Summer Orientation for Covenant Scholars

You’re invited to a special session during UNC’s New Student Orientation!

In addition to the regular New Student Orientation programs, we ask that you attend the Carolina Covenant info session. It takes place during your regular orientation visit, and it should answer any questions you and your family might have about the Carolina Covenant.

How Much? It’s on us! The Covenant will cover the cost of UNC’s orientation for you and one family member or guest. See below for details.

Where? The Student Union. Check your program when you arrive for the room number of the Covenant orientation session.

When? TBD. Check back soon!
