Walk-in Advising

Walk-In Advising for Students Exploring Majors

Academic Advising Services (AAS) provides Walk-in Advising for students who are exploring and/or changing undergraduate majors at NC State.  Cross-curricular advisors can help students evaluate potential majors, navigate the on-campus transfer process (CODA), and plan appropriate coursework as students transition between majors.

Appointments are not available. To minimize wait times, advising sessions may be limited to 20 minutes per student. Students who are planning to remain in their College or major need to see their assigned academic advisor.




Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.


Wednesday: 2:00-4:00 p.m.

Please note that walk-in advising will not be available these dates:

Office Location:  second floor University College Commons (formerly FYC Commons), 2751 Cates Avenue (between Student Health and  Carmichael Gym); check-in at desk on second floor.

Please arrive at least 20 minutes before the close of walk-in hours.  We are glad to help you if you are exploring majors or changing to a major outside of your current College.  Transfer and NDS students: please review additional information. 


Checklist for walk-in advising:

  1. Look at Explore Majors & Minors to see your options and review requirements to change majors on the Change of Degree Application-CODA site.
  2. In MyPack portal, go to the degree audit entry screen and run a “what if” audit to see how your credits “fit” in another major.  You can save up to three intended majors.
  3. On the degree audit entry screen, click on Check CODA Requirements.  You can see if you meet the minimum and preferred requirements for the major under consideration.  There may be courses you need to take before submitting a CODA application.
  4. Write your questions and bring them with you to make the most of your advising meeting.  If the meeting is about registration for an upcoming term, make a list of courses you are thinking about taking.
