Prospective UNCW Transfer students have the option of signing up for a campus tour designed exclusively for our Transfer to Teal Students. These tours will take place on select Fridays at 1:00 pm and include an information session from a Transfer Counselor as well as a Transfer Student led tour.
Transfer to Teal tours will resume during the fall 2013 academic year.
Students must sign up via SeaLevel. Upon logging into SeaLevel, please be sure to have identified the date you wish to attend. Once in SeaLevel you will have to select the year, month, day and then 1:00 pm time you wish to attend.
If you are a transfer student and unable to visit at any of our designated Transfer to Teal Friday tours, you are always welcome to sign up and attend a daily tour, please see the information above. If your desired Transfer to Teal Tour is full we may still be able to accommodate you, please email us at UNCWTransfer@uncw.edu.
Saturday Campus Tour Schedule
Throughout the fall and spring semesters, the university will offer campus tours on select Saturday dates. These tours are designed to accommodate guests traveling greater distances or who would otherwise be unable to visit the campus Monday through Friday. The information given on a Saturday Tour will be the same as our daily campus tours.
First Year Saturday Tours
First year Saturday campus tours begin at 10 a.m. The information given on a Saturday Tour will be the same as our daily campus tours.
First Year Saturday tours will resume during the fall 2013 academic year.
Register for Saturday tours the same way you would for a normal weekday tour via SeaLevel. Saturday tours fill up quickly -- so register as early as possible.
Transfer to Teal Saturday Tours
At this time we will not be offering any additional Transfer to Teal Saturday Tours. Transfer to Teal Saturday Tours will resume in the 2013-2014 academic year.
Each student must register for a campus tour. This means if your group includes three prospective students traveling together, each student should register separately.
To register for a campus tour, login to your SeaLevel account and click on "Visit UNCW" on the navigation area on the left of your home page. Then choose "Schedule a Tour" from the drop-down menu. Finally, select the date you wish to visit and input the required information. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail on file with your SeaLevel account confirming your visit. Please be sure to check your Spam folder if you do not see this confirmation right away.
As a convenience to our guests, if a particular tour date or time is full (or a tour is not being offered on that day) SeaLevel will not allow you to choose that date/time.
What to Expect During Your Visit
Campus tours will last approximately one-and-a-half to two hours. Your tour will begin with a 20-30 minute information session with an admission counselor, which serves as a brief overview and introduction to the university and an in-depth look at the admission process and requirements. A walking tour of campus will begin immediately after this information session and cover all academic and student life aspects of campus.
Since all of our campus tours follow a predetermined route, you are encouraged to make appointments for before or after your tour with any other departments of interest before arriving on campus (e.g. a particular academic department of interest, Scholarships & Financial Aid, Athletics, the Honors Scholars Program, etc.).
Touring On-Campus Housing
UNCW policy prohibits campus tours from going inside of our residential facilities. Under no circumstances will a tour group or guest be permitted to tour on-campus housing. For this reason, you may want to view photos, video, and floor plans of the various residential locations prior to your visit on the Housing & Residence Life web page. Housing tours will be offered on our open house program for prospect juniors and seniors, Just Juniors and Seahawk Saturday.
If you are unable to visit campus during our regular business hours, you may elect to print the following PDF documents and tour the campus on your own:

- Self-Guided Driving Residence Hall Tour Directions (PDF)
Note: You will not be permitted to enter any on-campus housing.
