Each year UNCW becomes increasingly selective, and we are unable to enroll all the talented students we want for the fall semester. During the application process, we identify students who meet most of the criteria in UNCW's academic profile and who possess the leadership skills and academic preparation that will make them successful at UNCW's rigorous academic environment. For this reason, we make an official offer of admission to the university as a First-Year Spring Admit (FYSA).
The FYSA group will receive academic advising over the summer should the student choose to enroll in a community college during the fall semester. For more information on our academic advising, run through UNCW's University College, please visit the following website: University College- FYSA Information
