UNCW Transfer Programs
Thinking of transferring to UNCW? We love when Sea Devils become Seahawks!
Naturally, most of CFCC’s transfer students become students at UNCW. We love keeping you local and watching you excel at UNCW. We work closely with UNCW to create pathways for Sea Devils to become Seahawks.
UNCW offers application fee waivers for degree-seeking transfer students who are active-duty military, veterans, Phi Theta Kappa members, or who have demonstrated financial need. Military students (active-duty and veterans) will automatically have their application fee waived when they submit their application. Students who are requesting an application fee waiver outside of military reasons should complete the application fee waiver form
. They must provide any supporting documentation or information requested.
UNCW is in the process of re-launching the guaranteed transfer admission program (formerly Pathways to Excellence), re-branded as PathWays. The PathWays program will provide guaranteed access for students transferring between the North Carolina Community College System and the UNCW System. It is a pathway for guaranteed transfer admission to UNCW for students completing an AA, AS, AE, AATP, ASTP, or AFA from a North Carolina Community College.
The PathWays program will re-launch in January 2024. Students who have not yet joined UNCW’s guaranteed admission program can indicate their interest here , and more information will be provided once the program re-launches. Any students who had previously opted into Pathways to Excellence will automatically be transitioned into the new program, pending a partnership agreement with their community college.
