UNCW creates more “PathWays” for community college transfers

WILMINGTON — UNCW is looking to make transferring to its school easier for North Carolina community college students come early 2024.

Through its new PathWays program, the university aims to form partnerships with all 58 state community colleges that will guarantee UNCW admissions for eligible students and provide seamless support for those seeking a four-year degree. 

“We want to make sure there are many roads that lead to becoming a UNCW Seahawk,” UNCW Chancellor Aswani Volety said in a press release. “Through PathWays, we are collaborating with our state education partners to reduce barriers and simplify the transfer process for all students seeking educational opportunities in our state.” 

Previously known as UNCW Pathways to Excellence, the PathWays program will allow students to receive tailored communication and program opportunities. In addition, they will be connected to a transfer student success coordinator who can work with them to create a transfer plan based on their interests and intended major. Transfer students will also have UNCW application fees waived and priority status for merit scholarships and deadlines. 

According to UNCW Director of Transfer Partnerships Stefanie Norris, the majority of community colleges are participating in the PathWays program. Additionally, the university is adding more qualifying associate degrees to better meet the needs of students and the region’s workforce.  

“This program is one of our many commitments to making UNCW a more transfer friendly destination for students across North Carolina,” Norris said in a press release. “We deeply value our partnerships with the North Carolina Community Colleges and want to assist students finding their way to UNCW as best we can.”  

Students who had previously opted into the former Pathways to Excellence program are automatically transitioned into the new PathWays program, pending a partnership agreement with their community college.

For new students, they should complete the PathWays interest form, and more information will be provided once the new program launches. Visit the UNCW website to learn more.
