Answers to many common questions can be found in the Poole Course Enrollment Calendar and Guidelines page, the Policies and Resources page, as well as the Poole Course and Curriculum Updates page. It is your responsibility to understand your degree audit and degree progression.
Waitlists, class restrictions, and other questions while registering for classes
Course availability and offerings change often; continue to check back on classes to see if seats have come open or there are alternative classes/sections. Please read the common questions below. If you cannot enroll in a course because the system is not recognizing that you have met the prerequisites, or you feel that you are being denied enrollment in error, please contact your academic advisor.
There are several different types of holds that can be placed on your account that will prevent you from registering for classes. Some of the more common types of holds are financial, health services and judicial holds. Academic advisors can not release any of these holds, please contact the department who issued the hold to find out how you can get that hold removed.
Every semester you will have an advising hold placed on your account. You will receive an email from your academic advisor early in the semester with instructions on how you can have that hold released. In general, you will have 2 options. You can do an online advising module and sign a certification statement to have your hold released or you can have a one on one appointment with your academic advisor to have your hold released. Advisors WILL NOT release advising holds during drop-in.
Option 1: Online advising: go to your Wolfware/Moodle page. Under “My WolfWare” open your “Projects” tab. Then find Poole Online Registration Advising and enter that moodle page. Complete the online video (with embedded quiz questions) and then complete the Advising Certification Statement (you have to complete the entire video and quizzes before you can access the certification statement). Your advising hold will be released within 1-2 business days, though likely sooner.
Option 2: Appointment with your academic advisor, scheduled through go.ncsu.edu/gps. Specific instructions detailing how to schedule an advising appointment can be found further down this FAQ page.
Declaring or changing a Poole major and/or concentration
Poole students are encouraged to declare their major (Business, Accounting, or Economics) by the end of their second semester. Information on declaring your Poole major can be found at go.ncsu.edu/pooledeclare.
Students in the Accounting and Business Administration majors will have the option of declaring a concentration. This is typically done during a student’s Junior year, after taking 300-level courses in the different concentration options. Information on declaring your Poole concentration can be found at go.ncsu.edu/pooledeclare.
Common degree audit questions
Your degree audit shows all requirements to earn your degree. It is your responsibility to appropriately plan your path to graduation and make satisfactory progress toward your degree.
Transferring classes from a different institution
Poole students are permitted to complete courses at other institutions. You can find known equivalent courses at institutions around the world using the NC State Transfer Credit Database. If a class is not in the transfer credit database you can have it evaluated to see how it will transfer in by completing the Request for Degree Requirement Exception form. Many degree requirements can be completed at other institutions, but a C- or better must be earned at the other institution for the credit to be accepted by NC State. If you plan to take classes at another institution, be sure to complete a Request for Course Transfer Approval form before completing the class. The Residency Requirements for NC State, Poole College of Management, and your major do require that a certain amount of courses for your degree have to be taken at NC State.
