All applicants should review the comprehensive information available online as well as the FAQ for the relevant region PRIOR to starting an application.
Complete and submit the FLAS@UNC Application by 11:59 p.m. EST on January 31, 2018.
Please carefully review the information relevant to the particular region of the language to which you are applying. Further, applicants should review region-specific FAQs and guidance available on each center’s website.
Consult the FLAS@UNC table to determine the most appropriate center. Questions about eligibility or the program should be directed to the most appropriate FLAS coordinator.
NOTE: Applicants not yet admitted, or those external to UNC should enter a zero (“0”) in fields specific to UNC (i.e. PID, Onyen).
Applicants must have their skills evaluated by a language instructor if they have any prior experience in the language of application. Evaluators complete the FLAS@UNC LANGUAGE EVALUATION FORM and provide it to applicants to upload into the online application. The language evaluation is not confidential. You can download the form here and send it to your evaluator. We recommend that you contact your former language instructor to complete the evaluation. If this is not possible, a UNC faculty member who teaches the language would be qualified to conduct the evaluation.
The application requires two recommendations. The system will send your recommenders a reference form to complete electronically.
Please contact the recommenders in advance and remind them of the recommendation deadline of February 14, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. EST
Applications are reviewed by the appropriate center and notifications will be sent to the email used to register for the online application system, typically within six weeks of the deadline.
FLAS committees review all proposals and rank them using a weighted scale that considers academic merit, demonstrated financial need, and the extent to which the proposed study or use of the language matches Title VI priorities.
All questions about the program and your application status should be directed to the most appropriate FLAS coordinator(s).
