Transfer Schedule Header

Transfer students will have four parts to the transfer orientation experience. The first three parts occur online. Students do not need to come to campus until the final part. Information about each part can be found below.

  1. UNCW Online Modules
    The first part of the online experience will be comprised of UNCW online modules containing information about campus resources, academic requirements, behavioral expectations, campus policies, and engagement opportunities. Students can access the UNCW online modules through the VisualZen orientation registration system, after the student orientation fee is paid. The UNCW modules will take approximately 4.5 hours to complete.

    Below are the deadlines to complete the modules.

  3. Academic Advising and Course Registration
    Students will virtually meet with an academic advisor. Each college/school has a different process for academic advising. ON the Next Steps page in the VisualZen orientation registration system, you can find information about academic advising for your college/school.

    After academic advising, students will be able to register for courses on their assigned date, if they have completed the UNCW online modules and the U Got This! Violence Prevention modules.

    If you do not complete online modules by the deadline, a hold will be placed on your account preventing course registration. The hold will be removed once all the modules have been completed.

  4. Attend the Orientation Welcome Event in August
    After orientation, complete the post orientation checklist and attend a Orientation Welcome event. During this event, students will pick-up their UNCW welcome bag, take a campus tour with the orientation leaders, and more. Students will receive more information in late July.
