Minors on Campus

  • NC State welcomes minors who come to the university for limited periods of time to visit the university and to participate in its educational, enrichment, and athletic programs and activities including visitation programs, research experiences, and workshops.  In order to protect these students, the University has created a policy that ensures their welfare while on our campus. Any faculty engaging with minors should first read the policy to ensure compliance.
