Admitted Student Checklist
Please check the Moodle site and/or your NC State email often as we will refresh information over the coming months for students beginning August 2020. Between now and then, there are a few important steps you need to take, and some of the information can be confusing!
- Submit Final Documentation to The Graduate School: Before you can be fully admitted, you must submit all final documentation, which includes all official transcripts and any international student documents required (if applicable). Following submission, The Graduate School will email to you an updated decision notification that includes your NC State University “Unity ID.”
- Submit Enrollment Deposit: Complete your Intent to Enroll form and submit your $300 Enrollment Deposit. Instructions for submitting your deposit are available in your official admission email from the Dean of the Graduate School.
- Review all email from NC State University. You should have already received an email from the Jenkins MBA Admissions Director recommending you for admission. Your official admission letter from The Graduate School Dean will soon be posted in your online application portal. This letter will include your Campus ID number (also referred to as your Student ID). This is not to be confused with your Unity ID, which you will receive following submission of all official documentation. View our Admissions FAQs to review the distinction between Campus ID and Unity ID. The Jenkins MBA Office will send you additional emails with important information.
- Prepare for Orientation: Once you have completed the steps above and are enrolled as a Jenkins MBA student, you’re all set to prepare for orientation. Review the orientation information via the Moodle site as well as look out for emails regarding specific preparation in the months prior to the August 2020 start.
- Meet with Your Advisor: Your academic advisor will email you when it is time to start advising and registering for fall classes. You can expect this to happen in April. You (all students) will have an advising hold on your account until you talk with your academic advisor. At that time, he or she will let you know what you need to do in order to remove your hold. During your advising appointment, you will discuss your plan for the program, including the classes you will take your first semester. Please note that you may not register for classes until you are a fully enrolled and admitted NC State student. Additionally, please know that we have saved seats in the classes that you should take in your first semester so you do not need to worry about getting into your core MBA classes.
- Register for Classes and Pay Your Tuition: Once you have spoken with your academic advisor and developed a plan with regards to your classes, you should go ahead and register for the upcoming semester’s classes. Please keep in mind that you will also have to submit your tuition payment by the indicated due date as per the Cashier’s Office.
