Reinstatement Process for Previously Dismissed Students

If a student has been academically dismissed from UNCW and wishes to return, they need to be aware of the earlier deadlines and the extra materials they need to submit.

Earlier Deadlines:

  • October 1 for spring enrollment
  • March 1 for fall (or summer) enrollment
  • The committee will usually not approve a summer return because of the condensed timeline of the terms and the academic requirements that need to be met for continued enrollment

Application Process

Refer to the Admissions Office's website for step-by-step instructions on how to apply.
