Online Graduate Statistics Courses

Step 1: Apply for Admission to NC State as a Non-Degree Studies (NDS) Student

University as a Non-Degree Studies (NDS) Student

Note: If you are a degree- or non-degree-seeking student who has been continuously enrolled, you may register for available online courses through MyPack portal.

As an NDS student, you may register for a maximum course load of 8 hours per semester on a space-available basis. Some courses carry prerequisites or are limited to degree-seeking students, so review the course schedule to determine your eligibility.

If new NDS applications are not currently being accepted, you must wait to apply until after the start-of-term lock-out ends. You will not be able to take a class until next term.

To register as a new NDS student:

    • Begin by checking your eligibility for Non-Degree Studies (NDS) status. To be eligible to apply for NDS, prospective students must:
      • Have graduated from high school at least one year before beginning enrollment.
      • Be eligible to return to any previous institution(s) attended.
      • Maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 at all times to remain eligible to continue.
      • Have accumulated less than 30 hours of total credit as a NDS student. NDS students are limited to a total of 30 hours of credit in NDS status. Students with 29 hours attempted will be allowed to register for the next term even if their enrollment in that future term will exceed the 30-hour limit, but they will not be activated for any subsequent terms once they have accumulated or exceeded 30 hours of credit. For more details, please see the NDS Enrollment rule.
    • If you meet the criteria for enrolling as an NDS student, and:
      • you have never attended NC State as a degree-seeking student, OR
      • you graduated with a degree from NC State and wish to enroll as a NDS student, OR
      • you previously attended NC State as an NDS student, but have not enrolled in courses for a year or longer,

Complete the online application. All applications require official transcripts.

Note: NDS applications are good for a full year. For example, if you apply for Summer I, you do not need to submit a separate application for Summer II, Fall, or Spring.

The Registration & Records website provides additional information and answers to questions about Non-Degree Studies at NC State University.

Step 3: Register for Your Class

Once you have completed your application and been accepted as an NDS student, you will receive your Unity ID (and/or student ID number) and password via email, which you will then use to register for your classes.  NDS students may only register for classes after the enrollment period for full-time students has ended.  Enrollment deadlines vary by semester, but are generally one week before the last day to add a class. Special note: restrictions are often put on classes to give priority to “online only” students. Thus, you may need to contact our online graduate program coordinator, Dr. Donna Barton, at donna.barton@ncsu.edu to be enrolled.

You may then visit the MyPack Portal, use your Unity ID and password to log in, and register for your classes. MyPack portal is also a self-service system for students to update personal or academic information as well as a way to review semester schedules.
