Question:

What does UGS or PBS mean?

Answer:

Both are Non-Degree Studies classifications. UGS stands for
"Undergraduate Studies," and PBS means "Post-Baccalaureate Studies."
UGS students are non-matriculated (non-degree) students without an
undergraduate degree and PBS students are non-matriculated students
who have already completed a bachelors degree.

Individuals taking classes under the UGS or PBS classification can
take undergraduate or graduate courses to:

Meet NC State University admission requirements, Transfer credits to
another university, Update professional skills, or Enrich personal
experiences. Flexible enrollment options are available to meet
demanding and busy schedules.

Enrollment options include:

On-campus courses, Day and evening classes, and Distance education
courses, which utilize a variety of delivery technologies.

Students interested in taking courses as a student in Non-Degree
Studies should review information on the Non-Degree Studies website:
