Admissions

Can you tell me if I qualify for admission to your program?

Your application is not reviewed on one lone factor. Your materials are reviewed as a total package: your application, your statement of purpose, your official tests scores, your transcripts, and your letters of recommendation. We cannot tell you/pre-qualify you on an individual item. Sending an email to see if your particular score is sufficient to apply slows down the review process.

I have submitted all required items for admission but the NCSU Application Status Information Web page shows my application as incomplete. Why?

If you check status on the NCSU Application Status Information Web page and status does not indicate that your application is complete BUT you know you have submitted all items THEN check the status of EACH item to see that it has been received. If each item has been received, then know that your app is COMPLETE and please DO NOT contact us. You can check your application status in GradWatch. Sometimes there is a delay between when we mark you complete in GradWatch and it is recorded by the NCSU Graduate School. Marking an application complete is a manual process and very time-consuming in peak times; we don’t always have time to update on daily basis and, yes, we fall behind.

I am a new applicant and would like to send my certificates of accomplishments, resume and other documents. Where should I send them?

These are not required documents and, actually, sending such items slows down the review of your application.

I have been admitted to your University but I am unable to come for the semester in which I have been admitted. How do I request a deferral for admission?

You need to send an email to eceadmissions@ncsu.edu, state your full name, student id#, semester for which you have been accepted, semester to which you wish to defer, and an explicit justification for your request. It will be processed and reviewed by the Director of Graduate programs. You will receive a response by email.
