 14 until midnight on Sunday, May 16. Other MyUNC functions will be working normally.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
