Student Life

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

Academic Support

Tutoring

The AGI tutorial center offers academic assistance to all Agricultural Institute students. Email Kat Streahle to schedule an appointment.

  • Tutor: Kat Streahle
  • Location: 100 PattersonĀ Hall
  • Tutoring Hours: Please contact Kat for an appointment
  • Contact: kvstreah@ncsu.edu

Note: The tutor will help you and oversee the 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 any student who has numerous unexcused absences.

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.

New Student Programs

AlcoholEdu

NC State requires all first-year, non-transfer students to complete 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

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.

Visit the New Student Programs website to more about all programs for first-year students and families at NC State.

Student Services

Student Health Services

Student Health Services 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.

Medical History and 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 and 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.

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 July 30. If you miss this deadline, your schedule will be dropped.

Disability Resource Office

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 be initiated by the Disability Resource Office.

Campus Resources

University Dining

University Dining, NC State’s food service department, has 13 campus locations to serve students, faculty, and staff. Students can choose from several meal plan options that offer structured meals and a number of flexible cashpoints.

You will receive information in the mail, or you can visit the University Dining website for more information and explore meal plan options.

Transportation

Parking is limited for first-year students, and students who live on campus do not need a car. 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 from 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Visit the Transportation website to explore transportation and parking options on campus.
