Credit Programs for Part-time Students

Application

Apply for Admission to Part-time Classroom Studies

To enroll in a Part-time Classroom Studies course, you must submit an application by the deadline (see Calendars for deadlines). A nonrefundable application fee of $80 is required with all applications except applications for readmission. There is a $25 late fee for applications submitted after the deadline (postbacs only).

UNC-Chapel Hill Employees

The application fee and tuition is waived if you are a permanent employee of UNC-Chapel Hill who works 30 or more hours per week. Tuition (but not the application fee) is waived if you are a permanent employee of UNC Hospitals who works 30 or more hours per week. If you are an employee, you must forward a copy of the tuition waiver form after it has been signed by the Benefits Department, or a copy of your UNC One Card. The late fee is not waived if you submit your application after the deadline. If you apply using the online application, you must submit the $25 late fee to the Friday Center via check or money order.  You will not be able to submit a credit card payment online.  If you're applying online and wish to pay via credit card, please contact Part-time Classroom Studies to provide a credit card number over the phone.

Types of Applicants

New Applicants

You are considered to be a new applicant if you have never completed a class through Part-time Classroom Studies before. You are also considered to be a new applicant if you have previously completed a class or classes through Part-time Classroom Studies but have had a three-year or longer break in your enrollment. In this instance, your academic record will be reviewed in determining your status for admission. You are also considered to be a new applicant if you applied for admission for a previous term, but did not complete a class through Part-time Classroom Studies.

If you are a new applicant who does not have a bachelor’s degree, you are considered to be a new undergraduate applicant. If you do have a four-year bachelor’s degree, you are considered to be a new postbaccalaureate applicant (transcripts and GRE scores are not required). If you are a non UNC-Chapel Hill applicant and have not officially received your bachelor's degree at the time of your application, you must provide verification of your impending degree (on school letterhead) from your school dean or registrar's office. Your application will not be processed until we receive this information.

You are also considered to be a new undergraduate applicant  if you are a degree-seeking undergraduate who has left Part-time Classroom Studies for at least one semester and taken course work at an institution other than UNC-Chapel Hill during that time. The work done outside UNC will need to be fully reviewed in determining your status for admission.

Readmission Applicants

You are considered to be a readmission applicant  if you have completed a class or classes through Part-time Classroom Studies during the past three years but not during the preceding fall or spring semester. (You are an exception to this rule if you are a degree-seeking undergraduate applicant who has taken courses outside UNC-Chapel Hill, as described above.) If you are a postbaccalaureate applicant applying for readmission to Part-time Classroom Studies, apply using the online application form with no application fee. If you are an undergraduate Part-time Classroom Studies student, you must reapply through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions (see below for the application process).

The Application Process

The online application for spring 2015 (postbaccalaureate applicants) will be back online October 1.

The application process varies according to your status:

  • If you are a new undergraduate applicant, contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions (919-966-3621) for information on applying to Part-time Classroom Studies, or apply online using the online application form (see How to Apply). If you are a former UNC-Chapel Hill undergraduate who did not complete your degree, contact Undergraduate Admissions for information on readmission.
  • If you are a new postbaccalaureate applicant or readmission applicant, apply using the online application form. To begin your application, you must first create a UNC Guest ID. (If you have previously created a Guest ID or have an active Onyen, please log in with those credentials.)

If you claim to be a North Carolina resident for tuition purposes, you must fill out an additional form. See Residency.

Once you are admitted as a Part-time Classroom Studies student, view the Student Orientation and download a PDF copy of the Student Handbook, which contains the information on this website.
