Student Affairs Programs

Student Affairs works closely with the leadership, faculty, and staff at our institutions to foster System-wide, data-driven strategies for enhancing student success, access, and financial aid.

The office of Student Affairs regularly collaborates with institution administrators to implement policies and regulations regarding athletics, student health, financial aid, admissions, and campus safety. As part of these efforts, the office organizes the annual Behavioral Health Convening. In addition, Student Affairs oversees two System-wide student experiential opportunities: the Marian Drane Graham Scholars program for rising seniors and the Presidential Scholars program for recent graduates.

The office is also responsible for access programs (including College Foundation of North Carolina, a Pathways Partnership with all NC higher education, and the statewide Countdown to College program) and works closely with committees and educational agencies on policies related to minimum admissions and course requirements.

Student Affairs also works alongside the NCSEAA (North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority) to coordinate the distribution of student financial aid information and state awards.
