April 2, 2021: Summer Programming Update

NC State is anticipating returning to normal operations for the fall semester, and we are encouraged by the current trends of COVID-19 infections throughout our city and state. However, some safety protocols and event restrictions will still be in place this summer, and this impacts programs like New Student and Family Orientation and Summer Start.

Orientation Format: NC State has decided to move forward with a hybrid format for New Student and Family Orientation for summer 2021. By offering both virtual and on-campus opportunities for new students and families, we hope to provide you with information and experiences that prepare you for the fall semester while keeping everyone in the Wolfpack community safe. Learn more on the Orientation website.

Summer Start Format: NC State is moving forward with a hybrid format for summer 2021, including on-campus housing options and online class delivery.
