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. It is recommended that you speak with the department for the course you are seeking to enroll in for information. NDS students will start enrollment during NDS Open Enrollment.

Enrollment Dates are assigned shortly before the Registration period begins. You can 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 any time 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 Moodle is very flexible as long as you meet obligations and deadlines specified in the course syllabus and by NC State faculty and staff.
