Transition Programs


Parent & Family Orientation

There is a separate program for adult family members that runs concurrently with the new student Orientation sessions in January, May, June and August. During the Parent and Family Orientation Program, there are information sessions designed especially for family members, as well as sessions that families may attend with their students. However, because of space limitations and other concerns, several of the student sessions such as academic advising and registration must be attended by students only.

All registrations are made under the student's name and student ID number by following registration instructions via their Teal Ticket. Changes can be made and guests can be added at any time before the deadline. Students simply have to log back in the system. Please note - registering guests does incur additional fees per guest and reservations will not be complete until payment is submitted.

Spanish Translation Services

Students and families desiring a Spanish translation of the Orientation materials can download the New Student Orientation guide on the UNCW Guide App and click on the Español tab. Translations have been provided for Family sessions.
