First-Year Admission - Deadlines & Applying
UNCW offers two concrete deadlines for applications. Applications are not reviewed or evaluated until they become complete (the application and all credentials have been received).
- Early Action (Non-Binding)- November 1
Applicants will receive a decision on or around January 20.
- Regular Decision - February 1
Applicants will receive a decision on or around April 1.
Official admission decisions are communicated via US Mail and can be accessed in a student's SeaLevel account 10 days after the letter has been mailed. No admission decision will be given in-person, via E-mail or over the phone.
