  1. Acceptance into one of the UNC schools
  2. Acceptance with Junior status
  3. Fulfillment all of the undergraduate General Educations requirements
  4. Fulfillment of pre-requisite courses for the baccalaureate major

* Students will still have to fulfill the school’s graduation requirements such as Foreign Language and Health. Students applying for competitive programs are not guaranteed acceptance into the program.

Many NC private schools have signed the ICAA which allows students the same guarantees as the UNC Public School System.
