Incoming Graduate Students

Congratulations to our newest class of Psychology graduate students! Please make sure to note important dates, like the UNC Graduate Student Orientation and the Psychology Graduate Student Orientation.

We recommend that our admitted students review the Graduate School Checklist of what to do after your acceptance!

Don’t forget…

Submit Official Transcripts

Once you have officially accepted your admission, you must request that official transcripts for each post-secondary school attended be sent to UNC Graduate School. You will not be able to register for classes until we receive all of your official transcripts.

This includes all transcripts from colleges, universities, community colleges, summer sessions, or extension programs you have attended since graduating from high school. Academic transcripts uploaded to the online application are considered unofficial and do not fulfill this requirement. (For UNC-Chapel Hill transcripts only, it is not necessary to request official transcripts for coursework or degrees; our office can access your transcript internally.)

Final, official transcripts may be mailed to:

Graduate School
University of North Carolina Chapel Hill
ATTN: Graduate Admissions
200 Bynum Hall | CB #4010
Chapel Hill, NC 27599-4010

Schedule a New Student Meeting

You will receive an email from our Student Services Manager with a request to schedule a meeting to fill out necessary paperwork. If you did not receive an email from us, please contact us at (919) 962-7149.

Register for Courses

At the direction of the Developmental Psychology Program Director, you will be registered in required courses for the Fall. You can access your schedule by logging into the Connect Carolina Student Center.

Update your Student Account

Make sure to access Connect Carolina to complete any outstanding tasks or forms. This may include immunization and health history, financial aid, and loan forms.
