Academic and Financial Resources
Understanding NC State’s academic information and resources provide parents and families with the knowledge to best support student success.
Academic Advising Programs and Services
Academic Advising Services (AAS) provides quality and timely advising services to undergraduate students with the goal of facilitating academic success, major selection, career exploration and personal enrichment.
AAS is a collaboration of professional cross-curricular advisors who partner to provide walk-in, face-to-face, call-in and virtual advising to undergraduate students in transition; training and development for all University advisors; interpretation of academic policy; and application of General Education Plan to support timely degree completion.
All NC State students are expected to uphold a standard and environment that is plagiarism-free and cheating-free; where an individual’s work is his or her own and honest. Students who do not uphold this policy will be sent to the Office of Student Conduct for review.
Academic status will be calculated at the end of every fall, spring and summer term for all enrolled undergraduate students.
- Good Standing
- Academic Warning
- Academic Probation
- Academic Suspension
Students are expected to become familiar with the attendance policies set forth for each of their classes as laid out by the instructor in the syllabus for each course in which they are enrolled. NC State does offer excused absences for anticipated reasons, with documentation.
Student Services Center
The Student Services Center is a one-stop shop for registration and records, financial aid and tuition and billing needs. Students can receive information and services regarding enrollment, degree planning, transcripts, scholarships, financial aid, student accounts, billing and tuition, academic calendars and more. You can visit the Student Services Center in Harris Hall or find more information online at studentservices.ncsu.edu.
The Cashier’s Office serves as the billing and collection agency for most university charges, such as tuition, on-campus housing and meal plans.
Account representatives are able to assist students or individuals who have been granted Parent/Guardian Access, with questions about the charges and credits on their account.
Online statements are posted monthly to the student’s account. Individuals who have been granted Parent/Guardian Access are also notified via email when a new statement is available.
Registration and Records
The Department of Registration and Records provides effective academic services to students, faculty, staff and alumni while maintaining security and confidentiality of data.
Registration and Records maintains complete and accurate academic records and issues official transcripts, publishes the course catalog along with exam and academic calendars, and manages the tracking of degree progress and completion.
Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid
The mission is to make NC State education affordable and accessible. This office provides scholarships, grants, loans and work funding to support students and their families. The staff is here to help parents and students navigate the process of applying for financial aid.
To be considered for financial assistance by the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid, a student must complete the federal government’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form, submitted online at www.fafsa.gov, evaluates the family’s ability to pay for education expenses. Students who submit their FAFSA to the federal processor by March 1st are given priority consideration for need-based aid.
Once a student is offered admission to NC State University, they can begin applying for NC State Scholarships via the PackASSIST scholarship portal at go.ncsu.edu/PackASSIST.
Dollars and Sense
Dollars and Sense at NC State is a financial wellness program committed to creating students that are financially healthy. The program offers workshops, professional speakers, peer financial coaching and other resources that address a variety of financial concerns unique to college life.
The program’s hallmark event, Financial Literacy Month, occurring annually in April, offers a full month of fun and informative financial literacy events that equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to maintain lifelong financial wellness.

Many NC State students follow their undergraduate education with an advanced degree at a professional school. Whether students plan to pursue medical, dental, veterinary or law degrees, these programs offer services to assist students interested in learning more about their profession of interest, how to become a competitive candidate and the application process.
Pre-Professional Areas of Study
The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) supports and promotes discovery-, inquiry- scholarly- and creativity-based opportunities through mentored research experiences.
The staff assists students in identifying research mentors and opportunities in any chosen area of study through one-on-one consultations and an annual research exploration event in the fall semester.
Funding is available to support student projects, including attendance at national conferences for students to present their research.
On-campus, students are provided with the opportunity to communicate their work to others through our bi-annual research and creativity symposium and by publishing their work in our research journal.
University Tutorial Center
The University Tutorial Center (UTC) provides several types of free assistance to suit the needs of students in many 100- and 200-level courses, as well as all writing and speaking needs across the curriculum. By hiring and training qualified students to provide a variety of tutorial services, the UTC promotes students to become independent learners and therefore contributes to the academic success of NC State students.
