Information for Future Tar Heels

Welcome Future Tar Heels! You are making an excellent choice in deciding to attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our student-athletes have the opportunity to pursue an education at the nation’s first public university and one of the best academic institutions in the country. They also have the opportunity to develop as leaders, contribute to campus and community, and compete at the highest level.

The Academic Support Program for Student-Athletes provides many services (ASPSA Services) that support student-athletes throughout their entire academic careers at UNC. In your first year, you will take part in the MAP (My Academic Plan) program which provides each student with an individualized plan for success. These plans will be tailored towards your specific tutorial and educational needs to match your learning preferences and academic preparedness.
