FAQs for Statistics Online Programs

How do I register for classes?

You will need to log into MyPack Portal to access Enrollment. You can add a class by going to Navigation: Student Self Service > Enrollment > Enrollment Dates. The Enrollment Date is the day you can begin registration. Non-Degree Studies students are not required to meet with an Advisor. NDS students will start enrollment during NDS Open Enrollment.

Students accepted into either Certificate Program or the Masters Program need to speak with the Program Coordinator (919-515-1916) each semester for a brief advising session before they can enroll in courses.

Enrollment Dates are assigned shortly before the Registration period begins. Visit NC State’s Registration and Records website for additional information regarding enrollment period.

How do I access the classroom?

Our online statistics courses will use NCSU’s Moodle, the course management system that is used to communicate with the class, deliver course content, facilitate collaboration, manage assignments and grades. You may access your classroom and Moodle by logging into WolfWare using your NCSU ID and password. WolfWare allows you to view your existing courses or search on other relevant courses. Go to WolfWare Info to learn about using Wolfware.

Each faculty member in charge of a course will host online office hours. In addition, each course will have teaching assistants available to give help. Or you may schedule one-on-one telephone calls with our staff to address your needs.

Do I need to be online at a specific time?

Our online courses are asynchronous. You can access NC State’s Moodle classroom at anytime that is convenient and from any place with internet access. Some online office hours and chat sessions may be set up for a specific time, but these are optional.

We believe online courses are ideal for those who continue to work professionally, travel, or have family obligations. Your time spent in the classroom is very flexible as long as you meet classroom obligations specified in the course syllabus and by NC State faculty and staff.
