Essay – Students are required to upload a document with answers to 7 different questions (11 questions if you are applying to participate on two programs in the summer). Each answer should be single-spaced, and each answer should have its own page in the document you upload, with 1 inch margins and 12 point font that is easy to read (like Arial, Calibri, Times New Roman, etc). Ensure each answer is within the word limit provided, and paste the question in bold above your answer. Click here for an example.

Resume – Please upload a copy of your most recent resume. Ensure your resume includes past summer activities and any changes to your extracurricular engagement.

UNC TranscriptYou will need to plan ahead if your study abroad application requires that you upload an official PDF copy of your UNC transcript, as transcript orders take on average 1-3 business days to process. Click here for instructions on how to order a copy. If you experience issues accessing or saving your official .pdf transcript, please email the transcript services team at transcript@unc.edu.

Reference – Identify one professor or TA who has taught you here at UNC to submit a reference to support your global programs application. You are encouraged to speak with the instructor to confirm they are willing to write a reference for you prior to sending them the reference form online.

Course Schedule – Please upload a list of the courses you are taking at UNC this semester. You may either print off the schedule directly from ConnectCarolina, or create one in a table. Do not include any courses that you’ve dropped, and wait until you know the status of your enrollment in waitlisted courses before completing this requirement.

Scholarship Application (optional)*
- The Undergraduate Business Program offers competitive merit scholarships for students applying to semester, summer, and GIE study abroad programs (not provided for international internships). Awards typically range from $500-$2,000. To apply, you will need to submit answers to a few additional questions, and upload a personal statement detailing why you wish to be considered for a merit scholarship. The prompt for this personal statement is included in the application.

Honor Code and Campus Safety (documentation may be required)*– Every applicant will be required to agree to uphold the Honor Code while on a Kenan-Flagler sponsored global program, and will answer a series of yes/no questions relating to our safety standards. If you answer “yes” to one or more of the seven safety standards questions, this will not necessarily preclude you from being accepted to study abroad, but you will need to provide additional information and upload additional documents as needed. The Undergraduate Business Program runs your PID through our UNC systems – if your application is flagged, but you have not answered ‘yes’ and provided the necessary documentation, you have thus failed to provide complete, accurate, and truthful information. This evidence will be grounds to deny or withdraw your admission, or to dismiss you after enrollment. In particular, you are required to provide information regarding UNC housing violations (found responsible), and academic or behavioral conduct violations (found responsible). This can include, but is not limited to, academic cheating, conduct violations, alcohol policy infractions, or housing violations of any type during your enrollment at UNC.

You may request a release of your Housing Conduct record to be sent to you electronically, for the purpose of uploading to your application. Please complete this request at http://tinyurl.com/ConductHistoryRequest.

If you are unsure whether your application may be flagged in our PID check for other UNC related infractions, please contact the following departments for additional information:
