University College and Advising

University College (UC) prides itself in providing excellent academic advising and first-year experience programs for all UNCW freshmen. Students who begin classes in January as First-Year Spring Admits receive the same services as students who start in August. The primary focus of University College is to ensure that students:

  • Make a successful transition to UNCW
  • Are retained in 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. Click here for more information regarding academic advising at University College.

You will meet with academic advisors at January orientation, but we are available to you whenever you have questions. Please don't hesitate to contact us at (910) 962-3245 or email
