  • UNCW has developed the “Best for the Nest” website to bring together information from Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, Business Affairs, Human Resources, the Student Health Center, Campus Dining, Environmental Health and Safety, and other campus departments and offices.

    The site, which will be updated as circumstances evolve, includes an FAQ section designed to address many common inquiries about the university’s strategies and safeguards to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. This section cannot contain every question and answer that might be meaningful to a member of our campus community. If you don’t see the information you need on the site or in the guide, please submit your question to bestforthenest@uncw.edu.

  • In an effort to ensure your health and safety, all advising appointments will be held remotely via Zoom or phone this semester. Please schedule an appointment with your advisor online.

  • Distribution of Documents
    • F-1 Students: Per SEVP Guidance, I-20s issued and signed electronically during the COVID-19 pandemic are considered valid, original documents. Going forward, OISS will only be creating I-20s electronically and will email F-1 students the electronically issued and signed I-20.
    • J-1 students and scholars: Per EVP Guidance, the physical DS-2019 is still the original, valid document so OISS is still issuing physical copies of DS-2019s and will arrange to mail the document to the J-1 student or scholar at the time we notify you a new document has been issued.

  • UNCW is closely monitoring the new coronavirus (COVID-19) situation based on the latest information available from health and travel authorities and in conjunction with the UNC System and state agencies. We have curated resources and information in an effort to help our campus community remain informed and prepared throughout these unprecedented circumstances. This site will continue to be updated as developments warrant.
