To allow adequate time for processing, application deadlines are earlier for international students than for domestic applicants. The deadlines are as follows:
A completed application and supporting documents must be submitted by the deadline. Incomplete applications or applications without all of the supporting documents will not be considered.
The following are procedures for new international students:
The following are procedures for international transfer students:
All new student applicants, first-year and transfer, must submit official transcripts from each high school, college or university attended. Students who have attended a high school, college or university outside the U.S. must submit an official course-by-course evaluation of all courses via one of the following services accredited by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services:
We recommend using IEE, Educational Perspectives, or ECE for the evaluation. (Please note: Please be aware WES does not offer a course-by-course evaluation for high school records and does not include high school information with a college credit evaluation. For these reasons, WES evaluations do not meet our evaluation requirements. There is a good chance we will request a new evaluation if you submit a WES evaluation to our office.)
International students attending another university and/or college within the United States who wish to transfer to NCCU must submit an F-1 Student Visa Transfer Clearance Form. The form must be signed by your current international student advisor.
If you are presently in F-1 status at another U.S. institution and plan to transfer to NCCU and stay in the U.S., you will need to process your transfer through the Office of International Affairs. If you do not check in to complete the transfer process, you will be considered out of status.
If you are in F-1 status and plan to leave the U.S. and re-enter from abroad before you begin your program at NCCU, please contact the Office of International Affairs at (919) 530-7912.
For additional information regarding U.S. student visas visit the U.S. Department of State website.
The North Carolina Central University Student Medical Insurance Plan is required of all international students. NCCU requires international students to enroll in the university health insurance plan through Student Health Services. Contact Student Health Services at (919) 530-6317 for more information.
