VIP Discount Program

The Very Important Parent (VIP) program offers special discounts for parents and families during your family's time at NC State.

About the VIP Program

New parents of incoming students will receive a welcome letter with a Very Important Parent (VIP) discount card at the beginning of the semester. Keep this in your wallet and present your card to access significant savings at participating VIP sites. The membership card is valid for four years or until the affiliated student is no longer enrolled at NC State.

VIP partners include area hotels, restaurants, entertainment and services that support and partner with NC State. Although VIP partners and discounts are subject to change annually, the card will remain active so check the list below for the current year’s partners.
