Advising > ABM students begin their advising with the Coordinator of Advising for 1-2 years, then are assigned a faculty advisor who is an expert in the area of their desired career. While students are only required to meet with their advisors once per semester for registration purposes, we encourage students to get to know their advisors. Cultivate a relationship that can help you network and grow as a student.
Add courses > To enroll in courses each semester, you need to use the Enrollment Wizard. Instructions on how to navigate to the Enrollment Wizard, access WolfWare, and guidance using the tool is available. Skip to 3:43 minutes in the video for a demonstration of how to add courses.
Change a course from credit to credit-only > Be aware of dates and deadlines to change courses from credit to credit-only. To switch a class to credit only before the deadline to do so, navigate to your schedule in the Enrollment Wizard. Using the “Edit” feature, change the grading basis to “Sat/Unsat”. Keep in mind that the only courses that ABM majors can take as credit-only are PE and free electives. A grade of C- of higher is required for satisfactory (S).
*Use pencil icon at the far right of course to change to credit only (S/U)
If you want to change your course from Credit to Credit Only after the deadline, you will need to complete a Schedule Revision Form, following instructions and procedures on the form, then turn in the form to 111 Patterson Hall. You must have extenuating circumstances that explain why you want to change the grading method and they must meet certain criteria as outlines by CALS Academic Programs. They may request additional information or paperwork prior to approval and approval is not guaranteed. Extenuating circumstances must exist to justify a change to credit-only after the drop/revision deadline. Contact Robin Clements to discuss this if you have missed the deadline.
Determine if you can repeat a course > You may repeat a course once if you earned a D+ or lower in that course. Unless the course is a special topic or independent study, the semester hours will only be counted once toward hours required for graduation, even if you pass the course both times you take it. The full policy is listed online. A student must obtain his or her adviser’s approval before repeating any course previously passed with a C-, C, or C+.
Determine the books that you will need for your courses > You can find your booklist by logging into MyPack Portal and following this pathway to determine books required for courses.
- Student Homepage > Planning & Enrollment > Class Schedule> Bottom left, select “View My Books”. Your pop up blocker will need to be disabled to view your books, as the button opens a new webpage for the NCSU Bookstore.
Determine when you are eligible to add Accounting and Economics courses that have restrictions > Some courses required by the ABM degree are housed in the Poole College of Management (PCOM). Thus, they control when ABM students can enroll for those courses and provide a timeline for each registration period. Make a note in your planner so that you can register for the classes you need in PCOM on the date registration opens for ABM majors and minors.
Excess repeats (Error during registration says I’ve already taken this class too many times) > If you receive an error that states you’ve taken a class over the allowed number of times, but you know you did not finish the class or did not earn credit (D- or higher), you need to go to Academic Programs in 111 Patterson Hall, Complete a Schedule Revision Form, as well as an Excess Repeat form. If the course is in Chemistry, Math, or Genetics, the instructor or department head will also need to sign the schedule revision form. Once the forms are approved by Academic Programs, you will take them to Registration & Records to be manually added to the course.
Search for courses offered > You can view all courses offered at NC State for each semester in the class search page.
Read and understand course restrictions > Be sure that you review course restrictions before registering for courses. You may encounter prerequisites, corequisites, or other requirements you have to meet in order to register for a specific course. Registration & Records outlines each type of requirement. If you have concerns, talk to your advisor. They also appear as an exclamation point highlighted in yellow in the Enrollment Wizard and on the course offerings page. Some are listed just below the course title in the course catalog.
