Students seeking admission by transfer of credits are required to have all transcripts of previous college or university work forwarded to the Office of Admissions by the registrar of each institution they have attended. Even though no transfer of credit may be involved, transcripts or records of attendance must certify all previous college or university work. The student must also submit an official high school transcript or GED score report. UNCW will not accept transfer courses from non-accredited schools, or from business, trade, vocational or technical schools, except by previous contractual agreement with UNCW.
UNCW may, on a case by case basis, waive one or more of the high school minimum course requirements (#1 above), but transfer students must meet all other minimum transfer requirements (#2-#7 above). Waivers will be considered under the following circumstances:
- The applicant is 24 years or older.

- Has the associate of arts, the associate of science, the associate of fine arts, the baccalaureate or any higher level degree from an accredited institution
