UNCW also requires official sealed documentation of any advanced credit you may be eligible for. This includes: community college or university-level coursework completed while in high school, AP credit, and IB credit.

Final high school transcript and advanced credit report/transcripts should be sent to UNCW as soon as possible at the following address:
