Chapel Hill Reports Blacks Make Up 9 Percent of Students Admitted Early

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has reported admissions results for students who applied before its early deadline of November 3. Chapel Hill’s first decision admissions program is not binding.

The university reports that it received a record 13,692 applicants for its first deadline program. Last year there were more than 21,500 total applicants during the entire admissions cycle.

About 35 percent of all applicants were accepted for admission. Among the accepted group, 9 percent are African Americans. Blacks make up 10.8 percent of this year’s freshman class.

A student who applied before the second deadline of January 15 will be notified of the university’s admission decision in March.
