Appointment Requests & Office Status – Covid-19 Operations

Our office is still open and serving the legal needs of the students of NC State!

All appointments with the office will now be by phone, Zoom or email.

If you wish to request an appointment, please email our general email account, studentlegal@ncsu.edu and let us know the reason you need to see us. Give us the telephone number you want us to call, as well as several dates and times you are available for a phone or Zoom appointment. We will respond to you with an appointment time as soon as possible.

University Student Legal Services has Notaries on staff that can notarize documents at no cost to students, faculty or staff. Invitation letters, Power of Attorney documents, Board of Examiner Forms, and car titles are all examples of documents commonly notarized by our office.

An appointment is necessary to have any documents notarized by our staff. Notarization appointments can be scheduled between 2:00pm and 3:00pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.  Email our office to schedule a notary appointment.

If you want a Notary appointment, please respond with the following:
  1.  Your available weekdays.  We will schedule accordingly and notify you thereafter.
  2. A PDF of the document(s) that you want to be notarized.
  3. A PDF of the non-expired photo ID (i.e. driver license, passport) that you intend to present to the Notary for verification purposes.  A student/faculty ID or a non-U.S. issued driver license are not acceptable forms of ID for Notary purposes.
We are scheduling notary appointments at 15 minute intervals to avoid having too many people in the office at any given time.  Please be on time for your appointment.  If you are late, it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.

You may also be able to get your documents notarized at your local bank or a UPS store location.  You may also be able to utilize an e-notary and can find an e-notary using the NC Secretary of State’s online search tool.

If you have a criminal/traffic court date, you will want to check the NC AOC website at NC Court Calendar Website to verify your court date.  You should also review the Covid-19 protocols and court procedures in place in your county at https://www.nccourts.gov/covid-19.

Also, please feel free to check our Facebook, Twitter and student legal services accounts for updates concerning relevant legal issues that relate to the campus and community.

Please be aware that due to the volume of emails received, it will take longer than usual to respond to emails. Thank-you for your patience.
