Student Commuter Program

NC State encourages its commuter students to carpool or take alternative transportation — walking, biking, flying, or anything besides driving — as a way for you to save money, save the earth, and save your car from wear and tear as part of the university’s WolfTrails student commuter benefits program.

NC State’s Commuter Benefits

Students who carpool are encouraged to split the cost of a permit to park on campus, and they’ll each receive 8 one-day-use scratch-off permits to use during the year when they can’t or don’t want to carpool, like exam days.

Students who take alternative transportation can also receive 8 scratch-off permits to use during the year.

Restrictions for Applying

Of course there’s always the fine print. In order to qualify for the WolfTrails commuter incentive program, you must meet the following criteria:

  • You can’t have a valid NC State parking permit
  • You must live at least a half mile from the closest Wolfline route
  • You must be a full-time and actively enrolled NC State student
  • You need to have proof of vehicle registration and a local address
