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:

Early Action

Our first cycle (deadline October 15, 2018) 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 7, 2018. Admitted applicants in the Early Action cycle will be required to submit a $3000 non-refundable enrollment deposit by January 4, 2019, 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.
