What is Pre-Orientation (Pre-O)? Pre-Orientation is an additional opportunity for students to ensure a successful transition to the Carolina campus through a series of activities that assists with establishing a network of peer support and familiarity with important academic, social, and cultural supports.
How do I register? Pre-Orientation will be August 17-20, 2012. You will receive an invitation to register for Pre-O in July. If you do not receive an invitation by then or have any questions, please contact the Diversity and Multicultural Affairs at (919) 843-6086.
How much does it cost to attend Pre-O? There are no fees or charges associated with Pre-Orientation.
What's the difference between Pre-O and Orientation? Both programs enable students to learn more about the Carolina community, however Pre-O specifically targets underrepresented students to prepare them for a successful entry into their first year of college.
If I am attending the August Orientation (for first-year students or transfer students) can I also attend Pre-O? You may participate with Pre-Orientation after you complete your Orientation session. Remember, you must complete Orientation to register for your classes. Please notify us if you are scheduled to do so and we will arrange for a Pre-Orientation Counselor to meet you when your required sessions have concluded.
If I am attending Carolina Kickoff can I also attend Pre-O? Yes. Please notify us if you plan to attend Carolina Kickoff and we will arrange for a Pre-Orientation Counselor to meet you when Carolina Kickoff concludes.
If I attend Pre-O when do I move in to my residence hall/Granville Towers? Arrangements have been made for you to move into your permanent UNC campus housing or Granville Towers on Friday, August 17 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
Can my parents attend Pre-O? Absolutely! We have arranged special sessions for parents to give them an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the Carolina community.
