Summer Programs

Summer classes offer many benefits to different student populations.

Summer Courses

The Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics offers a large schedule of undergraduate courses for Maymester, Summer I, and Summer II.

Taking summer courses has numerous benefits, including the possibility of graduating early, lessening the fall and spring course loads, access to courses that are offered only during summer, and a greater availability of distance or online sections.

The Summer 2020 courses will be added in Spring 2020.

Registering for Courses

Registration for students in degree seeking programs at NC State opened in October.

If you are not in a degree seeking program, you need to apply to NC State as an NDS student (non-degree seeking) before you can add courses.

Steps to enroll as NDS student:

  1. Be aware of the dates when admission applications open and when applications close.
  2. Determine if you qualify for resident or non-resident tuition rates.
  3. Complete the North Carolina Residency Determination Service (RDS) form if you think you qualify for resident tuition rates. You have to complete that form to obtain your Residency Certification Number (RCN) number that is required on your admission application. You must complete this step before you apply if you want to pay resident tuition rates.
  4. Complete the International Clearance for Non-Degree Studies Students if you are an international student.
  5. Once you are admitted to NDS, email Dr. Russ the following info:
    • Your name and student ID number
    • The course(s) you want to take and the semester(s)
  6. Dr. Russ will add you to the course(s) you request if you meet the prerequisites.
  7. Pay your tuition before the deadline.
