The Student Success and Advising Center is all about student achievement, quality academic advising, and meaningful involvement. We realize that transitioning from high school to college or transferring between colleges can be difficult, so we are here to help. College life brings with it new experiences as well as new demands for students, so having someone in your corner can make all the difference. We are primarily an advising center for freshmen and sophomore students, but also serve as a resource for all College of Education students by offering services and programming such as student success workshops, student engagement opportunities, and leadership development opportunities.
Advising is an ongoing process between advisor and advisee which allows students to reflect on their interests, abilities, and values in order to develop a plan of study – both in and out of the classroom – which maximizes their potential. Advisors are trained professionals who can supply you with invaluable information about majors, courses, careers, requirements, policies, social life, academic support and transition issues. In other words, your advisor is a one stop shop for your college-related questions and concerns.

Announcements & Reminders:
Professors Need Love Too: Thank a Teacher!
The NC State Thank a Teacher program began in Fall 2010 to allow students the opportunity to thank NC State professors who have gone beyond their standard roles and made a positive impact upon their lives. If a professor has made this kind of impact upon your university experience, please make a Thank a Teacher submission at http://go.ncsu.edu/thankateacher to let your instructor know how much you value him or her. For a professor, an unsolicited "thank you" from a student can be the highlight of the semester. You can also thank your distance education professors as well. All love is welcome!
Please contact Emily Walsh or (919) 515-7018 if you have questions or would like more information about the program.
Professional Development Opportunities for Teacher Education Majors
Effective teachers commit to furthering their own learning as well as their students' learning. Practicing educators take part in regular professional development opportunities in order to be effective and engaged teachers. The College of Education fosters this career-long commitment to learning and professional development by requiring our undergraduate students seeking initial licensure to complete a series of Professional Growth Units, or PGUs. All undergraduate students in licensure majors who entered NC State in fall 2011 or later must complete a minimum of 4.5 PGUs prior to graduation. All MAT students must complete a minimum of 2 PGUs prior to graduation.
The Office of Professional Education is excited to offer four professional development sessions to initial licensure teacher education majors every semester. Topics, descriptions, and dates can be found on the Office of Professional Education's website. You will need to sign up to attend any of these events via the link provided on the website.
