Academic Support Program for Student Athletes
The University of North Carolina Academic Support Program assists student-athletes in exploring their interests and abilities, enjoying a broad educational experience, and reaching or exceeding their academic goals.
The program is located in the Loudermilk Center for Excellence, a 150,000-square-foot facility that opened in the fall of 2011 and serves all of UNC's nearly 800 student-athletes across all 28 varsity sports. Within Loudermilk, the John W. Pope Student-Athlete Academic Support Center provides classrooms for teaching and tutoring, advanced computer technology, a writing lab, reading rooms and office space.
During the 2011-12 academic year, 290 Carolina student-athletes made the ACC Academic Honor Roll, which requires a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 for the year. In the fall of 2011, 129 student-athletes made the Dean's List, and 124 did so in the spring of 2012.
