How will my credits transfer to UNCW?
UNCW will accept a maximum of 64 semester hours of credit from a regionally accredited two-year institution. Credits earned at another institution with a grade of a “C” (2.0) or better are accepted by the university if the work transferred is comparable to offerings at UNCW. For information regarding transfer of credit, visit www.uncw.edu/reg/transfercredit.htm.
Does an Associate's degree replace University Studies requirements?
While many of the courses completed to earn your Associates of Arts or Sciences degree are transferable and will fulfill UNCW’s University Studies (general education) requirements, an AA/AS degree is not interchangeable and does not replace the University Studies curriculum. Students will need to take additional coursework once admitted to the University in order to fulfill the University Studies requirements.
What is my class standing and when will I graduate?
Your class standing is based on earned credits, including transfer credits. However, you will be classified as a “first-year student” for certain processes and policies, such as housing and advising.
Your timeline to graduation is contingent on the transfer credit evaluation, fulfillment of UNCW University Studies (general education requirements), and major requirements. An Associate’s degree may fulfill many but not all University Studies requirements. Additionally several majors have separate admissions requirements and highly sequenced coursework.

Tips for Success at UNCW
Early College Applicants
Early College students are advised through University College during the first two semesters, while working toward major requirements. Students officially declare their major after completing coursework at UNCW.
Research UNCW University Studies and Major Requirements
For a list of University Studies requirements and all majors with required coursework, visit http://uncw.edu/uc/advising/index.html. Note that requirements may change.
Students must meet requirements for their incoming year, which may not be posted until close to the start of the academic year.
Contact the academic department of interest should you have questions.
The workload and rigor at UNCW may differ from your previous academic experience. Expect to work hard from the first day of classes, spend a lot of time studying outside of class, and use your support services, such as tutoring and faculty.
Be ready to get involved in campus through student organizations, academic and/or social opportunities, and meeting new friends, faculty, and staff.
