Orientation

Welcome, New Seahawks!

Our Orientation program is designed to help you make a smooth transition to UNCW. You will learn what you need to know to make a successful academic and personal adjustment to UNCW.

Class registration, placement testing and information about services provided to students are integral parts of learning about a new place and a new experience. Orientation is also a time for you to become more familiar with our campus and what we have to offer. You will also meet some of your future classmates, friends and faculty.
