High School Counselors and Community-Based Organizations

A Partnership for Success

We recognize high school counselors and community-based organizations are instrumental in supporting students through the college admissions process. At NC State, we both value this commitment to your student’s success and welcome the opportunity to work alongside you. Our goal is to ensure that you have the resources you need to guide your students through this process.

The below information is for high school counselors and community-based organizations.

Announcements and Events

There are a variety of ways to stay up-to-date with the admissions office and NC State’s application process. Check back monthly to see new announcements and events for counselors.


  • As a result of changes made to this year’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), students are receiving important financial aid information on a delayed timeline. In order to provide students and their families additional time and information to make the best decision, we have extended our enrollment confirmation deadline of May 1 to May 15.
  • Students admitted for fall 2024 or Spring Connect will need to log in to wolfPAW to confirm their enrollment by May 15.
  • First-year applicants who have been placed on the waitlist should indicate their interest in remaining on the waitlist by submitting the form on their wolfPAW account. We will let applicants on the waitlist know if we can offer them fall 2024 admission by June 15.
  • NC State will be test-optional for 2024 first-year applicants. Learn more about test score consideration in the admissions process here.
