Don't Forget to Sign Up for Orientation!

UNCW orientation is an exciting time for our new students and families. You will learn what you need to know to make a successful academic and personal adjustment to UNCW. Class registration, placement testing, and information about services provided to students are integral parts of learning about a new place and a new experience. Orientation is also a time for you to become more familiar with the campus and what we have to offer.   You will also meet some of your future classmates, friends, and faculty. Additionally, an orientation leader will assist you in finding your way around campus and meeting new people.

Registration is now open online... SIGN UP TODAY!

First Year Housing Options

Are you an accepted student still looking for the perfect place to live next year at UNCW?  Take a look at the UNCW Housing and Residence Life Website.  There are floor plans and pictures of all of the residence hall that are currently available for incoming freshmen. 

Today, there are 45 residential buildings that include traditional residence halls, residence suites, and apartments. Collectively, these buildings house over 4,100 students representing nearly 40% of the undergraduate population. Although UNCW does not require any students to live on campus, almost 95% of UNCW freshmen choose to stay on campus their first year.
Feel free to contact the Housing and Residence Life with any questions you might have about what it is like to live on campus:

AP Credit by Examination

An entering freshman may receive semester hour credits based on Advanced Placement Examination. These examinations are taken prior to the student's high school graduation. Information on this examination program may be obtained from the high school counselor. High school students who take Advanced Placement Examinations should have test scores sent to the University of North Carolina Wilmington Registrar's Office for placement and credit evaluation.  Please head to the UNCW Registrar's website for more information on what scores correlate to the UNCW class.

UNCW Summer School

For students willing to dive in intellectually, the University of North Carolina offers a perfect environment for learning and living, one that is dynamic, demanding and engaging.

Some advantages which Summer Sessions provide are: the ability to complete a full semester of coursework in a shorter span of time; the opportunity to reduce course load in the upcoming semesters; and a jump start for new students to obtaining a degree.  Students may earn a maximum of eight semester hours of credit per summer session!

Summer Session 1: May 13-June 15, 2010
Summer Session 2: June 23-July 23, 2010

If you are a newly admitted student you can email the UNCW Office of Admissions at and request that your application be moved to the second Summer Session.  New students must attend Orientation prior to attending classes at UNCW, and Summer Session 2 would be the earliest they can begin at UNCW.
