Early Action

Our first cycle, October 16, 2015 is the Early Action round. 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 14, 2015. Admitted applicants in the Early Action cycle will be required to submit a $3000 non-refundable enrollment deposit by January 8, 2016, in order to secure a space in the class (versus the regular deadline enrollment deposit of $1500). You should not apply for Early Action if you are not prepared to commit immediately to attending UNC Kenan-Flagler.
