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?
