About University College


As part of the University's commitment to excellence in undergraduate education, University College was created to provide academic advising and support to UNCW students from the time of their admission until they declare their major, which is usually in their sophomore year.

The primary focus of University College is to ensure that students:

  • Make a successful transition to UNCW
  • Retain good academic standing
  • Identify and declare an appropriate major

Through its advisors and academic support programs, University College works with students in their formative semesters to assist them in developing their interests, skills, and talents to the fullest extent.
