Each person affiliated with NC State University is assigned a Unity ID and password. Your Unity ID and password allow you access to NC State e-mail, computing labs, MyPack Portal, etc.
Your Unity ID was produced by the Office of Information Technology and mailed to you by the Department of Registration and Records. Your Unity ID is never longer than 8 characters and is automatically generated from your name in a two-step procedure:
- A string of letters is created using the initials of your first and middle names and the first six letters of your last name, all in lower case.
- If this string matches one previously created for someone else, the last letter will be replaced with or followed by a numeral.
If you have lost your SRP letter, you can find your Unity ID in WolfPAW. Log in to your WolfPAW account and view your “Application Status.”
Your initial (default) 8-digit password is:
- the last four digits of your campus ID* number followed by
- the four digits of your birth month and day
- For example, if your campus ID number ends in 1234 and your birthday is January 31, then your initial password is 12340131.
If you have lost your SRP letter, you can find your Campus ID* number in WolfPAW. Log in to your WolfPAW account and view your “Application Status.”
You may have already changed your password.
Contact the OIT helpdesk at (919) 515-HELP if your password is not working.
NC State requires all students to change their password one every year. Since your initial password is determined by formula, it is required that you change your password before you log into the MyPack Portal. This will help protect your academic and personal information.
Generally, your Advising Hold has already been released for Enrollment. However, certain programs require the completion of all placement tests and surveys before enrollment can begin. This may include Foreign Language, Math, and/or Chemistry placement tests and college/department surveys. Advising Holds are normally released after consulting with your advisor. If for any reason you still have an Advising Hold, please contact your SRP Advisor.
