International Admissions at UNC

International Admissions is where all international undergraduate first-year students, transfer students and graduate students begin the process of becoming a UNC Bear! We will help you find the bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral program that is right for you and answer questions you may have about admissions requirements and the application process.

Our campus is small enough to be personal and welcoming, yet big enough to offer rich, diverse opportunities. You can get involved with more than 150 student organizations, attend a host of musical and theatrical performances, attend athletic events and participate in a variety of student activities throughout the year.

Holiday Closure

International Admissions will be closed Dec. 23, 2019–Jan.1, 2020.
