The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams
Intelligence plus character, that is the goal of true education.
Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.


Commencement Update: Class of 2020 Ceremonies Rescheduled for December


A Message to Our Graduates

May 2020 Graduates,

Per UNCW’s announcement on 6/30/2020, UNCW has had to make the difficult decision to postpone the rescheduled commencement ceremonies. All Class of 2020 graduates will be invited to participate in our December exercises. Graduates will receive continual updates via email as December approaches. In addition to email communication, we will provide updates below as they become available: 

Celebrating the Class of 2020 Virtually: Be sure to check out all of the different ways UNCW wants to say "Congratulations" to the Class of 2020. Graduates and families can view the virtual program booklet online, access the 'We are the Class of 2020' webpage to see profiles of fellow Seahawk Graduates, and read all of the messages from faculty, staff, and family members on the Class of 2020 Kudoboard!

Regalia: May Graduates who placed an order through Herff Jones before May 17 had their regalia shipped directly to their homes by June 1. Summer and Fall graduates will receive information regarding regalia ordering in September. 

Distinction Cords: Undergraduate students who will have earned university distinction will receive their cords prior to commencement ceremonies, and will receive more information from the Office of the Registrar once a process is determined.

Once again, we look forward to celebrating your academic achievements. Please continue to monitor your UNCW email for updates. We hope you are staying safe and healthy.

The Office of Transition Programs
