Transfer Admissions


Who is a Transfer Student?

If you have graduated from high school, have completed the General Educational Development (GED) test, or an Adult High School diploma, and are attending, or have previously attended, either a two- or four-year college/university you will apply to UNCW as a transfer student.  If you have not yet graduated from high school you will apply as a first-year student, even if you have attended a two- or four- year college as a dual enrolled student.  If you have not yet graduated from high school but are enrolled in a North Carolina Cooperative Innovative High School, you may have the option to apply as a transfer student.  Please see the following website for more information: 

How do I apply?

Students may apply online to UNCW via CFNC (online)This will require that you register for an account with CFNC.  In an effort to protect our environment, we no longer print any paper applications. 

Will my credit transfer?

When can I visit UNCW?

The health and safety of our campus community is our first priority. In order to encourage social distancing and minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our community, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions has cancelled all tour-guide led campus tours and in-person admissions information sessions. We are not able to provide a specific date as to when tour-guide led visits or in-person admissions information sessions will resume. Please visit our Campus Visitation website for more information on self-guided tour options.

Please visit the links to the right and feel free to contact us with any questions you have. Our Transfer Team takes pride in working with you and we look forward to helping you Transfer to Teal!
