Special & Permission (Non-Degree) Undergraduate Students

Orientation & Advising

Non-Degree seeking students do not need to attend orientation; however, if your admission status changes to degree-seeking, you will be required to attend the next available orientation. Additionally, you will not have an academic advisor assigned.

It is suggested you provide an unofficial copy of your current transcript to the Office of the Registrar, in the event our course requires a prerequisite course taken at your current college or university.

If you have questions regarding pre-requisites and/or the registration process at UNCW, please contact the Office of the Registrar at (910) 962-7978 or

Financial Aid

Non-degree seeking students are not eligible to receive financial aid. The only exception is if the student is taking classes toward admission to a UNCW graduate program, in which case the student may be eligible to receive up to one year of aid. To learn more, please contact the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.

Main Campus vs. Extension Tuition and Fees

A full-time regular-term student is an undergraduate student that is enrolled in 12 or more credit hours of on-campus courses or a graduate student enrolled in 9 or more credit hours of on-campus courses. These students will be billed according to the Campus Rates for tuition and fees for all courses (including extension courses) and not billed at the Extension/Distance Education Rates.

Students enrolled in a combination of campus and extension courses (not meeting the definition of full-time regular-term student) will be billed at campus rates for main campus courses and billed at the extension rates for distance education courses (section 800).

Note: Full-time enrollment status may be determined differently for purposes other than tuition billing; i.e. financial aid.
