What Students Are Saying

3.68 Average Rating
North Carolina Central University is the best school in North Carolina. The professors an administration there strive and help you with what they can. North Carolina Central University was the best option for me because it opened up new doors in my life.
Charisma from RoanokeRapids, NC
Overall, this is a very nice school. I was hesitant to attend at first because I went to a PWI (predominantly white institute) for high school although I am african american. I truly have enjoyed my experience at NCCU and will continue out the rest of my education here.
