New Student Convocation

All new undergraduate students are required to attend the Day of Convocation. This is an opportunity for incoming students to come together for your first official University event.

The Day of Convocation is a day dedicated to welcome and introduce new undergraduate students (freshmen and transfers) to the UNC Charlotte community.

The day starts with students assembling with the Dean of their colleges for the Dean’s Welcome. Then, students will walk as a group to the Halton Arena to participate in the New Student Convocation ceremony. 

The ceremony will be followed by departmental and collegiate activities.
