UNC Global to Host Passport Drive Nov. 13-14
October 16, 2019
UNC Global will host its 16th passport drive on Wednesday, Nov. 13 and Thursday, Nov. 14 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in room 4003 of the FedEx Global Education Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Officials from the U.S. Department of State will be on campus both days to accept new and renewal U.S. passport applications. This drive is open to students, faculty, staff and their families.
Over the previous 15 drives, nearly 4,000 new and renewal passport applications have been processed at UNC-Chapel Hill.
“We are thrilled to be able to provide this service to UNC-Chapel Hill students, faculty, staff and their families. It is an easy and stress-free way for our community to obtain the necessary documents needed for international travel and to participate in important global activity, such as research and study abroad,” said Katie Bowler Young, director of Global Relations for UNC Global.
Learn more about required materials and the fees for first-time applications and renewals on the UNC Global website.
