Cancellation of Classes
for Non-Payments

Accounts not paid (non-payment) by the due date may result in cancellation of classes.

UNCW will drop classes for non-payment the day after the Bill Due date for the first two bills issued each semester. Students whose schedules are canceled may find it difficult or impossible to re-register for the same courses because their seats may have been taken by students on wait lists.

How to Avoid Having Your Classes Canceled

The university requires that account balances be paid in full by the due dates shown on your account in order to avoid cancellation of courses at the beginning of the term. If your account balance is not paid in full by the due date shown on your bill, your classes will be at risk of being canceled. You can also find your due date on your statement in E-bill.

To avoid having your classes canceled for non-payment, you have three options:

  • Pay the total amount due on your account
  • Pay the difference of all charges minus “memo/authorized” financial aid
  • Enroll in a Teal Payment Plan

If your account balance is to be paid by a third-party sponsorship that has yet to be posted on your account, please email third party billing before the payment due date & we can review your account.

Cancellation Policy for Non-Payment

  • If your account balance is not paid in full by the due date shown on your bill, your classes will be at risk of being canceled.
  • Your due date is located on your student account statement.
  • Ultimately, it is the student’s responsibility to officially drop all of their classes, housing & meal plan, if they decide not to attend UNCW. Not dropping before the posted add/drop date can have academic & financial implications.
  • Please check out the withdrawal schedule & important information on the leaving university page & be sure that you have completed all of the appropriate steps. Please visit the Registrar’s website for more information about leaving the university.
