University Administration reserves the right to impose this regulation at any event. Fans are strongly encouraged to only bring bags that are permissible.
These bags include:
  - Bags that are clear plastic vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12" x 6" x 12."
  - One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
  - Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand.
  - Diaper bags must be accompanied by a child (and may be subject to searching).

  - Purses larger than a clutch bag.
  - Coolers
  - Briefcases
  -Backpacks/Cinch bags/fanny packs
  -Luggage
  -Computer bags/camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.

Exceptions will be granted for medically necessary items, working personnel and media, but are strongly encouraged to place in a clear bag for easier entry. These exceptions will enter through designated gates and be subject to screening and/or bag inspections. Exception to this regulation is the Game Zone during football games.

Portfolium: The New Digital Portfolio and Career Readiness Network

Residency Determination Service: Graduate Students

Are you a graduate (doctoral, masters, certificate) student seeking to establish North Carolina residency for tuition purposes? In compliance with state law effective May 14, 2018, the University of North Carolina system now requires graduate students to request a residency classification from the new Residency Determination Service (RDS). RDS is the entity responsible for all new and re-classifications of residency in North Carolina. Any graduate student who is seeking an initial determination or residency re-classification will need to complete the new RDS online interview. Students will answer a series of questions through the RDS online interview to determine residency classification for tuition purposes. For additional questions about the process of residency classification, please visit www.NCresidency.org or contact Dean Campbell at cdcampbe@ncat.edu or 336-285-2373.

Read & Write Literacy Software

Read & Write is a web-based reading and writing literacy software. Students, faculty and staff are able to access the software with their “aggies.ncat.edu” or “ncat.edu” email account. 

The easy-to-use toolbar makes documents, files and web pages more accessible. Read & Write is a big confidence booster for anyone who needs a little support with their reading and writing at school or in the workplace. Its friendly literacy features help English Language Learners, as well as people with learning difficulties or requiring dyslexia tools. From hearing emails or documents read out loud to text prediction, picture dictionaries and summary highlighters, Read & Write makes lots of everyday literacy tasks simpler, quicker and more accurate.

For more information, please contact Kimberly Burke, Learning Specialist, at kburke@ncat.edu, or 336-285-4095.
