Transfer Application Procedure

WolfPAW, NC State’s Personal Admissions Website, allows you to create an online profile, apply at your convenience, save your work, and review your changes before submitting a final application. In addition to allowing you to apply online, wolfPAW provides:

  • information on campus visits, open houses and tours
  • email reminders about important dates and deadlines

A complete application includes:

The following materials are optional:

  • personal statement (recommended and encouraged)
  • letter of recommendation (not required and not recommended). If you wish to submit a letter of recommendation, you may upload one letter through your wolfPAW account. Letters sent via mail, email or fax will NOT be reviewed and will be discarded.

ACT or SAT scores are not required for transfer applicants with more than 30 semester hours of transferable courses completed.  Qualifying AP scores can be used to meet transfer admission coursework requirements.  All AP or IB scores should be sent directly from the testing agency.

If you were ever previously enrolled as a degree student at NC State, contact Registration and Records about readmission.

If you are a U.S. Permanent Resident, you will need to submit a copy of your Green Card. Applicants who are neither U.S. citizens nor U.S. Permanent Residents should see the International Students page of our website for applications procedures and deadlines.

After you Apply

Your decision will be displayed on your wolfPAW account after your complete application has been received and reviewed. See Dates and Deadlines for your application’s notification date.

The decision may be “admitted,” “pending,” or “denied”:

  • If you are admitted, see our Admitted page for instructions on how to confirm your enrollment.
  • If your application is pended for Final Deadline, we will ask you to mail your official college transcript with spring grades by June 1.  You will be notified of your final decision on June 15.
  • If your application is denied, you can reapply for a future term after completing the transfer criteria.

Once students have confirmed their intent to enroll at the University, upon graduation they are required to submit their final official transcript from each institution attended.
