Apply for a Mentor

We are so happy that you have decided to continue your education with us and we can’t wait to meet you! We want you to be successful in everything you do at UNCW. One of the things you can do to help yourself be successful is take advantage of special programming designed just for transfer students.

Every transfer student who requests a mentor will be paired with an upperclassman, based on common factors including major, minor and interests.
