Disclaimers & Other Info

UNCW makes no representations or guarantees about positions listed by the Career Center. UNCW is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions or other aspects of off-campus employment. It’s your responsibility to research the integrity of organizations where you apply.

You’re advised to use caution and common sense when applying for any position with an organization or a private party. You should not go alone to a residential address to apply for a job. Don’t put yourself in a vulnerable position—even the best job opportunity is not worth jeopardizing your personal safety.

Federal and North Carolina minimum wages are $7.25 per hour.

Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA)

FERPA is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. Provisions of FERPA allow universities to release "directory" information about students without further permission.

FERPA defines "directory" information as a student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, honors and awards, dates of attendance, degrees received and the most recent previous educational institution attended.

The Career Center may release such information to employers seeking interns and part-time or full-time employees. Students may request that UNCW not release directory information about them by completing a "Request to Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information" form from the Office of the Registrar.

By posting resumes and other documents in Handshake, students grant the Career Center the right to disclose those documents to employers.
