A Partnership for Success

In order for UNC students to transition into successful Bears, we know that their support systems are important. It’s crucial to us that we work with you to provide support for students in this exciting and unnerving transition to life at UNC. We want to make sure you have the resources that you need to help you and your Bear thrive while they are in college. This site can be your gateway to everything UNC—from Financial Aid to Career Services to safety on campus.
