Non-Degree Seeking Admission -
Permission Requirements

To attend during the fall or spring semesters, students must have obtained at least 24 hours of college credit at their current institution and have a minimum cumulative GPA of a 2.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale.

NOTE: No credit is transferred for non-degree seeking students nor is academic advising available.

Transfer of Credit

The university does not assume responsibility in determining a student’s course selection when such credits are to be transferred elsewhere.

Transcripts of work completed at UNCW must be requested through the Office of the Registrar to assure a record of academic work is sent to the home institution of the permission/visiting student. 

Enrollment as a permission/visiting student from another institution in no way obligates the university to continue one’s enrollment at UNCW at the expiration of the permission/visiting period. 

  • Fall - May 1

  • Spring - November 1

Decisions are only sent via US Mail.
