Honors College Visits Postponed/Cancelled

As of March 13, 2020, we have closed the forms to request visits to the Honors College and RSVP to Info Sessions. We cannot schedule any additional visits until further notice and direction from UNCW leadership regarding COVID19 cancellations and closures. Those who have already requested a visit or RSVPed for an Info Session will be contacted directly. 

We encourage you to like our Facebook page or follow our Instagram account. We will use these social media platforms to advertise if and when we offer any virtual tours/information sessions to replace in-person sessions.

Honors College Information Sessions

On select Fridays in the spring semester, the Honors College at UNCW will host information sessions for interested students. The Honors Director, Dr. Shawn Bingham, will provide an overview of the college and answer questions. You'll also hear from a panel of current students in Honors about their experiences. Light refreshments will be provided, and the 12:30 time slot means you can easily stop by before a 2 p.m. campus tour or after a 10 a.m. campus tour.

Info sessions will be held January 24th, February 21st, March 20th, and April 17th, each at 12:30 p.m.

Please note: because of the info sessions, we cannot accommodate individual visits on the above dates. 

Unless otherwise specified, info sessions will be held in the Randall Library Auditorium at UNCW--RL 2047. Click here for directions to the building

Individual Visits

UNCW has a superior visitation program through our Office of Admissions with tours led by the UNCW Student Ambassadors and UNCW SAND (Seahawk Admissions Network for Diversity). However, we know that many of our prospective students would like to supplement the official UNCW tour with a visit to the Honors College.

We are delighted to coordinate that visit. We want to help you see what it is like to spend the day as a UNCW Honors student. You will be much better equipped to make your college decision after meeting our faculty, staff, and students and exploring our campus. We think you'll like what you find!

Please note:  we cannot accommodate individual visits on Info Session dates (Jan. 24, Feb. 21, March 20, April 17).

Before You Visit:

  • Please let us know if there are any special needs for you or your family/guests regarding accessibility. The visit does include a good deal of walking and weather conditions vary. We are happy to accommodate transportation across campus, but we will need to prepare ahead of schedule.
  • Please check the weather conditions prior to your visit. Weather near the coast can change quickly, so be sure to check a local television station for current weather information.
  • We will have water and coffee for you here in the Honors office, but you may want to come with your own water or beverage for the campus tour during our warmer weather (April-October).
  • An umbrella is always a good thing to have in a coastal climate.
