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 is committed to creating access opportunities and meaningful partnerships to support transfer student success.

It is a pathway for guaranteed transfer admission to UNCW for students completing an AA, AS, AE, AATP, ASTP, or AFA from a participating North Carolina Community College.

Benefits include:
  • Early access to transfer resources, such as tailored coaching and advising from UNCW.
  • Access to unique campus visit opportunities and events.
  • Guaranteed admission as a transfer student.
  • Application fee waiver.
  • Priority consideration for transfer merit scholarships.

Transfer Opportunities

Application Fee Waiver
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.
Current students enrolled at a participating community college who are planning to complete a transferable associate degree are eligible for PathWays benefits. Please note that current high school students are not eligible for PathWays benefits. Cooperative Innovative High School students who are planning to apply as transfer students are eligible for PathWays benefits.

Students are encouraged to enroll in PathWays during their first year at their partner community college to maximize the benefits of the program.
