Coronavirus UpdateUNCW Campus Tours Canceled 

UNCW Office of Admissions has made the difficult decision to cancel all Campus Tours through June 12.  Each week we will decide if future dates will also be canceled.  Should additional tours be canceled, students will be notified via email.  While we are disappointed we will not be able to host visitors on campus during this time, this decision is consistent with decisions being made around community and campus events in response to COVID-19 virus concerns. For more information and ongoing updates about the University’s response to COVID-19, please visit 


Campus Tour Schedule

The ideal way to experience the UNCW campus is with a campus tour, guided by our enthusiastic UNCW Student Ambassadors, Seahawk Admissions Network for Diversity (SAND) members and Transfer to Teal Guides.

During the academic year (August-May), tours are offered Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 10am and 2pm and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11am and 2pm. During the summer (May-August), tours are offered Mondays and Wednesdays at 10am and 2pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11am and 2pm, and Fridays at 10am only. Additionally, we offer various Saturday tours throughout the fall and spring semesters.

Tours are only offered when classes are in session; tours are not offered on holidays. If a date is not available, you will not be able to select it when signing up via SeaLevel. Click here to sign up for a tour today!

UNCW Holiday Schedule | University Calendar


Register for a Campus Tour

Each student must register for a campus tour. This means if your group includes three prospective students traveling together, each student should register separately.

To register for a campus tour, login to your SeaLevel account and click on "Visit UNCW" on the navigation area on the left of your home page. Then choose "Schedule a Tour" from the drop-down menu. Finally, select the date you wish to visit and input the required information. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail on file with your SeaLevel account confirming your visit. Please be sure to check your Spam folder if you do not see this confirmation right away.

Due to space limitations, if a particular tour date or time is full (or a tour is not being offered on that day) SeaLevel will not allow you to choose that date/time.

Transfer to Teal Tours

Prospective UNCW transfer students have the option of signing up for a Transfer to Teal Friday campus tour designed exclusively for transfer students. These tours will take place on select Fridays at 1:00 pm and include an information session from a Transfer Counselor as well as a Teal Guide led tour of campus. Students must sign up via SeaLevel.

If you are a transfer student and unable to visit at any of our designated Transfer to Teal Friday tours, you are always welcome to sign up and attend a daily tour, please see the information above. If your desired Transfer to Teal Tour is full we may still be able to accommodate you, please e-mail us at

Group Tours

Schools and other organizations wishing to request a reservation for a group tour may do so by completing our School Group Tour Request Form. Requests for group tours must be submitted at least three weeks in advance. Please only submit the School Group Tour Request Form if your party is 10 or larger. If smaller, please register each student individually through SeaLevel. Click here for more information on group visits.

Please note we do not currently offer group tours to elementary or middle schools.

Saturday Tours

In addition to our daily campus tours on weekdays, the Office of Admissions offers campus tours on select Saturdays throughout the academic year. Please review the calendar online your Sealevel account.

Interested in learning more about the Honors College? Individual visits to campus can be scheduled any day that classes are in session.

The Honors College visitation program is open from mid-August through the last week of May each year. Please email if you have questions.

Visit the College of Health and Human Services

The College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) is home to undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degree programs in allied health.  If you are considering a career in an allied health field, please feel free to visit campus and meet with a CHHS Student Success Advisor.  There is a two-step process before scheduling an appointment.  First, please review the degree program webpages, as program information, admissions details, course references and academic plans can be found there.  The program website contains all the information that will be shared.  The program webpages can be found HERE. Currently, the CHHS SSC and CHHS departmental offices are unable to see prospective students. The recommendation for prospective students is to continue to speak to a UNCW Admissions Counselor, visit program webpages and to consult, when applicable, with the UNCW University College (the first academic home for all first-year and transfer students with less than 24 transferable credits). Graduate Students (Master's and Doctoral Level) should speak to the Graduate School or contact the graduate program coordinator directly.
