The linked courses offered through the Science & Engineering Learning Community are only for the fall semester of your freshman year. Through the learning community, students often develop their own supportive network of peers and voluntarily decide to continue taking classes together.
No. Students must register for all three courses associated with the Learning Community to be part of the program.
The Science & Engineering Learning Community will accept a total of 120 incoming first-year students (24 in each area of interest) on a first-come, first-served basis to include a well-rounded group of applicants. The requirements to participate are admission to UNCW, an interest in one of the science or engineering areas, and a willingness to be an active positive member of a learning community.
No. For the inaugural year, the Science & Engineering Learning Community is a non-residential learning community. This means you can live on-campus in regular freshman housing (non-specialized housing for other programs) or you can live off-campus.
No. All of these great programs share common courses which will conflict with courses offered through this community. If you are interested in more than one program, you are encouraged to fill out different applications and make a decision on which will benefit you most. We encourage you to speak with the coordinators of the various programs to gain more information to help you make your decision.
The answer to this question would depend on the practice and/or competition schedules of the specific team and whether or not those times would conflict with the set times of the learning community. If interested, we encourage you to apply and indicate you are a member of an athletic team. When we review applications, we can speak with Athletics regarding the schedule to determine if you can do both programs.
