Information for New Students

Please use the information below to assist you with your transition to NC State!

Welcome to Social Work!

Whether you are a new first-year student or new transfer we welcome you! We look forward to working with you to earn your degree.

Once accepted, please visit the admissions page to read through the  New Student Checklist. This list has nearly everything you will need to know, including how to confirm your enrollment, parking information, housing, and where to send transcripts.

After reading through this, we recommend that you contact our Program Coordinator, Anthony Bennett. Our staff, faculty and advisors will be your key insights to success at NC State. They will help you plan your academic success through hands-on advising and support.

Please visit our  Advising page to learn more about advisors, the role they play, your responsibilities as a student and additional forms that will assist with degree plans. The degree plans are especially helpful for students planning on declaring a  minor or double-major in another discipline. 

*BSW New Transfers* – If you have an Associate’s Degree from an accredited community college, make sure that the community college sends a transcript that says “Degree Awarded” or “Degree Received”. This lack of wording will affect the way your transfer credits appear on your degree audit.
