Statistics Program FAQs

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.

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.

Can military personnel get the in-state tuition rate?

Active duty military students (and their dependents) can qualify for in-state tuition if they are currently stationed at an NC installation or if their home of record with the military is NC but they are currently stationed elsewhere.

Military members (and their dependents) who have separated from active duty status within the last 3 years, can qualify for in-state tuition under the Choice Act as long as they are using the GI Bill to pay for school and can show that they will have an NC place of residence by the start date of the semester in question.
