NC State University enrolls more than 34,000 students in ten different colleges. Over 3,000 NC State students are from more than a hundred and twenty different countries and now call Raleigh their temporary home (See NCSU enrollment data). Every student’s success is critically important to us and it requires careful planning, good decisions, effective communication, hard work, adequate resources, and a supportive environment. Academic Success begins before arriving in Raleigh and involves finding a good academic advisor, understanding one’s rights and responsibilities - both as a member of the NC State University community and as an international student in the US - and achieving a healthy balance among all the competing demands of a student.
International students will need to know the relevant reporting requirements required by Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS), maintain fulltime enrollment, obtain the proper forms and approvals before taking certain academic actions or beginning employment, and communicate closely with both academic and international advisors throughout one’s program. Students should read the pertinent sections of this website and discuss any questions or concerns with an OIS advisor if before changing curriculum, changing immigration status, registering for less than fulltime enrollment, transferring to another school, needing to extend one’s immigration documents, or withdrawing. Most of the important immigration regulations and processes that affect your ability to stay in the US in a student status – both academic and employment related – can be found in the links in the left-hand side bar.
Current students will also want to visit the Current Students page on the NC State website in order to find links to more campus resources, such as tutoring services, the bookstore, campus recreation, athletics, health services, and student organizations.
