Student Success

Share your Story With us!

The 49er Finish Program is looking for students to share their story as part of our Adult Student Journey & Success Story feature series through the Office of Adult Students and Evening Services (OASES). We use these stories on our marketing materials and website, and find that each story has a unique way of inspiring prospective 49er Finish students and the Charlotte community. 

If you've graduated or are still enrolled, your story matters! And we want to be able to share it. If interested, we hope you'll consider completing the steps below to continue the process so we can share with others how appreciated you are as a 49er!

1. We ask you to access the following link to the story survey. You will be prompted to login with your UNCC credentials and the survey has questions that will guide us in developing your story. If you can't answer all of the questions, don't worry! Your story is still valuable. Just answer as many as you can.
2. Once the survey is complete, hit submit. We'll receive it and compile the responses into a story form. Once we do this, we'll e-mail you to review it and approve. Your story will not be shared without your approval first!
3. If you selected the box to e-mail your own photo, please e-mail it to If you choose to have us take your photo, I will contact you with a time to coordinate that.
If you would rather tell your story in person or over the phone instead of online, we can arrange for that too! Just send an e-mail to and she'll coordinate a time for you to meet or chat!

Once the above steps are completed and the story is approved, you have the opportunity to choose if your story will be featured on our website and newsletter. You can ensure this by selecting the "yes" option on the final disclosure question on the survey.

We want you to know that we greatly appreciate your willingness to share your story with us and fellow 49ers! If you have any questions or concerns as you complete the survey or about our mission with this project, please let us know.
