Welcome to UNCW! This website is an online advising tutorial for creating your first semester schedule. This tutorial will help you learn about general education requirements (University Studies), first-year seminar, and the online registration system. We expect new students to complete this online advising tutorial for a richer academic advising experience.

Step 1

Click on every link on the left navigation. Watch all videos and read the information.

Step 2

Students who signed up for their Orientation session by May 11, 2016, can register for courses BEFORE Orientation. Starting May 16, 2016 at 1pm until May 27, 2016 at noon, students can sign up for up to 16 hours of courses for the fall semester. You will register for real courses for next semester, but you can always change your schedule at Orientation.

One video has the Registration PIN that you will need to register for courses. The Registration PIN is the password needed to be able to register. We expect you to complete this course and register for courses early for the best academic advising experience during Orientation.

Students not meeting the May 11, 2016 deadline will ONLY be able to sign up for courses at Orientation.


At orientation, advisors will review your schedules to make sure your courses are appropriate. Classes not available during Early Registration are often available at Orientation, so there will likely be many more options when you complete registration at Orientation.

If you have questions about any of this information after completing Step 1, you will be able to contact an advisor. If you have questions during Early Registration, an advisor will be on call from:

  • May 16, 2016 from 1:00pm-5:00pm
  • May 17-19 from 1:00pm-5:00pm
  • May 20 from 9:00am-noon
  • May 23-26 from 1:00pm-5:00pm
  • May 27 from 9:00am-noon
