Application Deadlines

The Admissions Committee meets November through May and manages applications in cycles. Because of heavy demand and our small class size, early application is strongly recommended. Applicants should use the following guidelines in completing the application:

Applications must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on the application deadline date.

* Requests for admissions decisions before the decision release dates cannot be granted.

You are urged to apply early and to submit the personal information and resume portion of the application. UNC Kenan-Flagler's class size is small, and admission is very competitive. Please make sure you schedule your admissions interview before the date above that is associated with your deadline number as you cannot be admitted without an interview. Please apply by the January deadline in order to be considered for merit fellowships.

The admissions office must also receive GMAT® or GRE (if applicable) and TOEFL® scores by the application deadline in order to consider your application in that cycle.

Decisions are also posted online by 5:00 p.m. on the decision mailing dates.

Early Action

Our first cycle, October 18, 2013, is the Early Action deadline. Early Action is an option for applicants who know for certain that they will attend UNC Kenan-Flagler if admitted. Early Action provides applicants with the certainty of learning their decision by December 13, 2013. Admitted applicants in the Early Action cycle will be required to submit a $2,500 non-refundable enrollment deposit by January 6, 2014, in order to secure a space in the class (versus the regular deadline enrollment deposit of $1000). You should not apply for Early Action if you are not prepared to commit immediately to attending UNC.
