University Efforts to Secure Information

UNCW has taken significant steps to protect the security of your personal information against the possibility of unauthorized access that could result in identity theft or other misuse of information. When applying to UNCW your Social Security Number (SSN) is no longer mandatory. Instead, a University ID will be assigned to you while you are with the university.
