Office of Undergraduate Admissions

The NC State Office of Undergraduate Admissions is excited to announce two significant changes to our 2020 admissions process that will provide greater access to future applicants. Starting with the upcoming 2020 application season, NC State’s early action deadline will be November 1 for first-year applicants. We will also accept self-reported test scores for all domestic applicants. 

We hope by extending our early action deadline to November 1 this will hopefully reduce some of the stress associated with the application process for both you and your students. Students will need to submit any supporting materials to complete their application within a week of the deadline to receive a final admission decision at the end of January.

This fall NC State will accept self-reported test scores from domestic freshman and transfer applicants through the Common Application or Coalition Application. We hope this will reduce the financial burden many families experience when applying to multiple institutions. Only students who ultimately decide to enroll at NC State will need to have official test scores sent to our office prior to enrolling. 

If you have any questions, please contact our office at 919-515-2434 or We look forward to continuing to work with you and value your feedback in helping us make our application process more accessible to all.
