Keep Learning

Support

There are multiple areas on campus that can help you in this time. While this is just a sampling, please feel free to reach out to any department you need via the contact information on their homepage. More student support services will be added frequently so please check back often. 

  • University Learning Center

     

    General Online Options

    For some ULC services, this will cause little disruption: students can schedule mentoring appointments, tutoring appointments, and writing appointments like they always have. However, Online: Zoom will be their only option. (Though, students can still submit papers for asynchronous response). 

    As we take all services online next week (March 23-30), there will be more adjustments. ULC's homepage will be updated with guidance for students and is the best source of up-to-date information on our services. 

    Major Changes to Services

    For other ULC services, this will result in major changes: Supplemental Instruction will no longer provide large, drop-in sessions – instead, we will offer several hours of small-group appointment availabilities. Similarly, the Math (STEM) Lab will no longer be drop-in – instead, we will offer several hours of small-group appointment availabilities. This will be an adjustment for both the students who use our services and the students who work for us as peer tutors. We ask for everyone’s patience as we transition to an all-online format.

    Also, some of our peer tutors have elected not to continue working for us this semester. This means that some SI classes may not be supported (the faculty member will be notified if this is the case), some courses may not be covered by tutoring, and in general we may not have as much coverage as we normally would for all services.

  • Academic Advising at UNCW

     

    In an effort to ensure your health and safety, we will not be offering face-to-face advising appointments this spring. However, it is crucial that advising appointments continue as scheduled to enable you to register for Summer and Fall classes. Each college handles academic advising a little differently. See the links below for each college’s advising webpage. As you return from the extended spring break, please be sure to schedule your academic advising appointment. All appointments are being handled virtually through web conferencing (Zoom), phone calls, email or other digital platforms.

    Students—if you already have an appointment scheduled, be sure to check your UNCW email for instructions on how you will be advised virtually. If you do not yet have an appointment, log into Starfish to schedule one as soon as possible. Not all advisors are using Starfish - this is especially true for faculty advisors. Please consult your college’s advising page below for further details.  If you have any questions or issues, do not hesitate to email your advisor directly. UNCW academic advisors are committed to supporting you during this difficult time. See below for each College’s advising office:

    ·         College of Arts and Sciences

    ·         Cameron School of Business

    ·         College of Health and Human Services

    ·         University College

    ·         Watson College of Education: SAIL Office

    As nearly everything on campus transitions to Zoom, we thought this Youtube video demonstrating how to join a Zoom meeting, to which you have been invited, might be helpful.
