Information for Undergraduates

Undegraduate students are required to attend Campus Life Experience (CLE) events each semester to meet the IDEAs in Action curriculm requirements for graduation. Heel Life is the primary tool for student involvement at UNC beyond the classroom. You can create, find, and join student organizations. You can also create or register for campus events, including those that are approved for CLE credit.

  1. Find and Register for a CLE approved event on Heel Life.
  2. Attend the event and make sure you "sign in." The sign in method may vary, but most events will provide a QR code on-site that you scan with your phone and login with your Onyen and Password to record your attendance.
  3. After the event, complete the Campus Life Experience Submission Form.
  4. Wait 2 business days for your submission to be reviewed and acknowledged on the ConnectCarolina TarHeel Tracker.

Can I Opt Out of the Campus Life Experience Requirement if I Am a Part-Time Student?

Part-time students are still required to participate in Campus Life Experience; however, they will only need to take 1 CLE requirement per semester if they are enrolled as part-time for that semester.

How Many CLEs Do I Need to Complete?

The Tar Heel Tracker (THT) on ConnectCarolina will update on how many CLEs students must complete per semester. Every semester enrolled as a full-time student will be two CLEs and one CLE for part-time students.

When Will The Tar Heel Tracker Show Updated CLEs?

The Tar Heel Tracker will update overnight once the student's CLE form has been approved. The Tar Heel Tracker will only show the required CLEs per semester, depending on the student's enrollment status. Full-time students will show up for two CLEs and one for part-time. If a student attends more than what is required per semester, the Tar Heel Tracker will roll over to the next semester.

I attended a CLE Event but It Is Not Showing In My Tar Heel Tracker

Make sure you have submitted the Campus Life Experience Submission Form in Heel Life to meet your CLE requirements. If you have submitted a form and received an approval notification but The Tar Heel Tracker has not been updated, please reach out to us at [email protected]

Will I Be Able To Attend a Campus Life Experience Event More Than Once for Additional Requirements?

No, requirements for a CLE event will only count one time for that event. Students are welcome to attend the event additional times, but they will only receive the requirements for the first time. 

Does Attending an Athletic Event (Like a Football Game) Fulfill the Campus Life Experience Requirement?

Athletic events do not count towards the requirements. Required events will include performances, talks, panels, workshops, etc.

Will I Be Able to Choose Which CLE Events I Would Like to Count Towards My Requirements?

Yes, students are welcome to attend as many CLE events of their choosing, but before the end of the semester, they need to pick CLE events from their attendance that they would like to count towards their requirements.

I Forgot To Check In at The Event To Track My Attendance, Can I Still Get My CLE?

Students who did not check in at an event must contact the event's host to confirm their attendance. Once they have confirmed and uploaded the attendance, students may submit their CLE form. If students are unsure who to contact, please email [email protected] for support.

It's the End of the Semester and I Did Not Complete My Required CLEs in Time

If a student has not completed their CLE requirements for the semester, they will be able to complete them along with new requirements during the next semester.

Will I Be Able to Attend More CLE Events Than What Is Required for Me During That Semester

Yes, students are welcome to attend as many CLE events as they'd like for the semester. Students will be able to accumulate CLEs even if they're already met their requirements.

Example: If a student completes four CLEs during the fall semester while only requiring two, the additional CLEs will roll over into the spring semester as long as they meet all requirements.
