From the Institution

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is proudly public and has earned a reputation as one of the best universities in the world, preparing its students for a lifetime of leadership and service. Carolina is best known for having one of the strongest and most diverse student bodies in the nation - a community of students from every state and more than 100 countries. Carolina's newest class includes students who will be the first in their families to graduate from college (18%), are high school valedictorians or salutatorians (12%), are committed to serving their communities through volunteering (74%) and are eager to learn and grow in leading, serving, and working with people from different backgrounds (95%). Carolina offers academic opportunities that prepare students to empower themselves and their communities; over the past five graduating classes, an average of 93% of Carolina graduates go on to start their career or enter graduate school within six months of graduating. We're grateful to each young person who shares their story and allows us to get to know them through their application. We're committed to reviewing each candidate individually, holistically and comprehensively within the context of their environment. We think this approach gives us the best chance to understand a student as the unique individual they are, and to treat them as they deserve to be treated-with care, appreciation, and respect. We actively seek excellence in academics, arts, athletics, leadership, service, citizenship, and character. This list isn't exhaustive or prescriptive. When we read an application, we're interested in what a student has done, what they care about, and the difference they will make as a member of Carolina's community. Just by applying for admission, students are additionally considered for a range of special opportunities including scholarships, Honors Carolina, guaranteed enrollment programs, fellowships, and research opportunities. We're committed to ensuring that every student who earns a place at Carolina can afford to attend, and our financial aid program meets full need and enables qualified low-income students to graduate debt-free through the Carolina Covenant.
