I need a letter to certify that I am a student (i.e. for insurance).
You can print your own enrollment verification certificates through SeaNet. After signing on, follow the links to "Student Services & Financial Aid" and then to "Student Records." Enrollment verifications (or certification letters) may also be obtained in the Office of the Registrar in person or by a signed, written request.
NOTE: All enrollment certifications regarding student loan deferments are handled by the National Student Clearinghouse. See below.
I am a lender and would like verification that a borrower is a current student.
All of our enrollment certifications for lenders are done through the National Student Clearinghouse. You may contact them at 703-742-7791 for more information.
Where can I get a Transient Study form?
The domestic transient study forms are now obtained online and the international study abroad forms are obtained through International Programs.
For more information, visit Instructions for Transient Study.
I have a hold on my account. Where do I take care of this?
You can view information about your holds on SeaNet.
I received a notice regarding a Tuition Surcharge. What is this?
The Tuition Surcharge applies to students that have attempted more than 140 credit hours, including repeated courses and transfer credit. For more information, go to our Tuition Surcharge page. Also, read the notice carefully, as it might simply be a warning that you are that you are approaching the 140 credit hour limit.
The "PIN" that is requested on the SeaNet login page limits access to your SeaNet account to only you. Think of this PIN as a password. Every few months, you will be required to change this PIN. If you forget your login PIN, you can call the Technology Assistance Center (2-HELP) and ask that your PIN be reset. The "alternate PIN" is requested during a SeaNet registration session. The alternate PIN is intended to enforce advising, therefore you will get your alternate PIN from your academic advisor. You are prompted for your alternate PIN only once; the first time you register for a particular term.
If a class is full or otherwise restricted, the instructor can place a registration override into the system to allow a particular student register for that class. The instructor enters the student's ID number and the type of override through SeaNet. The student must then register for the class, before the drop/add deadline, through SeaNet.
This type of error generally means that some combination of the degree program, concentration (if applicable) and/or catalog year is invalid. The student should contact the Office of the Registrar for assistance to fix this error. If the program requires a concentration and one hasn't been chosen yet, the student will be asked to provide that information; this may require input from their advisor.
Application for graduation must be submitted through the Student Records menu in SeaNet on or before the dates specified in the university calendar. Additional information is available at http://www.uncw.edu/reg/graduation-deadlinesApp.htm
