Student Life

AGI offers support services to help you adjust to the rigor of studying and college life. In addition to specific university programs for incoming students, you also have access to all campus resources at NC State.

AGI Tutoring

The AGI tutorial center offers assistance to all Agricultural Institute students. Students can schedule an appointment with Olivia (email her at omhornin@ncsu.edu).

  • Tutor: Olivia Horning (omhornin@ncsu.edu)
  • Location: 100 Patterson Hall
  • Tutoring Hours: Wednesdays, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm; Fridays, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Note: The tutor will help you and oversee work you are doing. She will not do your assignments for you. No student who is missing English or Math class on a frequent basis will be entitled to tutorial help. The tutor has access to all class attendance records and will refuse to help any student who has numerous unexcused absences.

AGI Writing

The AGI Writing website provides students with assignment prompts and resources they need for their Expository Writing and Professional Writing, Research and Reporting courses.

For Incoming Students

AlcoholEdu

All incoming, non-transfer students under the age of 21 are required to participate in the AlcoholEdu online alcohol education program. Failure to complete this program puts a hold on your record, and you won’t be able to register for spring classes.

Common Reading Program

The NC State Common Reading initiative offers a common educational and interactive experience for incoming students and introduces them to the university’s institutional and academic values and expectations, including engagement as members of this community.

The chosen reading for 2016, is Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson. We strongly encourage students in the Agricultural Institute to participate in the Common Reading program. Students will receive a copy of the book at orientation and may use it in the AGI/CS/HS 101 course.

Medical History & Immunizations

This is done online through the Healthy PackPortal on the Student Health Services website. Note: Health insurance is mandatory for all students. If you have private health insurance, you must submit an online waiver to StudentBlue that shows evidence of existing credible coverage or you will be automatically enrolled and charged the premium.

Scholarships & Financial Aid

The Student Services Center has information on the different types of financial aid available.  Also, visit the CALS Scholarships web page for information on college-specific scholarships.

Campus Resources

Transportation

Parking is limited for first-year students, and students who live on campus do not need a car. (We are sure that is not what you want to hear.) Wolfline buses are available when classes are in session, Monday-Friday for all students and public members to travel throughout Main and Centennial Campus. Students need university parking permits for all vehicles parked on campus during 7:30 am-5:00 pm. Students can choose from different parking garages/lots that students are able to choose from with various prices. For more information and how to explore different transportation options, please visit the Transportation website.

Tuition and Fees

Tuition and fee bills are not mailed.  You will receive an e-Bill to your email account (from e_bill@ncsu.edu) once you are enrolled in classes. Please check your email regularly. Tuition and fees are due August 1. If you miss this deadline, your schedule will be dropped.

University Dining

Everyone will have to eat while they are attending AGI. University Dining, the university’s food service department, has 13 campus locations to serve students, faculty, and staff. There are several different meal plan options that allow students to choose the number of structured meals and a number of flexible cash-points. University Dining will mail information to you, or you can visit their webpage and sign up for your meal plan. Visit the University Dining website for more information and to explore the meal plan options.

University Housing

Housing on campus is available to Agricultural Institute students. Agricultural Institute students are welcome to live in any of the residence halls on campus. A variety of options are available to accommodate diverse student interests and needs, including single gender and co-ed residence halls, and suite-style and hall-style living. Students also can live off-campus in apartments or houses, or in fraternity/sorority houses. For details on housing, visit the University Housing website.

NC State Athletics

Agricultural Institute students are able to attend all NC State University sporting events free of cost. For more information and to request student tickets, visit the NC State Athletics website.

Student Health Center/Counseling

Student Health Service offers medical care to students on an outpatient basis. Located on campus in the Student Health Services Building at 2815 Cates Avenue, the facility is staffed by full-time physicians, registered nurses, and other medical support personnel. Counseling is also available for students in a group or individual setting to help deal with stress or other issues.

Disability Services

Students requiring special assistance because of visual, hearing, or motor disabilities can contact Disability Services for Students (DSS). Interpreter, tutorial, and note taker and reader services are available. Direct services for all learning disabled students, such as educational counseling and arrangements for appropriate academic support, can also be initiated by DSS.
