transfer - Application Fine Print
Once you've decided you would like to transfer to NC State University, it's time to apply. Here's how to get started:
- Note all important deadlines.
- Complete an online application through WolfPAW, your personal admissions website.
- Review your application to make sure it's complete. It should include:
- Complete admission application
- Non-refundable application fee ($70 for domestic and $100 for international undergraduate applications, payable through your WolfPAW account).
- Official transcripts from each college attended, sent directly from the registrar's office.
- A list of current college courses in progress (if applicable).
- Final high school transcript. The transcript must be received in a sealed envelope by your school or via a recognized transcript delivery service. All applicants must provide an official high school transcript, GED or Adult High School diploma, regardless of age.
Applicants whose names have changed should indicate on the application which name will appear on their transcripts.
NC State University does not require SAT or ACT scores for transfer applications.
why apply online?
Completing an online application does more than save trees. With the help of WolfPAW, you can:
- Start your application, save your work, then go back to review and make changes before submitting the final document.
- Obtain information about campus visits, open houses and tours.
- Receive e-mail reminders about important dates and deadlines.
- Follow the status of your application.
requesting a major
You will find a list of majors by college on the Registrar's website. Transfer applicants may not request First Year College or undeclared majors within a college. Transfer applicants should select only those majors in which they have a strong interest. Transfer students may not change their curriculum during their first year at NC State University and can take only courses that satisfy the University’s Progress Towards Degree requirement for that curriculum. Students who are accepted in one degree program who later want to change majors are subject to on-campus transfer requirements, which are no less rigorous than the off-campus transfer requirements.
benefits for early birdsEach year, NC State receives a flood of applications right before the final deadline. Since applications are processed in the order in which they are received, applying early means you'll likely hear a response much sooner if there's something missing from your application.
