http://UNC Essay SupplementsUNC requires students to answer two out of four essay prompts.  Responses should be between 200-250 words each.

UNC uses the essay responses to make first-year admissions decisions but also used to determine whether a student will receive merit-based scholarships.

 The four prompts are:

  • Tell us about a peer who has made a difference in your life.
  • What do you hope will change about the place where you live?
  • What is one thing that we don’t know about you that you want us to know?
  • What about your background, or what perspective, belief, or experience, will help you contribute to the education of your classmates at UNC?
