Step 1: Apply for Admission to NC State University as a Non-Degree Studies (NDS) Student

Note: If you are a degree- or non-degree-seeking student who has been continuously enrolled, you may register for available online courses through MyPack portal.

Only students admitted to NC State can take classes at the University. Anyone interested in taking courses without enrolling in a degree program at NC State must first apply as a Non-Degree Studies (NDS) student. Admission to NDS does not imply admission to an NC State degree program. NDS students are classified as non-degree-seeking. Grades earned as an NDS student will go toward the student’s NC State University grade point average or may be transferred to another institution based on that institution’s transfer policy.

The Post-Baccalaureate Studies (PBS) classification is assigned to those NDS students who have earned a bachelor’s degree. Enrolling as a PBS student is an excellent way to explore different fields of study to fulfill your personal and career goals.

As an NDS student, you may register for a maximum course load of 8 hours per semester on a space-available basis. Some courses carry prerequisites or are limited to degree-seeking students, so review the course schedule to determine your eligibility.

If new NDS applications are not currently being accepted, you must wait to apply until after the start-of-term lock-out ends. You will not be able to take a class until next term.

To register as a new Post-Baccalaureate Studies student:

    • Begin by checking your eligibility for Non-Degree Studies (NDS) status. To be eligible to apply for NDS, prospective students must:
      • Be eligible to return to any previous institution(s) attended.
      • Maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 at all times to remain eligible to continue.
      • Have accumulated less than 30 hours of total credit as a NDS student. NDS students are limited to a total of 30 hours of credit in NDS status. Students with 29 hours attempted will be allowed to register for the next term even if their enrollment in that future term will exceed the 30-hour limit, but they will not be activated for any subsequent terms once they have accumulated or exceeded 30 hours of credit. For more details, please see the NDS Enrollment rule.
    • If you meet the criteria for enrolling as an NDS student, and:
      • you have never attended NC State as a degree-seeking student, OR
      • you graduated with a degree from NC State and wish to enroll as a NDS student, OR
      • you previously attended NC State as an NDS student, but have not enrolled in courses for a year or longer,

Complete the online application. All applications require official transcripts and a non-refundable $25 Application Fee.

Note: NDS applications are good for a full year. For example, if you apply for Summer I, you do not need to submit a separate application for Summer II, Fall, or Spring.

The Registration & Records website provides additional information and answers to questions about Non-Degree Studies at NC State University.
