Hi, we are glad you are here!

NOTE: REGARDING APPOINTMENTS POST MARCH 13, 2020 AND PUBLIC HEALTH PRECAUTIONS

The University is working to transform on-campus instruction to virtual platforms and encouraging remote meetings for the remainder of the semester in an effort to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. Our office within Scholarships and Student Aid (Vance Hall) is currently closed for in-person meetings until further notice. At this time, all inquiries should be directed to carolinacovenant@unc.edu, where we will be happy to answer your questions.

You can email carolinacovenant@unc.edu for answers to general questions about the Carolina Covenant program, questions about a financial aid, or to connect with an individual member of our team. If you would like to meet virtually using video conferencing or via phone with any member of our staff about a general question, you may make a 30-minute appointment with one of us here. You can read more about scheduling appointments with individual team members for specific questions below.
