New Freshman and Transfer Students

Applicants for admission as new freshmen and transfers must apply to the Admissions Office.

Orientation and Registration

All new degree-seeking students (freshmen and transfers) must attend orientation. In your admissions acceptance packet, you will receive orientation reservation information. The purpose of orientation is to acquaint students with academic requirements and campus services. During orientation you will meet with an academic advisor, take placement tests as needed, and register for classes. If you have any questions, please refer to our website at or call (910) 962-3089.

Transfer students and freshmen with advanced placement or transfer credit can obtain their transfer credit evaluation on-line. Login to SeaNet and click on "Academic Transcript."

Visiting summer students do not need to attend orientation. Students should check their Registration Status on SeaNet to see their time ticket.

Main Campus vs. Extension Tuition and Fees

Tuition and fees are charged according to campus of the course (main campus or extension) and not student classification. When using the SeaNet registration system, please keep in mind that Extension courses are courses with section numbers 800 or higher and a campus of "EXT." Only these sections of courses are billed at the Extension tuition rates which are calculated on a per credit hour basis. All other section numbers are considered on-campus courses and are billed as such. Tuition and fee rates for both on campus and Extension courses can be found on the Student Accounts website. Ultimately, it is the student's responsibility to be aware of these differences and the impact they have on tuition charges.
