UNCW offers students the opportunity to enroll in classes for credit as non-degree seeking students.



You can enroll and attend a class without receiving academic credit, however you will have to regular tuition and fees for audited classes. Senior citizens age 65 and older can enroll to audit courses tuition-free on a space-available basis.

For information regarding audit fees, contact the Cashier’s Office at 910.962-3147.


If you’re 50 and over check out the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute for course offerings. New classes offered each semester.
