What Students Are Saying

3.68 Average Rating
I will give the same tips to prospective students, as my family. friends, and church members gave to me. Never go in with the mindset that college is time to let loose. Doing that could put you into an academic mishap, which could result in not being able to continue due to lack of academic achievement. I will also say this, NCCU's financial aid office is always crowded the day of move in. I recommend that if you are getting any financial assistance that you take the necessary measures early. Once students receive access to NCCU Banner/MYEol that is the best way to keep track of financial aid. Lastly, have fun, but not to the point your grades suffer.

Stay focused and remember that you are in college to be a student first. It is okay to socialize and hang out but don't forget to do your work. It's OK to be different. Remember that getting behind on your work is easy, it's the catching up that is hard. Schedule to meet all of your professors so that they know you by face not just name.
Kaneesha from Angier, NC
If you plan on going to NCCU be prepared not only for traditions in the term of events but also a great variety of classes with some of the best professors.
Alexis from Woodbridge, VA
Make sure you get your financial aid taken care of first thing! You can not blame anyone but yourself if you aren't proactive. Its COMPLETELY your responsibility to take care of business. Make sure you develop a relationship with your professors and peers, a positive one at that. Take advantage of all the FREE tools, seminars, mentoring programs, tutoring etc available on campus.

Remember to bring things to make your room feel like it is yours.
Kwame from DUDLEY, NC
Study first, party later! Make sure you turn in all forms before they are due, and make payments before deadlines!!
Olivia from Joliet, IL
Don't get caught up in the party life and hanging out all the time...if you do you will end up paying for a real expensive party (tuition). I don't believe that any party is worth $4,000-$5,000. Also, learn to make friends and don't sit in your room all semester or you will miss out on a lot of fun opportunities. Any college student will tell you: COLLEGE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT...if you want to have a good time then you will versus if you sit in your room all the time, then your college experience will be realllll lame!
A Proud Eagle from Raleigh, NC
Study hard, then have fun.
Justine from Raleigh, NC
Don't procrastinate and there is no excuse to not have your homework in on time because you are given a syllabus of all of your assignments on the first day. The only thing is unlike in high school, teachers don't remind you when assignments are due so you have to be very responsible and on top of your work.
