Orientation Registration for January Orientation will open in early October.
You will receive an e-mail to your UNCW e-mail account when registration has opened.

It is very important to check your dates! Many students register for Orientation without considering graduation rehearsals, vacations, and other conflicts.

  • Reservations for Orientation cannot be made until you have paid the $100 enrollment fee. You must wait 24 hours after paying the enrollment deposit to sign-up for orientation.
  • To register follow these instructions:
    • Log-in to your mySeaport with your UNCW username and password. If a student is logging in for the first time their password will be their 8 digit birthdate (i.e. 01011990)
    • Click on the Teal Ticket tab at the top
    • Click on Register for Your Required Orientation
    • You will be brought to the VisualZen Orientation Registration system
    • Follow the prompts, choose your session, and submit payment by the appropriate deadline
    • Immediate payment is not required. However, Orientation registration is not complete and your spot is not secured until payment is received
    • Reminder e-mails will be sent out periodically until payment is received
    • Once completely submitted, students and registered guests will receive a confirmation e-mail
  • We accept MasterCard or Visa

UNCW employees should check with Human Resources about special benefits for faculty, staff and their dependents prior to submitting an Orientation reservation for yourself or your child.
