The Hazards of Being a Stealth Applicant

While the growing number of submission methods for college applications has helped connect students with many universities they may have been previously unaware of, this increased access can often come with a heavy price. The dangers of becoming a stealth applicant- a high school student who never contacts a college before submitting an application- are becoming ever more present, and many students do not realize the negative impacts this distinction can have on their college application, despite how well they may look academically.

Do you have international students interested in conserving the world's resources and protecting the environment?

The UNCW Office of Admissions would like to share with you an exciting opportunity being offered exclusively to international students!  Effective Spring 2013 term, UNCW will offer an International Scholars in Marine Biology and Environmental Studies (ISMES) Program.  The ISMES program, offered through the Department of Biology and Marine Biology and the Department of Environmental Studies, will offer international students the opportunity to receive a degree from UNCW in just three years.  Students will select a degree program in either Marine Biology or Environmental Studies.  The program stresses a hands-on and research oriented approach to learning, and addresses conservation issues of local, national, and international importance. 

For more information on the ISMES program and how to apply, please direct your students to the ISMES program website-
