Support Services

Academic Success Center

The Academic Success Center provides several types of free assistance to suit the needs of students in many 100- and 200-level courses, as well as all writing and speaking needs across the curriculum.

Academic Support Program for Student-Athletes

Academic Support Program for Student-Athletes (ASPSA) is a comprehensive support program that strives to meet the academic, personal and professional development needs of all student-athletes, promoting excellence and effectiveness in undergraduate and graduate education as well as leadership and civic engagement.

Walk-in Advising

Academic Advising Programs and Services (AAPS) provides Walk-in Advising for students who are exploring and/or changing undergraduate majors at NC State.  Cross-curricular advisors can help students evaluate potential majors, navigate the on-campus transfer process (CODA), and plan appropriate coursework as students transition between majors. In addition, we assist Non-Degree Studies (NDS) students with course selection. Transfer students can also benefit from our services.

Disability Resource Office

The Disability Resource Office (DRO) works diligently to ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided an inclusive experience and equal opportunity by determining eligibility for accommodations for students with disabilities and serving as a resource to faculty in helping them understand their obligation in providing equal access. If you have any questions or need clarification, please contact us by phone, email, or by appointment.

Career Development Center

At the Career Development Center, we help NC State students become standout job candidates. We do more than help you get a job after college — we work with you from freshman year on to develop a career path that matches your unique talents, interests, and ambitions.

TRIO Programs

TRIO Programs are Federal outreach and student services programs designed to serve and assist under-resourced individuals to progress through the academic pipeline from middle school to post-baccalaureate degrees.

Of these eight programs, NC State University hosts three programs, including the two premier TRIO pre-college programs, Talent Search (1991) and Upward Bound (1978 and 2012).  The Student Support Service program for undergraduate students launched in 2010. The Student Support Services STEM program launched in 2015. The Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program launched in 2017. Collectively, these programs have served thousands of students providing access to and persistence in higher education.

While student financial aid programs help students overcome financial barriers to higher education, TRIO programs help students overcome class, social, and cultural barriers to higher education.
