Luke Fayard

Transfer Student Coordinator
(919) 445-4890


Hello, current and prospective transfer friends! My name is Luke Fayard, and I’m essentially an academic counselor / coach that is dedicated specifically to transfer students here at UNC.

Despite my misleading title, I don’t work in Admissions and I’m not part of the application process. I’m also not an advisor, which means I can’t help you with major/minor requirements, which classes to take, etc. But, I happily help both current and prospective transfer students with a LOT of other things!

I often get the question, “What kinds of things can I ask you?” My reply… “Try me.” I like to serve as the hub for my transfer friends, meaning that if you don’t know where to go with a question, you come to me. I may not have the answer, but I’ll be happy to help you dig for it. I’m also happy to simply listen. I spend a lot of time with students, just listening to what is going on in their worlds and helping them to navigate it. So, if you have a question / need advice / are wondering if I can help… Try me.

To make an appointment with me, head here: Meeting with Luke   (Prospective students, email me with your week to week availability, if this won’t let you schedule an appt with me.)

You’ll see a few choices: 30 minute zoom, 30 minute in-person, hour zoom, or hour in-person meeting. While I enjoy in-person meetings, I’m happy to meet with you on zoom, if that works best for you.

30 minute meetings: If you have black and white, quicker questions. “What are the resources for Chemistry help?” “How do I get involved in research?” “Who can help me with the internship hunt?” “What are my next steps?” Etc.

If you have longer questions, feel free to schedule an hour meeting. These are more common, especially for new Tar Heels who are trying to get an idea of campus, plan their time in Chapel Hill, etc. If you need advice or help making a decision, this is the way to go. If you’re wondering which meeting length to pick, remember this: I’d rather have too much time with you than not enough, and meeting with y’all is my favorite part of the gig.
