At UNC Chapel Hill, we evaluate student-athletes for admission the same way we evaluate all candidates: individually, comprehensively and holistically. We know each student possesses a unique combination of strengths and talents, hopes and dreams that enrich the Carolina community. So the main question we try to answer is whether a student can succeed academically. We only admit students who we believe can thrive in our classrooms and, as you’ll read, our student-athletes are doing extremely well.
Toward this end, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions has worked closely with faculty to strengthen how the university assesses student-athletes’ classroom readiness, and the Academic Support Program for Student-Athletes (ASPSA) has been overhauled to foster learning and classroom achievement. These reforms in admissions and academic support are part of the university’s renewed commitment to help all students, including student-athletes, achieve their fullest potential academically and personally.
