Transferring to NC State

Transfer Guidance

You will need to send transcripts from every college (including UNCW) and community college which you have attended to the NC State Office of Undergraduate Admissions regardless of how few courses you may have taken at that particular institution.

UNCW does not automatically issue transcripts. Please follow the procedure on the UNCW Registrar's website for requesting a transcript. If you are in your last semester at UNCW, you can specify that you would like the transcript sent at the end of the semester. It is important to submit your final transcript to NC State as soon as your final semester grades are posted at UNCW.

When NC State calculates your cumulative college GPA, they will consider credits from all colleges and/or community colleges you have attended. It also uses NC State's undergraduate grade exclusion policy and not that of the institution from which you transfer.

At UNCW, for example, students are allowed three repeats of courses and grade replacements in which a grade below a C was earned. At NC State, students are allowed two grade exclusions for a course in which a grade below a C was earned. Therefore, for any repeats above two, both grades for the same course will be used in the transfer GPA calculation.

NC State drops pluses and minuses when calculating the transfer GPA. The College of Engineering also requires a 2.5 GPA in the last two calculus courses taken including any calculus or differential equations course in progress at the time you apply.

Great! Congratulations! As stated in your letter of acceptance, please pay the initial deposit to secure your spot as soon as possible. You will then be assigned to an academic advisor and will be provided with further information about how to register for classes.
