What You Should Know About Your Grades
You can view your grades on SeaNet by logging in, clicking Student Services and Financial Aid, choosing Student Records and then Final Grades. You can access grades by semester by selecting a term, or click to view all grades.
Students can view grades as they are posted. Instructors enter them at different times. Students will be able to see their GPA on their academic transcript in SeaNet. GPAs are finalized a few days after grades are posted in SeaNet.
Paper grades are not mailed home. Parents cannot have access to a student's educational records without their written permission, according to the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Learn more about FERPA. Students can authorize the university to release personally identifiable from their educational record to certain individuals by completing Student Consent to Release Educational Records under FERPA form.

Quality Hours means only hours taken at UNCW. Only hours taken at UNCW are used compute the GPA. This includes courses in which the student received grades of "A" through "F" or "WF." However, if a student withdrew from a course within the withdrawal deadline and received a "W," those hours are not used in the GPA calculation.
Transfer Hours means hours earned at institutions other than UNCW that have been accepted by the Office of Admissions for credit towards a UNCW degree. A student must have earned a "C" or better in order for a course to transfer to UNCW.
What You Should Know About Academic Standing
To be included in the Dean's List at the end of each semester, students must meet one of the following criteria:
- Students carrying 12-14 hours must earn a GPA of 3.50 or better, with no grade less than a B
- Students carrying 15 hours or more must earn a GPA of 3.20 or better, with no grade less than a B
- Students participating in the Honors Program carrying 12-14 hours, but are not receiving a grade for the current semester of honors work, shall be eligible if their GPA for the remaining 9-11 hours meets current standards
Please note that Pass/Fail hours are not used in the calculation of Dean's List and that students carrying 11 hours or fewer are not eligible for Dean's List.
Any time a student's cumulative GPA is below a 2.0, they are considered on academic probation. Students whose cumulative GPA is below 2.0 will be limited to enrolling in no more than 14 hours the following semester.
Students should contact their Academic Advisor immediately to arrange an appointment prior to the start of the semester. Advisors can assist by readjusting their class schedules, completing any necessary forms, and referring them to appropriate UNCW resources designed to assist in achieving academic goals.
At the conclusion of the second semester, a student must meet minimum GPA requirements for retention. If these standards are not met, students will be declared academically ineligible to return to the University. Students declared ineligible are allowed to make up deficiencies during the summer sessions. Ineligiblity can be removed only at UNCW.
If a student's GPA for a semester is below 1.0, the student will be dismissed from the University, based on academic policy. A student can appeal to return to UNCW and, if the appeal is granted, they will be allowed to return under specific conditions.
Students should contact their Academic Advisor immediately and look for an email from University College at the end of the semester. The email will outline the steps they must take in order for their appeal to be reviewed.
Please note that there are strict deadlines associated with the appeal process.
Full-time students who earn a 0.0 GPA in any semester will be dismissed from the University and will not be permitted to enroll for two consecutive regular semesters.
Students who fall into this category will be able to attend summer school at UNCW with the submission of a re-enrollment application. If academic eligibility is achieved over the summer, the student will be allowed to return for the fall semester.
Students who have been academically dismissed for the first time may seek an administrative review of mitigating circumstances for possible authorization to enroll in the following semester under an academic contract.
A suspended student may apply for re-enrollment. Re-enrollment is contingent upon the results of a formal Re-Enrollment Review. Information about the re-enrollment process and forms are available online and at the Office of the Registrar.
