New Students

Welcome to the UNCW MSA Class of 2022!!!

On this page you will find the “next steps” to finalize your admission to the program. Please submit the below forms and complete the necessary actions by June 15th to be eligible for scholarship and graduate assistantship awards.

1. If you have not already, please pay the $50 enrollment fee to save your seat in the class. UNCW undergraduate students and active duty military are eligible to waive this fee. Please see the Graduate School’s instructions for this process here. Select: “I plan to attend”, then look for the “enrollment deposit” tab.

2. On May 7th we held our “Admitted Students” event through Zoom. The link to the recording is below:

3. Registration will open for Fall classes on May 10th at 9am.
  • Registration will be discussed at length during the Admitted Students Event
  • Registration takes place through Seanet. You will register for 6 MSA courses (MSA 505, MSA 508, MSA 516, MSA 518, MSA 526 and MSA 528). Advising sessions are not necessary as everyone takes the same courses in the fall. If you are a “bootcamp” student or need to finish any prerequisite courses please reach out to me to confirm those courses. The two fall prerequisite courses are ACG 470-Audit and ACG 471-Advanced Managerial. Please direct any questions about registration to Sarah Smith.

4. New Student Forms and Graduate Assistantship Interest: The link below will allow you to access these forms.  Please complete these forms electronically by June 15th.

5. All students are required to have a professional photo taken by our photographer. Dates for open sessions are 5/21, 6/11 and 8/16 (during orientation).  The open sessions will be from 10am to noon.  The location is CH 231.  This will be updated as soon as space has been confirmed.  It is highly recommended that job seeking students attend one of the first two sessions so that we can make sure that your resume has a photo in time for recruiting events.  Also, please dress in business professional for these photos.

6. All students are required to submit a resume following our program template. The template is attached below. Please update your resume and submit the final product by July 1. They will go to the Cameron School of Business Career Services Center who will review them. CSB Career Services is available to assist you with resume writing in person and virtually. Please take advantage of this opportunity. Directions on how to submit these resumes are below.

7. ALEKS: ALEKS is an online financial accounting review program that will be available for all incoming MSA students. Details about the program will be discussed during the Admitted Students Event.

8. Finally, please join our UNCW MSA Group on LinkedIn.
