Here are some of the most helpful places and people to seek help from:

  • One first great resource for non-academic issues in your program is your Student Services Manager or Department Manager. For more specific academic questions/issues, consider reaching out to your Director of Graduate Studies.
  • For issues or problems beyond what your department can do for you—try the appropriate Dean of Student Affairs. (Leslie Lerea for those in the Graduate School; the other programs have their own Dean of Student Affairs, too).
  • The Office of the Dean of Students can give student support on a number of different topics. http://deanofstudents.unc.edu/
  • As a reference guide for those enrolled in the Graduate School, the Graduate School Handbook lays out general academic requirements and regulations (e.g., eligibility, assistantships, taking time off).
  • All students at the University are expected to abide by the Honor Code, both in conduct and in academic integrity. More detail can be found here: http://studentconduct.unc.edu/students
