How Do I Apply for Cumbres?
You must first be admitted to UNC based on our admissions criteria. Once you have been admitted, you may apply to the Cumbres program. When we receive your application, we will contact you to schedule a personal interview to discuss your goals and eligibility for Cumbres. This interview will be conducted either in person or via Zoom.
*Please make sure to sync your e-mail accounts and check your junk folders, as messages from UNC can somestimes get lost.
Once You Are Admitted
You will need to apply for housing. When you fill out your housing application, indicate that you are in Cumbres and should be assigned to Brown Hall. They will confirm your membership with Cumbres and then assign your room. The deadline to apply for Cumbres-specific housing is July 1.
If possible, please register for New Student Orientation (dates TBD). Cumbres staff will be there to know you and provide program-related information.
After you are admitted to the program, you will need to make sure you have completed your FAFSA application and submitted it no later than March 1. You will also need to fill out the UNC Scholarship Application and indicate that you are a member of Cumbres. This will help us ensure that you receive your scholarship.
