Frequently Asked Questions

What are the testing requirements for admission?

Most applicants take the SAT or ACT more than once, in which case we use the best score for each section (SAT only). Applications will not be processed without recent official scores. Please note that NCCU requires scores for the writing section of the SAT or ACT. The writing section of the test is included with the SAT, but if you are taking the ACT you must make sure to register for the "ACT Plus Writing."
