During the Fall Semester Prior to Starting at NC State
During the fall semester, many of our students decide to take some courses at local community colleges. This is a fine idea and a good way to stay current with course material. If you decide to go this route, we recommend you prioritize the following courses during the fall semester in the following way:
|NC State Courses||Community College Courses|
|BIO 181: Intro Biology I||BIO 112 – General Biology II|
|BIO 183: Intro Biology II||BIO 111 – General Biology I|
|CH 101/102 – Chemistry: A Molecular Science||CHM 151 – General Chemistry I|
|CH 201/202 – Chemistry: A Quantitative Science||CHM 152 – General Chemistry II|
|MA 141 – Calculus I||MAT 271 – Calculus I|
Another popular and wonderful opportunity is to use the fall semester to travel and participate in one of our Study Abroad programs. Click here for more information on these programs in general. The Prague Connection is a unique program for first-year students who are admitted to NC State as part of Spring Connection. Prague Connection gives students the opportunity to earn NC State credits in Prague during the fall semester, preparing them for academic and social life prior to officially starting their degree program on campus in the spring. Program and Scholarship Application Deadlines are usually around the middle of May, but scholarship application deadlines are usually around the start of May.
