Make the Most of Your Summer 

Summer visiting students (those currently enrolled at another institution) may enroll in classes at UNCW for Summer School only. 

 If you wish to continue your enrollment as a visiting student from Summer School into the fall or spring semesters, you will need to apply as a Permission student.  If you wish to continue your enrollment beyond summer as a degree-seeking student, you will need to apply as a Transfer student.  

How To Apply

  • You can apply online through the College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC).  If you have created an account with CFNC.org or NCResidency.org, you may use your account name and password to access the UNCW application.  If you do not already have an account, you will be required to create one before applying.

  • Submit a transient study form OR an unofficial transcript from the current or most recent institution you have attended
    The transient study form can also be substituted for a course approval form, or written permission from your Academic Advisor that the course you intend to take at UNCW will transfer to your home institution.
  • The Summer Visiting application will close on June 15th. 


Summer I registration deadline - May 24th 

Summer II registration deadline - July 6th

Academic Advising & Course Registration

Academic advising is not available for summer visiting students. If the course you wish to enroll in has pre-requisites, it is the student's responsibility to work with the Department to obtain the necessary override to enroll in the course.

Upon admission to UNCW as a summer visiting student, students may then register for classes by accessing SeaNet. If you have questions about registration, please contact the Office of the Registrar at NDRegistrar@uncw.edu.
