Questions about your application?
How do I create an ApplyNDS account?
If you have never logged into the NDS Application portal, visit http://go.ncsu.edu/apply_nds, and select ‘Create an account’ under ‘First-time users.’ Follow the prompts as necessary.
I submitted by NDS application but I made an error. How do I correct that information after my application has been submitted?
Physical Addresses and Email Addresses can be edited from the Application Status Page within your ApplyNDS account. If you have made other errors in your NDS application, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your full name and your application number.
How long will it take to receive a decision regarding my NDS application?
Applications should be reviewed within five business days after applications and all necessary accompanying materials are received. If an application is submitted during peak volume periods, a decision may take longer to be processed. All decision notices are emailed to the address used to create your ApplyNDS account.
If you do not receive an email within five business days after submitting your completed application, please contact email@example.com for assistance.
I was previously enrolled as an NDS Student at NC State. Do I have to apply again?
Previous NDS students must re-apply to the program if it has been at least one year since you have been enrolled as an NDS student, or since you first applied to the NDS program. For example, if you apply and are admitted for a fall term and do not enroll, you would need to re-apply for enrollment for the following fall term.
