New Student & Family Programs does not receive funds from the State or UNC-Chapel Hill. New Student & Family Orientation operates on a self-sustained budget and must cover all related expenses for each participant.
Transfer Student Registration: $75.00
Transfer Family/Guest Registration: $45.00
In order to ensure a successful program for all our participants, participation numbers are confirmed with advising and campus partners well in advance and changing the guaranteed numbers can impact program fees. All sessions are on a first-come, first-served basis. Transfer students attend a one-day program and should plan to be online with orientation from about 9:00 a.m. ET through 6:00 p.m. ET for their session.
