Where to begin?  Right here! 

1. Accept your UNC Admission and pay your enrollment deposit. Please note that if paying by check or money order, those funds must be received and posted by the University before ConnectCarolina will allow you to enroll in classes.
2.  Create an ONYEN
3.  Set up your HeelMail
4.  Accept your admission and pay your enrollment deposit. If you pay by credit card or defer payment by Financial Aid, you’ll be able to  add yourself to the Academic Advising – Fall 2017 Transfer Student Sakai site the next BUSINESS day.  If you pay by check, the check must be received and deposited by Admissions first and then you can add yourself. You’ll complete a module on your Academic Advising – Fall 2017 Transfer Student Sakai site, which will help you understand your transfer credits and register for classes.
5.  Log-in and complete your to-do items in Sakai, most notably watching your Transfer Student Advising module and registering for classes.  If you cannot log-on to Sakai after completing the link in #4, please let us know here so that we can help you troubleshoot.
6. Make an Academic Advising appointment. If you are unable to find an academic advising appointment prior to May 1st, no worries! We have some advisors who have blocked time in their advising calendars just for you! On the Fall 2017 Transfer Student Sakai site, there is an announcement entitled, “Can’t find an academic advising appointment before May?”, which will have information about another way to make an advising appointment.
