Transfer students are students that have graduated from high school or completed the General Educational Development (GED) test or an Adult High School diploma and are attending, or have previously attended, either a two- or four-year college/university.
In order to be considered for admission at UNC Wilmington, a prospective transfer student under the age of 24, must meet North Carolina's minimum course requirements. If they do not, then the student would need to complete additional coursework to be considered for admission.
Students seeking information on transfer equivalencies from other colleges and universities may find the following links helpful.
- The Transfer Guide for North Carolina Community Colleges provides a valuable source of information and course equivalents for students transferring from one of the 17 North Carolina State Colleges.
- For students transferring from schools, other than North Carolina Community Colleges, may find an unofficial evaluation of courses and credit in the UNCW Transfer Equivalencies database.
Non-Degree Seeking Admission
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 students (those currently enrolled at another institution) are allowed to attend classes at UNCW for Summer School only.
Special Undergraduate Admission
Students who have graduated from a four-year accredited college or university and want to take undergraduate classes, 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).
