Academic Planning


The College of Arts & Sciences Advising Mission

We recognize academic advising to be critical to the educational experience and student success.  We value academic advising as a shared responsibility with students.  Advising serves to develop and enrich students' educational plans in ways that are consistent with their personal values, goals, and career paths, preparing them for a lifetime of learning in a global society.    

Planning Tools

The Undergraduate Catalogue lists the degree requirements for a student's program of study.

A degree audit is a tool located on your Seanet account to help you monitor your progress towards degree completion. 

Seanet is the system you will use to register for courses.

  • Undergraduate Catalogue

    The Undergraduate Catalogue is published online each academic year to include important University related information for students.  It includes the requirements of all the majors, minors and certificate programs offered at the University.  Previous catalogues can be accessed by selecting the appropriate year from the drop down menu at the top right. More detailed information about the catalogue can be found here.  

  • Degree Audit

    A degree audit is a web based tool to help students and advisors monitor a student's progress towards degree completion.  The system looks at the degree requirements from the UNCW official catalogue, and any coursework completed and in-progress, to produce an easy-to-read degree audit. The degree audit is divided into block requirements of how courses count toward degree requirements. Checkboxes exist within each block to easily outline what courses and requirements are complete or in-progress.  

    • Degree Works is the degree audit system for students with catalogue years starting in fall 2016.   
    • u.achieve is the degree audit system for students with catalogue years prior to fall 2016.
