Transition Programs


Family Member Orientation Registration

Check your dates! Your Orientation session will be the same as your student's. Orientation sessions 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.

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

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. No refund will be given if we do not receive your form before your reservation is made.
