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 www.uncw.edu/orientation 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
A full-time regular-term student is an undergraduate student that is enrolled in 12 or more credit hours of on-campus courses or a graduate student enrolled in 9 or more credit hours of on-campus courses. These students will be billed according to the Campus Rates for tuition and fees for all courses (including extension courses) and not billed at the Extension/Distance Education Rates.
Students enrolled in a combination of campus and extension courses (not meeting the definition of full-time regular-term student) will be billed at campus rates for main campus courses and billed at the extension rates for distance education courses (section 800).
Note: Full-time enrollment status may be determined differently for purposes other than tuition billing; i.e. financial aid.
