Academic Advising & Registration

Beginning with the Spring 2017 semester, ALL students taking classes at NC State will be required to electronically sign a statement of financial responsibility and this must be done prior to registration. Communications regarding this will be sent to all students no later than Friday, October 14th. Students can find this task in your ‘To Do’ list on the right side of the Student Center and you will also be able to link to the page from the Enrollment Wizard.  We suggest that you complete the task now and before enrollment begins next week; i.e., be ahead of the crowd!  Students should contact student_accounts@ncsu.edu with any questions or concerns.

Directions when searching for paired core courses:
When searching for the paired core classes you will need to uncheck the following filter on the “class search.” If this box remains checked, then the class search will not return the second class since it has the same meeting pattern; i.e., the courses are scheduled for the same day and time so the system views this as a conflict which is why you have to uncheck that box.

Make Privacy Adjustments –  Deadline October 28th

Make privacy information adjustments – Names of graduating students will not be published in the graduation program or in any official press release if the student has a privacy setting preventing such release. Students must ensure that their “privacy settings” in the MyPack Portal indicate their intention for inclusion in or exclusion from these publications. Check with Registration and Records for help completing this step. Deadline to remove the privacy block is October 28, 2016.
