Incoming Freshman Orientation - Changing your Date

Please choose your date carefully! There will be NO REFUNDS for NO-SHOWS or LATE CANCELLATIONS. Be sure your reservation date is confirmed before securing and FINALIZING your lodging and travel arrangements. When registering on-line, you are confirmed only when you reach the final verification page that says "print for your records." Mail-in forms will take 10 days to confirm, please do not assume sessions are available until you receive final confirmation.

Additions to Reservations

All reservations are made under the student's name and student ID number by following the instructions on the "How to register" page. Parent reservations are made at the same time as the student. After the initial reservation has been submitted, if you would like to add another person to the reservation, you must submit your request in writing along with your payment of $60.00 per additional person for May and June sessions or $50.00 per additional person for August and January sessions. This payment must be paid by check or money order.

Make checks payable to UNCW and Mail to:
UNCW - Transition Programs

Please include a note with your check with the student's name, student ID number, and what changes you are making to the reservation. Please also include the student ID number in the memo section of the check.

Orientation Waitlist
(Summer Freshman Sessions Only)

If your desired session is full, you will have the option to request to be added to our waitlist. You must register for an open Orientation session in order to be added to our waitlist. If all June sessions are full, you must be signed up for the August session. We will operate on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that if we are unable to reach you, we will move on to the next person on the waitlist as vacancies often occur at the last minute.

If you are registered for August and a June session becomes open, you will be charged the additional June fees ($20 student, $10 per family member).

Please email us if you change your mind and would like to be taken off the waitlist.

Please be patient. Due to the volume of calls, Transition Programs will contact
YOU if a spot has opened up.
