The course offerings for Spring 2015 are now available. This schedule is not final; changes may be necessitated by issues of room or instructor availability.

Please refer to the Current Students section of the MBA webpage for the Spring 2015 schedule spreadsheet. For your reference when working with the spreadsheet, please be aware of your curriculum code.

Course drops

January 21, 2015 is the last day to drop a class for tuition refunds.

March 4, 2015 is the last day to withdraw or drop a course, without a W grade, or change from credit to audit.

Please refer to the academic calendar for more information about drop/add dates and other important dates.

Late Fees:

Students must register by university-mandated deadline dates or pay late fees. Deadlines and late fees are enforced by the university and not the MBA program. There is a $250 late fee for manual registration through the MBA office. Students must prepay tuition and late fees before they can register.

Go to MyPack Portal to review the registration process and to see how the MBA courses are listed with the University. You may notice that there are some differences compared to the attached course schedules. If information is missing (such as classrooms, course dates, and course times), refer to Spring 2015 Spreadsheet for that information.

One-credit Hour Courses

One hour courses for Spring 2015 are available on the Current Students webpage. One hour courses will follow university-mandated drop dates for the semester. The MBA program will no longer use first and second session drop dates. Drop/add dates for one-hour classes will be the same as three credit hour classes that meet for the whole semester. Please check your calendar carefully when registering for these courses. Drop/add dates and tuition payment/refund for one-hour courses will adhere to the university policy. The last day that you can receive tuition adjustment for a one credit hour class in the Spring 2015 semester is January 21, 2015. Please check your calendar carefully when registering for these courses.

Spring 2015

We will be using a ”delayed registration process” for people who want to register for a class that is not part of their curriculum code.  For an example, if a Professional Evening student wants to take an Online MBA class, they will not be able to register until December 10th, after online students have registered. Please check the Spring 2015 course spreadsheet for further details.

Go to MyPack Portal to review the registration process and to see how the MBA courses are listed with the University. You may notice that there are some differences compared to the attached course schedules. If information is missing (such as classrooms, course dates, and course times), refer to Spring 2015 Spreadsheet for that information.

Continuous Registration and Graduation

Students intending to graduate in May 2015 must adhere to the continuous registration policy. You either must be registered or on an approved leave of absence every fall and spring semester (the policy does not apply to the summer); otherwise, the Graduate School will terminate your graduate program. If you intend to take a leave of absence, please contact your academic advisor, Judee Lonnee at mba-advising@ncsu.edu.  Students intending to graduate in May 2015 must register and complete at least one Spring 2015 MBA credit hour, complete the total hours required (39 for professional and online, and 55 for full-time), and fulfill their concentration requirements if applicable.

Main Campus Course Suffixes vs. RTP Campus Course Suffixes

Courses that have a .000 suffix (e.g., MBA 522.001) are taught on main campus; courses that have a .600 suffix (e.g., MBA 522.601) are taught at RTP or are online courses. 

Student Classification and Tuition

Tuition is based on student classification (curriculum code) and not section number. Curriculum codes are: Full-time – MBF, Professional Evening Main Campus – MBP, Professional Evening RTP Campus – MBZ and Online Students – MRZ.  With the exception of one hour courses and practica, courses will do not have dual section numbers for the same location.

Part-time/Professional Students who began in Fall 2014 – Core Classes

To stay on the suggested course sequence, main campus students should take MBA 540.001-Production and Operations Management and/or MBA 560.002-Marketing Management.  RTP students should take MBA 505.601 - Economics for Managers and/or MBA 560.601 - Marketing Management.

Tuition Payment

Once you have registered, check the MyPack Portal for your online tuition and fees bill. Neither fall tuition rates nor payment deadlines have been set yet for Main Campus and RTP by the Cashier's Office.  Check the MBA website about tuition payment and deadlines.
