Admission to Degree Programs

New and re enrolling freshmen, unclassified and special admission students, and other students who have not yet been accepted into a degree program are assigned to the University College for academic support.

All University College advisors emphasize the importance of undertaking a rigorous academic load consisting of 15-16 credit hours each semester in order to complete all requirements for graduation within four years and can provide model four-year graduation plans for all majors offered by the university.

Admission to the College of Arts and Sciences

University College students wishing to declare a major within the College of Arts and Sciences will request to have their records transferred to the appropriate department after earning 24 credits at UNCW but before or during the semester that they complete 45 semester hours of credit.
