Undergraduate Admissions

Application Process


All undergraduate students applying for admission or readmission to North Carolina Central University must complete an online application form. Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis for each term. Degree seeking students who wish to be admitted to the university during the summer sessions must file a completed application with the appropriate admissions office prior to each summer session registration date. Applications for attending summer sessions are necessary from non-NCCU and special students only. These applications must be received in the Office of University College prior to each summer session registration date. The university reserves the right to adjust deadline dates according to enrollment constraints.

Submit Your Transcript

Some North Carolina public high schools have the capability to submit transcripts electronically when you apply online through the North Carolina Window of Information on Student Education system. We encourage you to visit your school counselor to verify coursework and grades prior to requesting an electronic transcript. To send an electronic transcript, you must:

  • Complete the NCCU online application.
  • Make sure you have entered the following information in your profile and/or application:
    • First and last name
    • Date of birth
    • NC WISE ID (Your NCWISE ID is your public high school student identifier number. Providing the NC WISE ID is voluntary and, if provided, will give you the opportunity to request your high school transcript electronically.)
    • Gender
    • Current high school
    • Email address
  • Be currently enrolled at a participating public high school in North Carolina (one that has converted from the SIMS system to the NC WISE system to manage student data). If you are not sure about your school, check with your school counselor or office staff.

Note: We cannot accept faxes in lieu of official documents.
