Prospective Undergraduate Students

Information Sessions and Tours

At this time we are offering live virtual information sessions to meet the needs of our prospective families.

The best way to find out if the College of Engineering at NC State is right for you is to register to attend our virtual information sessions that we offer to prospective students and their families each week.  University Admissions sessions are also available for both first-year and transfer students. When possible, we recommend signing up for one of our Engineering sessions and a University Admissions session.

Self-Guided Tours

As an admitted student, we understand the importance of you being able to experience campus before deciding where to attend college this fall. We are offering you the opportunity for a personalized campus visit experience through a self-guided tour and video playlist featuring current students. Each tour stop will feature a student video description for you to view on your phone. Free guest Wi-Fi is available across campus using ncsu-guest.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are currently prioritizing admitted students for on-campus visits as they are making a decision on where they plan to attend this fall. If you are not an admitted student, you will currently not be able to register for a self-guided tour. We encourage you to view our virtual tour at visit.ncsu.edu and we will notify you of on-campus visit opportunities as soon as we are able to accommodate them.
