High School Counselors

Counselors reach beyond the classroom to help their students cross the bridge between high school and university life. NC State understands that, with their valuable support and expert advice, counselors play a vital role in their students’ college selection and application process. NC State appreciates this commitment counselors have to their students’ success and welcomes the opportunity to offer assistance and resources during this important transition.

As you guide your students seamlessly through the application process, we are available to answer your questions, help coordinate group tours and provide information on scholarship opportunities.

Students may submit one counselor recommendation letter through the Common App or Coalition App but it is not required nor recommended. Letters received through mail, email, fax or in person will not be reviewed.

Counselor Resources

Our goal is to ensure that you have the resources you need to connect with us and help direct your students as they prepare for the college experience.

Resources to share with potential students:

NC State University is a proud inaugural member of the new Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success. Along with other leading U.S. colleges and universities, we are dedicated to making excellent college preparation accessible to all students.

The Coalition offers a free platform of online college planning tools including a student locker and an admissions application. Students can add information to their locker to store accomplishments throughout high school and then use those materials when applying to colleges in the future. Counselors can also privately submit letters of recommendation and transcripts the students can store in their locker and upload to their application when the time comes.

Students can invite counselors and mentors to collaborate with them on materials they may add to their locker including essays for their college applications.
