The Birth-Kindergarten program is accepting applications through March 14, 2023.
The application process for the Birth-Kindergarten program is administered through the School of Education (not the Graduate School) through an online admission application through which all application materials are submitted.
Applicants are responsible for monitoring their application status and ensuring that their application — including the application fee, letters of recommendation, transcripts — is complete by the application deadline.
Your application will be reviewed after the complete application is submitted and the application fee is received. By submitting an application to UNC-Chapel Hill, consent is granted to university staff to obtain any additional or missing information as needed, including campus safety information.
o One unofficial complete transcript from each university attended must be uploaded within the application. Please do not mail transcripts as part of your admission application; we only accept unofficial uploads for application evaluation. If you are offered admission, one official transcript for each university attended will be required prior to the first day of the term.
Two letters of recommendation. The email address of three recommenders will be required within the application for electronic submission. Additional recommenders can be added to the application prior to submission.
Personal Statement. (Describe your professional background and your rationale for obtaining an add-on licensure.)
Transcripts from all colleges attended (GPA 3.0 preferred; 2.75 minimum). Please do not mail transcripts as part of your admission application; we only accept unofficial uploads for application evaluation. If you are offered admission, one official transcript for each university attended will be required prior to the first day of the term.
Paying the application fee
A non-refundable $90 application fee is required for each program to which you apply. You may pay your application fee online by credit card or by mailing a check or money order made payable to School of Education. Applications that arrive without the required application fee will remain on file, unprocessed, pending receipt of the application fee. If someone is paying the application fee for you, please ask him or her to include your name as the intended applicant when they submit the check or money order.
