Enrolling in AG*IDEA

Courses in the AG*IDEA consortium have a “common price” per credit hour, and the cost is above and beyond the average tuition cost for NC State students.

NC State Students

NC students wishing to enroll in an Ag*IDEA course must follow these steps:

  1. Check the course matrix on the Ag*IDEA website to ensure the course is offered.
  2. Seek approval from the Ag*IDEA program coordinator at NC State.
  3. Complete a Student Acknowledgment Form. The student acknowledges that the Ag*IDEA courses are available at collaborating institutions, that the faculty teaching Ag*IDEA courses will award the grades for the classes, that there is a common tuition cost for these courses, and that the courses will appear on their transcript as NC State courses. Email the form to Breanna Collins, Ag*IDEA Campus Coordinator at NC State University, at bdandrew@ncsu.edu. You need to submit this form only once.
  4. Complete an NC State Ag*IDEA Course Enrollment Form for the course(s). The departmental Ag*IDEA coordinator must sign the form, and is required for each Ag*IDEA class.

Non-Degree Students – Residents of North Carolina

Non-degree students who are residents of North Carolina need to apply to NC State before enrolling in Ag*IDEA courses. Visit the Department of Registration and Records website for instructions on how to apply. Accepted students then can register for Ag*IDEA courses.

Non-Degree Students – Not Residents of North Carolina

Non-degree students who are not residents of North Carolina are not eligible to enroll in Ag*IDEA courses at NC State. Most Ag*IDEA courses are graduate courses, and we suggest students interested in a subject area contact the appropriate department and apply for admission to their degree program. Students then can enroll in Ag*IDEA courses as an NDS, Postbaccalaureate Studies (PBS) student. Visit The Graduate School website for more information about the graduate application process.

For additional questions, contact Breanna Collins, Ag*IDEA campus coordinator: bdandrew@ncsu.edu.

Resources

Below is information on how to access your NC State account and online courses.

NC State Students

New and returning students, including NDS students, should have a Student ID Number and a Unity ID code. Students use these to log into MyPack Portal, which contains information on the courses students take at NC State, including Ag*IDEA courses.

Students from Other Universities

Students attending other universities and taking courses taught by NC State faculty will be given the following:

  • A Student ID number
  • A Unity ID code
  • An NC State email address

Visit the MyPackPortal system; you can also access it by visiting the NC State University homepage under the ‘Resources’ tab. Students log in to MyPack Portal using their student ID number and the new password that was created when they set up their Unity Account.

Most courses taught by NC State faculty are in WolfWare, which is accessed directly or through MyPack Portal. Both will require authentication by using a Unity ID and password. If you entered through MyPack Portal, here are the steps to the course learning management system:

  • Click on the “For Students” tab
  • Click on the “Course Resources” section
  • Click on the “Wolfware (Moodle) option
  • The course in which you are enrolled should appear
