In order to be considered eligible for the Pathway Program, you must be conditionally admitted to an undergraduate program of study at NC State.
- Take the NC State Math Placement Test (you will need your unity account information)
- Apply for the Pathway Program
Apply early, seats are limited. Your application is not considered complete until you have taken the Math Placement Test.
- Spaces in Pathway are limited. Not all students who apply will be accepted into the Pathway Program. Students will be evaluated for the Pathway Program on a variety of factors including test scores, completion of all application steps, etc.
- Final placement in the Pathway Program (1 Semester Pathway or 2 Semester Pathway) will be determined by the online IEP placement test that all new students are required to take upon arrival to NC State. If your placement is LOWER than indicated for Pathway, even if you have a TOEFL iBT score that meets the Pathway requirement, you will be required to begin in the non-credit regular IEP.
- Students that use AP credit to place out of MA 141 are encouraged to enroll in the regular full-time IEP instead of the Pathway Program.
- Students participating in the Pathway Program will be required to sign a Statement of Understanding indicating that they understand the rules, expectations, and costs of the program.
- If admitted, you will receive an I-20 for a Pathway Program from NC State.
