Disability Parking and Access

Accessible parking is available along South Road (state-issued permit required).  Sorry – we do NOT provide accessibility parking permits for our ceremony.

FedEx Global Education Center has an elevator from the parking garage under the building (ground level) to the location of our ceremony.  Please note that we do not provide wheelchairs.


Graduating seniors MUST register if you play to attend the ceremony so that we have a certificate for you. Each senior’s name will be called, you will walk across the stage and you will receive a Certificate of Congratulations from our Economics Chair, Dr. Andy Yates. Please note that we do NOT give out diplomas. UNC will mail your official diplomas later.
