Candidates who meet the Preferred Qualifications outlined below have a higher probability of being approved for transfer.  All admission is competitive and based on academic record and space availability in the College.  Meeting the preferred qualifications does not guarantee admission.

  • Cumulative NC State GPA of 3.0 or better AND an overall cumulative 3.0 GPA for ALL Poole courses attempted (includes those in the list and any additional).


  • Completion of 6 hours of Poole courses with a cumulative 3.0 GPA on these courses. These courses must be taken at NC State and must be selected from the following list: (ACC 200, ACC 210, EC 201, EC 202, EC 205).  In addition, an overall cumulative 3.0 GPA is “preferred” for ALL Poole courses attempted (includes those in the list and any additional).

Note:  Students should apply for only one Poole College of Management major, as decisions are made college-wide rather than by department.  Applying for multiple majors within Poole does not increase a student’s chance of admission.
