I’m reading on the fb parent page SOME acceptances went out this morning. Don’t lose hope if you didn’t hear!!! It sounds like this is just a first wave.

My OOS son was also just accepted! Can anyone remind me when & how Honors college applicants are notified? Any hope of merit awards for Honors or OOS students?

My OOS daughter was accepted! I am curious if there are any Merit Scholarships offered? @Broadwaybellemom we have toured the campus twice. It is absolutely beautiful. I am sure she will love it!

There wasn’t merit listed for us. I’m not sure if that means she won’t get it or it will come at a later date. The other UNC system school she was accepted to also didn’t have it listed in the acceptance letter.

My OOO DS was accepted earlier this week! No mention of merit in the email. UNCW is one of his top choices.
