Early Registration Tutorial

UNCW Early Registration


Welcome to UNCW! This website is an online advising tutorial for creating your first semester schedule. This tutorial will help you learn about general education requirements (University Studies), first-year seminar, and the online registration system. We expect new students to complete this online advising tutorial for a richer academic advising experience.

Step 1

Click on every link on the left navigation. Watch all videos and read the information.

Step 2

Students who signed up for their Orientation session by November 21, 2016, can register for tutorial BEFORE Orientation. Starting November 28, 2016 at 1pm until December 2, 2016 at 3pm, students can sign up for up to 16 hours of courses for the fall semester. You will register for real courses for next semester, but you can always change your schedule at Orientation.

One video has the Registration PIN that you will need to register for courses. The Registration PIN is the password needed to be able to register. We expect you to complete this course and register for courses early for the best academic advising experience during Orientation.

Students not meeting the November 21, 2016 deadline will ONLY be able to sign up for courses at Orientation.


At orientation, advisors will review your schedules to make sure your courses are appropriate. We can always make changes to your schedule during your advising session at orientation.

If you have questions about any of this information after completing Step 1, you will be able to contact an advisor. If you have questions during Early Registration, an advisor will be on call from:

  • November 28-December 1, 2016 from 1:00pm-5:00pm
  • December 2, 2016 from 1:00pm-3:00pm
