Will you have family members attending? If not, please do not enter them on your registration form.
You will be charged for each name added

Registration Help

Please note - all reservations are made under the student's name and student ID number by following the instructions below. Reservations for family members are made at the same time as the student. After the initial reservation has been submitted, if you would like to add another person to the reservation, you must submit your request in writing along with your payment per additional person. This payment must be paid by check or money order and mailed to Transition Programs - 601 S. College Rd. - Wilmington, NC 28403-5997. Make sure to write the Student's name and ID number on the check.

Please note - An Orientation date can be changed only once, and only if the session that you want to move into is open.

Orientation Waitlist
(Summer Freshman Sessions Only)

If your desired session is full, you will have the option to request to be added to our waitlist. You must register for an open Orientation session in order to be added to our waitlist. If all June sessions are full, you must be signed up for the August session. We will operate on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that if we are unable to reach you, we will move on to the next person on the waitlist as vacancies often occur at the last minute.

If you are registered for August and a June session becomes open, you will be charged the additional June fees ($20 student, $10 per family member).

Please email us if you change your mind and would like to be taken off the waitlist.

Please be patient. Due to the volume of calls, Transition Programs will contact
YOU if a spot has opened up.
