First-Year Enrollment Deadline Extension

We have extended the first-year online enrollment deposit deadline to Monday, May 3, 2010 at 9:00 am ET. To secure your enrollment at Carolina, you will need to reply to us through your MyUNC account by this date. If you are mailing your enrollment deposit and reply form, the postmark deadline is Saturday, May 1, 2010. The deadline for applicants admitted from the waiting list is Monday, May 17, 2010.

First-Year Waiting List Review Has Begun

Thanks to all of those first-year applicants who have accepted a place on our waiting list. We know that the waiting is difficult, and we really appreciate your continued interest in Carolina.

We have now begun our work of reviewing the waiting list, and this afternoon we posted new decisions for a limited number of first-year students. We may make several additional waves of admission offers over the coming weeks, so if you did not receive a new decision, please know that your application is still under consideration. Students who did not receive a new decision today do not need to take any action at this point; you will remain on the waiting list and receive full consideration for any additional spaces we have in the class. All students will have a final decision by June 30, at the latest.

Again, we truly appreciate your patience as we finalize the first-year class. Please let us know what questions you have.
