Step 2: What Courses Transfer

Chancellor's WalkAs a general rule, UNC Wilmington will accept credit from any REGIONALLY accredited institution. The only credit that will not be consider is developmental, remedial, and/or technical credit. It is against our accreditation standards to accept credit from an Independent, National or other accrediting body that is not regional.

You can access our list of transfer equivalencies by clicking the link below and following the directions. This is NOT a full, complete list of credit. There are links to assist you if you cannot locate your school/courses.

Transfer Credit Limitations

  • Two-Year Institutions/Community Colleges
    A maximum of 64 semester hours of credit may be awarded to students who have pursued their education at a two-year institution.
  • Four-year institutions/Colleges & Universities

Step 3: How This Applies to My Major and Career

ColumnsIt is important to know that admission to UNC Wilmington does not guarantee acceptance into your intended major. If your major has a separate admission process with its own admission requirements then, if admitted, you will be in a pre-major status. Please refer to the Degree Programs and Requirements section of the online university catalogue for more information.

An undergraduate degree is divided into three parts: University Studies requirements; degree requirements; and free elective hours. You are welcome to visit the links below to assist you with information regarding our University Studies requirements and Undergraduate Majors:
