UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHAPEL HILL Office of Undergraduate Admissions Position Description: Admissions Representative The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is the first official point of contact for all students seeking admission as undergraduates to any of the colleges or schools within the University, whether for full- or part-time study. As the admitting office charged with enrolling the first-year and transfer classes of the University, the department employs the staff responsible for recruiting students (both domestic and foreign) and applying policies and procedures consistent with those adopted by the Board of Trustees. Further, the office provides academic counseling, sponsors hundreds of events annually to enhance the image of the University among its broad constituencies, and is the only admitting office authorized to award academic degree credit to undergraduates. The work of the office is closely scrutinized by students and their families; by secondary-school teachers and administrators; by lawmakers at the local, state, and national level; by University faculty, staff, and students; and by local, regional, and national media. The work environment in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions is cordial, fast-paced, and deadline-driven. Staff members work collaboratively on projects and goals while still exercising a high degree of independent judgment. Office conduct requires a good sense of public decorum, since thousands of prospective students and their families visit Jackson Hall each year.
