Non-Degree Seeking Admission - Overview

Please determine which category below best describes your academic situation, as specific requirements and procedures are provided for each category. If you feel none of these categories fit your circumstances, please contact the Office of Admissions.

Permission (Fall and Spring ONLY)

Students from other colleges or universities, who intend to return to their home institution, may attend UNCW as permission (visiting) students in the fall or spring semesters. A student may only attend as a permission student for two consecutive semesters (not including summer sessions).

Summer Visiting (Summer School ONLY)
Summer visiting students (those currently enrolled at another institution) are allowed to attend classes at UNCW for Summer School only.

If you wish to continue your enrollment from Summer School into the fall or spring semesters as a permission student please refer to the section above. 

Special Undergraduate

Students who have graduated from a four-year accredited college or university and want to take undergraduate classes on-campus (or at one of our extension sites), but do not want to earn a second degree are classified as special undergraduates (If you would like to earn a second degree, you must apply as a transfer student).

This application option is also available for students who need to take classes toward completion of teacher certification or licensure requirements on-campus (or at an extension site).
