In light of Campus closure and as a precautionary measure regarding COVID-19, employees in the Office of the Registrar are working remotely in an effort to support our campus community. We ask for your patience as some services may be limited and response time may increase. Staff is working diligently to respond as quickly as possible to voicemails, emails, etc. We appreciate your understanding as we prioritize health and safety. Updates will be published to UNC's COVID-19 information page as the situation develops.
