Resources for UNC Students

From the University Leaders:

  • The University has provided guidance on emergency grading accommodations for the Spring 2020 term. You can find more information on pass/fail options and frequently asked questions here. You are encouraged to speak with an academic advisor about any impact your choices might have for success in future courses or admissions to future programs. Academic Advisors are available to communicate with undergraduate students remotely.
  • UNC’s Learning Center has created a page to help you keep learning and finish strong this semester. The site also includes helpful strategies tailored to address specific needs and support your academic success at Carolina.
  • Students with learning differences and disabilities can find support and resources related to remote learning from the Office of Accessibility Resources and Service. You can also report if you are having a digital accessibility issue.
  • Campus Health remains open with staffing available to offer limited in-person appointments for acute illness. Please only visit Campus Health after calling first (919-966-2281) and scheduling an appointment.
  • Mental health can be a challenge during this global health emergency. These are stressful times and it makes sense to be anxious. There are things you can do to help yourself. Counseling and Psychological Services is open and making appointments via Zoom.
  • If you have any technical issues please visit or call 919-962-HELP to submit a request for support. ITS has great tips for attending class in Zoom.
