UNCW's First Year Spring Admit Program
Transcript of UNCW's First Year Spring Admit Program
If you are interested in living on campus, housing is guaranteed as long as you submit a housing contract and deposit by October 15!
FYSA housing assignments are determined on a space available basis, and the Housing and Residence Life office cannot guarantee roommate or building requests. However, all FYSA students will be placed in a first year residence hall with other first year students.
If you are interested in living off campus, or plan to move to Wilmington before you begin classes at UNCW, the PERCH is a resource to help students find safe and affordable off campus housing. (www.uncw.edu/PERCH)
What Will I Do in the Fall?
FYSA students have lots of options for the fall semester, and we can help you determine which plan makes the most sense for you.
Some opportunities include...
Completing an internship in a field you are interested in studying
Taking classes at a community college near home or close to UNCW
Working to save money for school
Study Abroad programs (some Universities abroad even have programs specifically for Spring Admitted students)
Frequently Asked Questions
Why was I admitted for the spring?
Orientation and Programming
FYSA Students will have their own Orientation program when they arrive at UNCW in January. The program will help acclimate you to the campus, and is where you will finalize your class registration.
Advising and Enrollment
To hold your place in the FYSA program you will still be required to pay your $100 enrollment deposit by May 1st.
UNCW University College Academic Advisors will then communicate with FYSA students about their fall plans based on information they provide on their "FYSA Information Sheet." (www.uncw.edu/uc/FYSA)
If you plan to take any classes during the fall semester, Academic Advisors are helpful resources to determine how the credits will transfer to UNCW.
Each student will also be required to work with an Academic Advisor to finalize their class registration for spring. This will occur at Orientation.
FYSA student quotes
“ Interning at the White House was an unbelievable
way to spend my first semester. I hope to continue
work in public service because I now realize the
importance of giving back to the community.”
First Year Spring Admit Program
We will host a meet and greet for all admitted FYSA students at our "Dare to Soar" admitted students visit day in April, and another during Orientation for enrolled FYSA students to get to know each other.
Connect with former and recently admitted FYSA students on our FYSA Facebook group. You will be sent an invitation for the group after you have been admitted as an FYSA.
“ I was presented with the wonderful opportunity to
study abroad at Franklin College Switzerland. I’ve
had the privilege of traveling to several different
countries, all throughout Europe, and experiencing
so many different cultures due to this opportunity
from UNC Wilmington.”
“ Based on the advising I received from University
College, I was able to earn a full semester of credits
over the fall at a college near my home. The FYSA
Facebook group was beneficial because we all were
eager to meet each other. It gave us an opportunity to
contribute to common questions everyone had
and receive pertinent information. It simply gave us
time to get to know one another little by little.”

An FYSA decision is a true offer of admission to UNCW for the spring semester. There is never guarantee that we will admit any students from our waitlist .
How is this different from being wait listed?
Each year UNCW has become increasingly selective and we are unable to bring in all of the talented students we want to in the fall. During application reading, we identify students who might not fit UNCW's academic profile precisely, but who possess the leadership skills and academic preparation we are confident will make them successful at UNCW.
How many students will come in the spring?
While it is difficult to predict exactly how many students will take advantage of this opportunity to begin in the spring, we anticipate a significant group of more than 100 students. For the Spring of 2013, UNCW has a group of 125 FYSA students enrolled.
Will I have the same freshman experience in the Spring Semester?
Though FYSA students will not be on campus at UNCW until the spring, they will have many of the same opportunities as our fall admitted students. FYSA students will be invited to our Dare to Soar visit day, they will have their own orientation program in January, and will have the option of living in first year residence halls just like their fall counterparts.
Can I request to be moved to the fall semester?
Once admission is offered for the spring semester, the decision is final, just like our fall admit and deny decisions. Students have until May 1st to accept this offer.
