College of Textiles

Requirements and preferred qualifications to transfer (as a current NC State student) into specific College of Textiles majors are listed below.  This includes students who desire to change their major, as well as those who want to add a Textiles major.

Students must meet the listed “Minimum Requirements” in order to submit an online CODA application to transfer (see Application link to the left).  These requirements must either be complete, or the courses in progress, at the time the application is submitted.  Candidates who meet the preferred qualifications outlined below have a higher probability of being approved for transfer.  All admission is competitive and based on space availability in the specific program.  Meeting the preferred qualifications does not guarantee admission to the desired major.

For students interested in any College of Textiles major, it is advisable to take T101 to be more certain of that interest.  If you have questions about transferring to programs in the College of Textiles, contact the Academic Programs office:
