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 normal tuition cost for NC State students. Additional information about AG*IDEA, including the Common Price for courses, can be found at the AG*IDEA website.

NC State Students

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

  1. Ensure that the course of interest is being offered through Ag*IDEA by checking the course matrix of the program of interest on the Ag*IDEA website.
  2. Seek approval from the coordinator of the Ag*IDEA program at NC State in which the course is offered.
  3. Complete a Student Acknowledgment Form. In this form, the student acknowledges that the Ag*IDEA courses are taught at collaborating institutions, that the faculty teaching Ag*IDEA courses will award the grades for the courses, that there is a common tuition cost for these courses, and that the courses will appear on their transcript as NC State courses even though they are taught elsewhere. Email the Student Acknowledgment Form to Julie Holder, Ag*IDEA Campus Coordinator for NC State University at You will need to submit this form only once.
  4. Complete an NC State Ag*IDEA Course Enrollment Form for the course you wish to take. This form has to be signed by the departmental Ag*IDEA coordinator. A form is required for each Ag*IDEA course in which you wish to enroll.

Non-Degree Students – Residents of North Carolina

Non-degree students who are residents of North Carolina need to apply to NC State University before enrolling in Ag*IDEA courses. Instructions on how to apply can be found on the Department of Registration and Records website. After being accepted with non-degree student status, students must then enroll in specific 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 through North Carolina State University. Since most of the Ag*IDEA courses are graduate courses, it is suggested that students interested in a subject area contact the appropriate department and apply for admission to a specific degree program. Students would then be permitted to enroll in Ag*IDEA courses as an NDS, Postbaccalaureate Studies (PBS) student. Information on how to apply to graduate school at NC State University can be found on The Graduate School website.

  • A Student ID number

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.
