Early Action

Our first cycle, October 17, 2014, 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 15, 2014. Admitted applicants in the Early Action cycle will be required to submit a $2,500 non-refundable enrollment deposit by January 5, 2015, 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.
