Graduation Policy for the College of Engineering

Students are eligible to graduate upon satisfactorily completing all the academic requirements of their degree program as specified by their major department, the College of Engineering and the University. The course requirements for graduation appear on the Automated Degree Audit (ADA) for all matriculated engineering students.

Students access their degree audit through MyPack Portal > For Students > Degree Audit.

NC State requires that, in addition to other university, college and departmental requirements, all students must earn a grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0, based on all courses attempted at NC State, in order to receive a baccalaureate degree.

Furthermore, all baccalaureate degree programs in engineering have a graduation requirement of at least a 2.0 GPA for all courses attempted in the student’s major, or the alternative graduation requirement of a C minus or better in all required courses in the student’s major. For this purpose, the required major courses are defined as including only those courses offered by the major department or courses that are substituted for the required major courses.

Note: Of the student’s final 60 hours, 48 must be completed in the College of Engineering at NC State.

Your coordinator of advising can provide you with a list of the required major courses for your curriculum.

When students begin the semester in which they plan to complete their requirements and graduate, they need to complete the steps outlined in the university’s Graduation Process and file an application.

In addition, students must notify their department and file an Application for Degree with their coordinator of advising at NC State.
