About Us

North Carolina State University wants to be your partner in education. We understand that you have a large personal and financial investment in the education of your son or daughter and, thus, in our State. The Office of Parents & Families Services is here to keep you connected and informed; to encourage you to play an active and constructive role in your student. We want what you want, success for your son or daughter, and we welcome you to our NC State family by engaging you in our community in a way that promotes the success of that student we all care so much about.
