Removed outdated language pertaining to Supplemental Credit and provided a link to the updated information.

WHY SHOULD I TRY TO DO WELL ON THIS EXAM?

* You may earn additional credits.  Please refer to the Supplemental Credit section of University Regulations for more information.

* If a student places into a second-year language class (excluding classes numbered 209, 210, 211, and 212) and completes that course with a grade of “C” (2.00) or better, the student will receive three hours credit for the prior course in the sequence, in addition to the credit for the second-year language class. For example, if a student places into French 201 and completes that course with a B+, she or he will also receive three hours of credit for French 102.

* For completion of a 300-level course in French, German or Latin, the student will receive 6 credit hours for 201 and 202. For completion of SPN 302, 303, or 315, the student will receive 6 credit hours for the two previous courses in the sequence unless the student already has AP, CLEP, or transfer credit for those courses. Supplemental credit may be used to fulfill University Studies requirements.

Tuition Surcharge

Catalogue Change: 11/18/19

A bill to repeal the tuition surcharge in NC, NC - S225, was enacted by the NC legislature in July, 2019. The undergraduate catalogue was amended to remove language regarding the surcharge from the University Regulations, Expenses, and Enrichment Programs sections of the catalogue.

University Regulations:

All new undergraduates seeking a baccalaureate degree at the University of North Carolina Wilmington will be subjected to a 50% tuition surcharge if they take more than 140 credit hours to complete a four-year degree program or more than 110% of the required credit hours to complete an officially designated five-year program. For details concerning counted credit hours, students subject to the surcharge, students exempt from the surcharge, and the way that the surcharge is calculated, see the preceding catalogue section on Expenses, subsection, Tuition Surcharge or online at http://www.uncw.edu/reg/tuitionSurch-overview.htm.

Expenses:

After the fixed tuition period has expired, tuition surcharge shall be applied according to current regulation 1000.1.5 [R].
Students who take more than 140 degree credit hours to complete a baccalaureate degree in a four-year program, or more than 110 percent of the credit hours necessary to complete a baccalaureate degree in any program officially designated by the Board of Governors as a five-year program, shall be subject to a 50 percent tuition charge.

Note: The State Scholarship Program for Children of War Veterans administered by the North Carolina Division of Veterans Affairs will not cover the 50% tuition surcharge. Responsibility for the surcharge would be placed on the student.

Summer Sessions:
Summer Sessions constitutes an integral part of the university’s year-round program. The principal academic terms of summer are two five-week sessions and one ten-week session. A variety of courses are offered for students who wish to accelerate their progress toward graduation, to supplement the academic load carried during the regular terms, or to remove grade deficiencies. During the summer sessions, students from other colleges and universities may be admitted as visitors by using the “Visiting Student” application on the Summer Sessions web page. Undergraduate students may earn a maximum of 8 credit hours per session, and graduate students may earn up to 12 credit hours during the entire summer term. Credit hours earned during the summer are excluded from the fifty percent (50%) tuition surcharge imposed on students who take more than 140 credit hours to complete a baccalaureate degree in a four-year program. Further information concerning the summer sessions may be obtained by visiting the Summer Sessions web page at www.uncw.edu/summer/.
