Office of the Registrar


The University of North Carolina System’s web portal, UNC Online, is designed to facilitate inter-institutional registration for online classes, offered at each of the UNC system campuses. If you are an active student at UNCW, you have the opportunity to register for an online class offered by another UNC campus.  Registered courses will be included in your UNCW tuition. For a full-time UNCW student, there are no additional expenses. The school offering the class will set the start/end and add/drop deadlines (which might be different from UNCW's dates).  Grades will be automatically sent electronically at the conclusion of the course.  

This relationship and subsequent portal registration evolved from the UNC Online Language Exchange, which afforded students the opportunity to enroll in language courses at campuses other than their home campus.  This continues today but has been expanded to include additional academic subjects areas.

Remember to discuss your planned participation in UNC Online with your academic advisor to ensure the course(s) selected are transferable to UNCW.  A cap of six hours within UNC Online has been set at the system level.  If you wish to enroll in more than six hours within UNC Online, please discuss with your academic advisor and have your advisor email approval to the University Registrar. Also, courses taken through this program do not count towards the 15 credit hours of 300/400 level courses each students needs in his or her major at UNCW.
