Registration Policies and Procedures
Non-MBA Student Registration Petition
Graduate degree seeking students at NC State who are not enrolled in the MBA Program and would like to take an MBA course must submit a request via the Petition to Add form. Please read through instructions and procedures for filling out the Petition to Add form at the following link.
As per the University's continuous registration policy, you must be registered OR have an approved leave of absence every fall and spring semester (the policy does not apply to summer); otherwise, the Graduate School will terminate your graduate program. You must contact your advisor to fill out a Leave of Absence form if plan on taking a semester leave.
Once you have registered for your classes, be sure to check MyPack Portal for your tuition bill. Tuition bills go out electronically and must be paid by the due date indicated on your bill. Please pay all tuition and fees on time otherwise, your course schedule will be canceled. If you register during late registration you will be assessed a late fee in addition to your tuition, and your tuition and fees must be paid in advance of registering. For those of you who receive tuition reimbursement from your employers, that reimbursement is now considered taxable income.
Tuition and fees information is available on the university Cashier’s Office website.
There are different tuition structures between Main campus and RTP/Online. Main campus tuition is based upon BANDS of credit hours. You pay one rate for 3 to 5 hours, a higher rate for 6 to 8 hours and a still higher rate for 9 or more.
Because RTP is off-campus, it is considered a “distance” program and therefore falls under the tuition structure for Distance Education. The Online program also falls under the tuition structure for Distance Education. RTP/Online tuition is charged upon ACTUAL credit hours.
- Billing is completely separate for Main campus vs. Distance Education
- Example; If you take 6 hours on Main Campus and 1 hour at RTP/Online you get two separate bills.
