Confirm Intent to Enroll by June 1

Admitted candidates who have placed a seat deposit must also confirm their intent to enroll as the final stage of the enrollment commitment. We do not require a second seat deposit payment. Confirmation of your intent to enroll is required before you will be assigned to your class section, for any scholarship that is aligned with your Self Service Carolina account, and for your class schedule to be created. You will receive an email message in late May that directs you to the confirmation survey.   

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
