Sociology and Criminology

Department of Sociology and Criminology Advising 


Dear Advisee:


I hope that Spring 2022 is going as well for you as can be expected, and that you are enjoying your classes.


Summer and Fall 2022 registration begins on April 5.


As you may know, we have developed an Online Academic Advising Portal in UNCW’s Canvas learning management system. You must request your personal PIN number for registration using this online portal. This “course” has enabled open enrollment. Students can self-enroll in the online academic advising course with this URL: Once you log in to Canvas with your UNCW credentials, you will enroll yourself in the course titled, “Academic Advising Spring 2022 - Dept. of Sociology and Criminology.”  You will use this portal to access advising information. You may also use this portal for general information about policies and procedures about the sociology and criminology majors and concentrations.


You will need to follow a few easy steps to request your PIN number online, including watching a brief video on “Completing the Sociology or Criminology Major,” and a brief survey indicating that you understood the video and to request your PIN number to register for courses.


You will receive your PIN number upon completion of these steps (within three business days).


Once you have received this PIN, you will be prepared to access SeaNet, determine your registration date and time, and to register for your classes online at that time or later. Please note that you may still make an individual appointment with your assigned advisor should you have specific questions AFTER you have received your PIN electronically. There is no expectation for you to come to campus for any advising meeting, so please determine with your adviser the best way to communicate.
