University College


Early College Students

Congratulations on your acceptance to UNCW! We are excited to work with you as you transition into UNCW.

As a student coming to UNCW from an Early College High School Program, you will be assigned to an academic advisor in University College (UC) for advising until you officially declare your major, usually after your 2nd semester. Although we recognize your previous college experience and incoming credits, we also know that UNCW will be a new experience and we want to support you through this transition.

Since many Early College students come to college with numerous transfer credits, and even an Associate's Degree, there are specific needs and questions that you may have. Advisors will work with you to answer questions about major and career exploration, graduation requirements and timeline, University policies and processes, and class registration.

We look forward to working with you.
