If you are interested in studying at NC State as an undergraduate student, but don’t have the required TOEFL/IELTS score for full admission, conditional admission may be the perfect solution.
Students who are conditionally admitted to NC State study in the IEP before entering their academic programs. After completing the IEP, conditionally admitted students proceed to their major without having to take an additional TOEFL or IELTS Academic.
If you are interested in conditional admission, apply directly to NC State as an undergraduate student.
- Students do NOT apply for conditional admission itself.
- It is necessary to have at least a TOEFL iBT 50 or IELTS Academic 5.5 to be eligible for conditional admission.
- If you enroll in the IEP as an English language student and decide to apply to NC State while you in the program, you are not eligible for conditional admission to the university.
Advantages of Conditional Admission through the IEP
- No additional TOEFL/IELTS is required. Complete the IEP and go on to your major.
- Strengthen your English without affecting your GPA
- Study with experienced instructors who understand the needs of international students
- Learn American culture and study skills
- Receive tutoring at no extra cost
Undergraduate Conditional Admission
How it works
Students who are offered conditional admission from the NC State Office of Undergraduate Admissions will be enrolled in a degree program after they have successfully completed IEP Level 6 with a grade of 85% (B) or higher and have met all other exit criteria.
Conditionally admitted students must follow all IEP rules and academic requirements. Only when students successfully exit Level 6 can they begin their undergraduate classes at NC State. Failure to meet IEP requirements results in the loss of NC State’s offer of admission.
NC State Pathway Program
New for Fall 2019
Conditionally admitted undergraduate students are eligible to apply for the NC State Pathway Program. In the Pathway Program, students take a combination of IEP courses and undergraduate credit courses at the same time allowing them to earn credits towards their graduation requirements.
