The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

The Carolina Covenant

The Covenant is a promise: Eligible low-income students who earn admission have the opportunity to graduate from Carolina debt-free.

Covenant Report Card: Destination SuccessThere is no separate application. Simply apply to UNC and apply for financial aid.

With grants, scholarships, and a work-study job, Carolina Covenant Scholars can earn a UNC degree without student loans. The Covenant also offers academic and personal support to help Covenant Scholars get the most out of UNC and graduate on time.

Launched more than a decade ago, the Covenant now serves more than 1-in-10 UNC undergraduates.
