Freshman Notification Deadlines for Fall 2015

Received by: December 1

Notification no later than: January 31

Please note: We often need additional information from applicants after the initial review of their applications due to incomplete and/or omitted information. All requested information must be received by our posted deadlines. Our application process typically takes four to six weeks once all materials are received by our office, and applying too close to the deadline is strongly discouraged due to these time constraints.

Regulations implemented by the UNC system require us to request additional information regarding Community Standards Questions, if needed. If an application is received without reasonable time to collect this information, we will be unable to review the application, and you must reapply and submit a new application fee to be considered for a subsequent semester.
