Changing Majors is hard at NCSU. Since students enter into their major from the start and majors don't over lap it becomes a six year graduation rate. This is why the school's overall graduation four year rate is low. Advising is not helpful. Business department changes required courses, for example computer skills test. Would not recommend NCSU for Out of State students.
“NC State is a university focused more onQuite BrightEducation
NC State is a university focused more on athletics than education. Additionally NC State has cost creep that continues to rise each academic year, yet nothing improves. There are many hidden costs attending NC State because of ridiculous student fees. The education quality is not very challenging or collaborative. In fact there is a division in campus culture between liberal arts and sciences. Many classes are divided to meet the needs of engineers or liberal arts majors. As for transfer credits you will find that those hard earned credits do not go far in out of state colleges. Nearly 70% of my NC State credits were accepted as low level credits at Texas Tech, UCLA, Arizona State and other colleges. The advantage of attending NC State is appropriate for a student seeking a degree that wishes to stay in North Carolina.
