Prospective Students

We invite prospective students to contact Disability Services with questions about services and accommodations. If you need accommodations campus tours, Explore Open Houses, or SOAR Orientation events, please contact Disability Services at least two weeks prior to the event in order to request those accommodations. Depending on the type of accommodation(s) you request, you may need to provide disability documentation as support. For more information contact us at 704-687-0040 or

Important Information about SOAR

Students who plan to attend SOAR (Student Orientation, Advising and Registration) may need accommodations that are more extensive. This program assists you with your transition to UNC Charlotte, and allows you to meet with an academic advisor and register for your fall semester classes. You will also learn important information about the University and all of the services in place to promote your success. SOAR is a busy two-day event, which includes an overnight stay in University residence halls. If you think you need accommodations in order to participate in SOAR, contact Disability Services and SOAR Staff at least two weeks prior to your SOAR dates. 

DS Staff are also available to meet with prospective students to discuss the registration process, accommodations, and campus accessibility.
