summer enrollment
Summer Enrollment
  • During the summer, courses at NC State are offered during one of two 5-week terms or a 10-week term.
  • Since these are accelerated terms of enrollment, the VA uses its own formula to calculate the semester equivalent when figuring your enrollment status.
  • The following slides show the breakdown of enrollment status for undergraduates and graduate students for 10-week and 5-week summer terms.
