Q. Can any student with a satisfactory GPA try out for any one of UNCW’S sports as a walk-on?

A. All teams at UNCW use athletes who are not on athletic scholarship.

Many of them are recruited walk-ons who have contacted the coach before coming to the university, but others have made the team through on-campus tryout. Some teams have set open tryout dates, but the process can be more informal.

If you are a full-time student interested in joining a specific team, try reaching out to the coaching staff of that sport.
