All incoming first-year and transfer students are required to attend orientation. For first-year students, this will be a two-day event; for transfers, this will be a one-day event dependent upon your major. Parents are not required to attend orientation, but are encouraged to do so.
Orientation is an exciting time in the lives of new students and families. You will learn what you need to know to make a successful academic and personal adjustment to UNCW.
Class registration, placement testing, and information about services provided to students are integral parts of learning about a new place and a new experience. Orientation is also a time for you to become more familiar with the campus and what we have to offer.
You will also meet some of your future classmates, friends, and faculty. Additionally, an orientation leader will assist you in finding your way around campus and meeting new people.
