ENGINEERING TRANSFER STUDENT ADVISING PROCESS

  • April 15: Admissions Transfer Student Notification Date
  • April – June: Students pay their Advanced Enrollment Deposit (AED) indicating their intention to attend NC State this fall and register for Transfer Orientation.
  • April – June: The College of Engineering assigns academic advisors within 30 days of AED payment.
  • April – June: Students find their assigned academic advisors within in MyPack Portal (MyPack Portal: For Students ‐‐> Academic Records ‐‐> My Advisor). General advising questions (ex. prerequisite course structures, semester‐by‐semester plans, course restriction definitions, ) may be directed to engineering@ncsu.edu at any time, but specific questions (ex. how transfer courses may/may not be used to fulfill degree requirements) should be reserved for assigned advisors.
  • April – June: Students contact their assigned advisor to learn how their department handles transfer advising. Students may be asked to schedule an appointment, visit posted drop‐in advising hours, accept optional email advising, or sign up for a group transfer advising session offered in the department. Walk‐ins are discouraged.  Please keep in mind that fall classes start on August 16; some advisors may request your patience.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Should students be advised before attending Transfer Orientation?

Students admitted before May 15th should be advised prior to Orientation. Students admitted later than May 15th may be advised after orientation in some cases. Students admitted after May 15th should receive their advisor within 30 days after AED payment, so please be patient.  NOTE: Students admitted into the Electrical and Computer Engineering department will be advised via group enrollment/advising sessions which typically are offered at least three times throughout the summer.  Please contact the ECE department if you are an ECE transfer student admitted after May 15 and have not been notified of the time/date/location of these advising sessions.

Who should students contact if they have not been assigned an advisor in MyPack Portal 30 days after AED payment?

Students are asked to email engineering@ncsu.edu to alert the College of Engineering that they are a transfer student who has paid their AED fee more than 30 days ago and request to be assigned an advisor. The College of Engineering will confirm the date of AED payment and arrange advising accordingly.

Should students register for courses before attending Transfer Student Orientation? 

Not necessarily. Students admitted on April 15 will likely have registered before Orientation, but some students will register later if they are admitted later in the summer. Note that in a majority of critical path courses seats in departments are held for transfer students, so while you want to register as soon as possible students usually do not have issues enrolling in their key engineering coursework.  Ideally, transfer students will have their schedule finalized by the end of June if not sooner. An academic advisor will need to release the advising hold prior to students being able to register for courses.

Who should students contact in their college with advising and course registration questions?

Students should contact their assigned departmental advisor found within MyPack Portal, once listed. Otherwise, advisors in the office of Academic Affairs (engineering@ncsu.edu) are available for more general advising and registration questions.
