Step 3: Register for Your Class

Once you have completed your application and been accepted as an NDS student, you will receive your Unity ID (and/or student ID number) and password via email, which you will then use to register for your classes. NDS students may only register for classes after the enrollment period for full-time students has ended. Enrollment deadlines vary by semester, but are generally one week before the last day to add a class.

You may then visit the MyPack Portal, use your Unity ID and password to log in, and register for your classes. MyPack portal is also a self-service system for students to update personal or academic information as well as a way to review semester schedules.

Step 4: Start Your Class

As the semester or summer session nears, the lead instructor for your course will be in contact with information about accessing the course. Most distance education courses at NC State are accessible through Wolfware. You will use your Unity ID and password to log in.
