  4. What factors does the Wilson College of Textiles consider for admission into STEP?
    We are looking for students who are on-track (should they continue their current level of academic achievement) to be strong candidates for admission to NC State the following year. We look at grades, course selection, extra-curricular activities, leadership roles, unique life experiences, writing abilities and the application answers are well thought out and thorough.
