  11. MINORS • Most departments offer graduate level minors at masters and doctoral level • Most popular minor is in statistics • Requirements for Statistics Minor • Masters Level 9 hours • PhD level 18 hours • Our 561, 562, 751, 752, 753 are qualifying courses within the requirements for Statistics minor •

  12. ACCESS • Unity ID and Password • Unity ID: first initial of first name, first initial of middle name, first 6 letters of last name. • Unity Password: last 4 digits of student ID number (the 000 number), followed by the two digit month and day of birth • 515-HELP or   MyPack Portal The MyPack Portal is the University’s one-stop access point for information. • All-Campus Card • must be registered first • Talley Student Center • identifies you as a member of the NC State community • used to access services around the campus, including meal plans, AllCampus Account purchases, gym access, and the library

  21. STATEMENT REGARDING POTENTIAL FUNDING for STUDENTS WHO ENTER UNFUNDED All students who enter the program without funding (both domestic and international) should be fully prepared to absorb the full cost associated with completing your graduate degree at NC State University.   There is ABSOLUTELY NO guarantee that funding will be available or offered during your tenure at NC State.  However: Students who enter the program without funding will become eligible for funding consideration once they pass written comprehensive examinations in microeconomic theory and macroeconomic theory.  There are only two opportunities allowed to pass these written exams. 2) There is some small chance for exceptional students to get funding the year immediately following a pass on the written exams, but these students will be competing against all other unfunded students who have also passed written exams. 3) Odds for funding increase in subsequent years, especially for students who are doing particularly well in the program academically. 4) Students who are offered funding will be appointed as either teaching assistants or research assistants.  All assistantships consider the student's previous academic performance; research assistantships are further based on ability of the student to contribute to a research project (this usually means strong computer and econometric skills) and the match in interests between the student and the professor directing the project.  5) Students who receive funding will be bound by the funding eligibility time limits imposed by the University.
