Coronavirus Operations

With guidance provided by the UNC System Office and our Chancellor, Graduate School operations are continuing in an online/virtual capacity as a precaution against the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19.  All staff in the Graduate School are available to answer student, faculty and staff questions virtually.  Please use our subject matter email boxes or email our representatives directly.  Additionally, the Center for Graduate Life is offering virtual programming in support of UNC Charlotte graduate students throughout the summer.  

Our top priority is the health of our students, faculty and staff, and we thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate through these challenging times.  If you would like to know more about how the University is preparing for fall 2020, please visit the NinerNationCares website.
