Student Success and Advising Center (SSAC)

Students in the Court of Carolina

The Student Success and Advising Center (SSAC) serves as an academic and co-curricular support and resource space for students within the College of Education. Within SSAC, students, faculty and staff may locate resources, information and staff dedicated to undergraduate student advising, graduate student support, student recruitment and retention outreach, the NC State Teaching Fellows Program, the university’s partnership with Wake County STEM Early College High School, diversity and inclusion initiatives, as well as student success, engagement and leadership opportunities. 

The academic advising team provides professional advising for all freshmen, sophomores and transfer students enrolled in programs within the College of Education. As trained professionals, academic advisors supply valuable information about majors, courses, careers, requirements, policies, social life, academic support and transition issues.

Land Pledge

We would like to honor the land beneath us. North Carolina State University sits on land that was originally stewarded by two Indigenous tribes: the Tuscarora and the Catawba tribes.
