Deadline Extended: TRIO Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program

We have decided to extend the application deadline for new TRIO Ronald E. McNair applicants to Friday, April 2, 2021.  Applications and all materials must be in our office (via email or dropped off at our office in Park Shops) by 5:00 p.m. on the 2nd.

We recognize students may not have had the opportunity to build stronger relationships with faculty during this academic year. Students are now allowed to submit a recommendation letter and form from an advisor or other staff member at NC State or another institution if they are unable to receive a strong letter of support from an NC State faculty member.

Our application is available online and as a downloadable file. As a part of the application, we have now included an eligibility checklist to assist students in determining their initial eligibility* for the program (*does not guarantee acceptance).

Attached you will find the promotional materials, the application, and the faculty recommendation form. Please feel free to share this information with faculty, staff, and students. More information and application materials are available on our website: or

Thank you for your commitment to our TRIO Programs!
