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 (this does not apply to the summer semester). Otherwise, the Graduate School will terminate your graduate program enrollment. Please contact your academic advisor to fill out a Leave of Absence form and to discuss your leave eligibility.
After registering for your classes, be sure to check MyPack Portal for your tuition bill, which goes out electronically.
If you register after the deadline, you are required to pay a late fee in addition to your tuition. You must pay all tuition and fees on time. Failure to do so will result in the cancellation of your course schedule.
Please note that employer reimbursements are now considered taxable income. You can find details about tuition and fees information on the university Cashier’s Office website.
There are different tuition structures between the Main Campus and RTP/Online. Tuition costs on the Main Campus are by BANDS of credit hours. Students pay one price for 3 to 5 hours, a higher rate for 6 to 8 credit hours, and pay a tier higher for 9 or more credit hours.
Because RTP is off-campus, it is considered a “distance education” program and therefore falls under the tuition structure for Distance Education. The Online program also falls under the tuition structure for Distance Education, wherein students pay for ACTUAL credit hours taken.
- Billing is completely separate for Main Campus vs. Distance Education;
- For example, if you take 6 hours on Main Campus and 1 hour at RTP/Online, you will get two separate bills.
