Orientation & Transitions Programs


UNCW Early Registration


Welcome to UNCW! We are excited to work with you as you arrive at UNCW. This web tutorial is for incoming students for fall 2015. This tutorial will help you in your first steps with required UNCW academic information and registration options for the fall semester. This tutorial will also help you learn about first year seminar, the online registration system, and prepare you for registration at orientation. You will need to watch and review each video These are all resources that you will be using for years to come.

Next Steps

Students who signed up for their Orientation session by May 12, 2015 will be eligible for early course registration, and this website will help you choose your first year seminar class and perhaps a learning link or learning community. After reviewing the tutorial, you will be able to register for courses starting May 18, 2015 at 3:00pm until May 22, 2015 at 5:00pm. Students not meeting the May 12, 2015 deadline will ONLY be able to sign up for courses at Orientation; however, are able to view the tutorials and website to prepare for orientation.

Please pay attention to each page and remember you can re-visit this information at any time if you have any questions. Videos accompany each page to help you with the Registration Process. One video even has the Registration PIN that you will need to register for courses.

Please do not panic or worry as you go through this process. The Early Registration program is designed to educate students about UNCW academics and to give you an opportunity to practice with the online registration tools. For some students, it is a chance to register for classes prior to orientation. It is not meant to be your only chance to register or to replace working with advisors at orientation. Some students register for several courses while others only register for one or don’t register at all.

At orientation, advisors will review your schedules to make sure your courses are appropriate, and if you do not register for classes during early-registration, advisors will work with you to help you build your schedule.  Also, keep in mind that classes not available during early registration are often added to the schedule of courses 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 watching the tutorials, you will be able to contact an advisor at any time and will work with advisors at orientation as well.  If you have questions during Early Registration, an advisor will be on call from
