UNCW's First Year Spring Admit Program
UNC Wilmingtonon 27 March 2015
Transcript of UNCW's First Year Spring Admit Program
Contracts for spring on-campus housing will open August 26th. These contracts, and the required $105 deposit, will be accepted until October 15. Placements are made on a space available basis in first year residential areas, and a waitlist is kept for those who are not initially placed. In 2015, Housing and Residence Life placed 125 FYSA students in on campus housing for the spring semester.
Students at UNCW are not required to live on campus, and are free to explore local, off-campus housing options. The UNCW Perch has resources available for students who would like to explore those options: http://www.uncw.edu/perch/freshmen/HousingAssistanceFreshmen.html
What Will I Do in the Fall?
FYSA students have lots of options for the fall semester. While there is nothing required of you during the fall to remain elligible for this program, we do have a few suggestions you might be interested in...
Take classes at a community college near home or close to UNCW
Complete an internship in a field you are interested in studying (not for academic credit)
Work to save money for your education
Study Abroad in Ireland through our UNCW@Maynooth program (additional details later in this presentation)
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 spring position at UNCW you will still be required to pay your $100 enrollment deposit by
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). You should fill out this form as soon as you have deposited and know what you might like to do during the fall.
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. If you indicate that you are interested in taking classes during the fall semester on your FYSA Info Sheet, our advisors will be sure to reach out and work with you to select appropriate courses that will transfer to UNCW smoothly.
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 "Seahawk Preview Day" admitted students visit day, 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! I’ve had the privilege of traveling to several different countries all throughout Europe, and experience so many different cultures through 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 150 students. For the Spring of 2015, UNCW had a group of 200 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 Seahawk Preview Day open house, 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.
Study abroad in Ireland with a group of other UNCW FYSA students at one of our most trusted international partners, the
Maynooth University (MU)
, just 30 minutes outside the capital city Dublin!
Students will live together on campus at MU, taking a full load of courses that will fulfill UNCW University Studies requirements.
A UNCW staff member will join students for their first 10-14 days, and a full time MU on-site coordinator will be available as a resource for the duration of the program.
