Accessing Slate

Use your NC State Unity ID credentials to log into Slate at https://applygrad.ncsu.edu/manage/. Slate can also be accessed through the Admissions tile in MyPack Portal by selecting “Slate Graduate Admissions” in the left navigation menu.

In order to access Slate, you must have one of the following security roles or be assigned as a Faculty Reviewer:

Dept Grad Admissions Processor (Typically given to a GSC)

  • This role permits a user to process applications, move applications through the departmental reader bins, waive departmental entrance exam requirements, and assign application readers.
  • Someone with this role cannot submit a final department decision.

Dept GRAD App Approver (All DGPs will need this role)

  • This role permits a user to process applications, move applications through the departmental reader bins, waive departmental entrance exam requirements, and assign application readers.
  • Someone with this role can submit a final department decision.

How to Give Faculty Reviewers Access

To give faculty reviewers permission to read applications, you will need to add them to your program’s setup page within the MyPack Portal (Student Information System). Click on the Admissions tile, then on the left navigation click the Grad Admission Setup drop-down and choose Program Setup. Type your program and hit search. Click on the Faculty Reviewers tab and use the +/- buttons to add or remove faculty reviewers (see image below).

Once faculty members have been given access, their security role will be updated overnight and they will then be able to review applications in Slate.
