Packing Up Pre-Arrival Series

Packing Up is a series of virtual pre-arrival sessions that cover topics of importance to incoming international students. Held in the months prior to arrival, sessions leverage the expertise found on NC State’s campus to address topics like housing, student life, budgeting in the US, immigration updates, and course enrollment. Through Packing Up, we aim to introduce new international students to the tools, resources, and information they will need to be successful at NC State.

All sessions will take place via Zoom from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time. Registration is required and the registration link will be emailed to new students at least one week prior to the session date.
