Transition Programs


Incoming Freshman Orientation Registration

 Check your dates! Your Orientation session can be changed only if space is available in another session. You will be responsible for any increase in fees at the time the change is made.

Online Reservation System Directions

Web reservations are the most expedient way to make your reservation. Do not use a phone or tablet. Online reservations are processed immediately and you receive confirmation at the time you make the reservation. Online reservations require a payment with MasterCard or Visa at the time you make your reservation.

To register on-line:

  1. Log into mySeaport.
  2. Login with your UNCW credentials (if you do not know this information, contact the Technology Assistance Center at 910.962.4357)
  3. Click on the Teal Ticket tab.
  4. Click on the "Register for Your Required Orientation"
  5. Follow the instructions to select your Orientation date and make your on-line payment.
  6. If a session is full, you will not be able to select it.

Please note - an Orientation date can be changed only if the session that you want to move into is open. If there is a price increase because of the change, payment is required before the change can be made. If a desired session is full, sign back in to the VisualZen Orientation system and check regularly before the deadline to check availability.

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. Click here to follow the process to complete an Undergraduate Orientation Fee Waiver. No refund will be given if we do not receive your form before your reservation is made.

Early Registration for Classes

Do you want to be able to sign up for classes before Orientation? If so, please sign up for Orientation by May 2017 and you will have the opportunity to complete early registration. University College can provide additional information on early registration.
