Welcome to Carolina, New Transfer Students!

Welcome to Carolina. We are excited that you will be soon joining us in Chapel Hill. Below you will find videos introducing you to a number of departments and majors on campus.  Under each department listed, you will find links entitled “Fall into your Major” and “Welcome Transfers”

The videos entitled “Fall into your Major” are from Fall 2020. These videos were meant to introduce any student to the department and make connections necessary to get acclimated and aware of what the program could offer. These videos were for any student watching.

The videos entitled “Welcome Transfers” are videos that the department or program made specifically for you.

Thank you for viewing and please connect with academic advising in drop ins or through an appointment to learn more about a major. 

Again, welcome to Carolina and we look forward to connecting soon.
