Transfer Student Advising Resources

As a new student, you probably have many questions about where to go to find the resources and information you need about living and learning at NC State. The New Student Checklist will help you start on the path to becoming the newest member of the Wolfpack family. 

You must submit an official final transcript from all institutions you attended prior to enrolling at NC State. Final transcripts should display letter grades in all courses and the conferred degree (if applicable). Final acceptance is contingent on your maintaining a level of academic performance that is equal to or better than your previous academic record. Failure to submit an official final transcript will cancel your enrollment. 

Mail transcripts to:

NC State Office of Undergraduate Admissions
Campus Box 7103
Raleigh, NC 27695-7103

Comprehensive Articulation Agreement 

Under the provisions of the CAA, students who transfer to a UNC system university after completing an AA/AS degree or the general education core with a grade of ‘C’ or better in each course at an NC Community College, should be considered to have completed their general education requirements at the university. Students eligible for the CAA will have the “GEP Met Through NC CAA” note at the top of their degree audit.

CAA Baccalaureate Degree Plans

All students at NC State must demonstrate competency at the Elementary II level in a foreign language (FL* 201 for English Majors) as a requirement for graduation. Students who do not meet the proficiency requirement as determined by a review of the student’s high school record by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions – two years of high school study of the same language with a grade of ‘C’ or better in each of the two years – must take a placement test. 

The Office of New Student Programs welcomes you to NC State University, a community of achievers rich in tradition and academic excellence. To assist you in becoming a part of this community, we invite you to attend a Transfer Orientation session. This orientation is mandatory for all transfer and newly matriculated degree-seeking students. 

After paying your Advanced Enrollment Deposit to confirm your attendance, visit the Transfer Orientation website for a complete overview of your next steps.
