Admissions Referral Program

To be eligible for nomination through our UNC Admissions Referral Program (ARP), out-of-state and international students must apply to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill by October 15, 2017—Carolina’s (non-binding) Early Action deadline.

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions reviews applications received by that date and submits a small number to the Morehead-Cain Foundation for consideration.

Students nominated through the ARP will be notified by e-mail on December 20, 2017.

ARP nominees must submit completed Morehead-Cain applications no later than January 9, 2018.

ARP nominees selected as Morehead-Cain finalists will be notified by e-mail and invited to Final Selection Weekend. ARP finalist notification e-mails will go out at 5:00 p.m. on January 19, 2018.

Final Selection Weekend will be held March 3–March 6, 2018, on the UNC campus in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

The Morehead-Cain Class of 2020 will be selected and notified on March 9, 2018; the deadline to accept the Morehead-Cain is April 11, 2018.
