NCCU Top Story: NCCU Earns Top 10 on 2015 HBCUs College Choice Rankings


Published: Monday, July 27, 2015

North Carolina Central University (NCCU) is ranked ninth in the country among Historically Black Colleges and Universities by College Choice, an independent online publication for college-bound students and their families.

The top-10 listing cites NCCU’s research endeavors in areas such as biomedicine, mathematics and health science, as well as its School of Library and Information Sciences, which has produced more African-American librarians than any other higher education institution.

“NCCU is honored to consistently receive top ranking among universities throughout the country,” said NCCU Chancellor Debra Saunders-White. “It is an indication of the confidence in this historic institution’s ability to prepare students as 21st century scholars and to prepare them for successful careers.”

The 2015 Ranking of Historically Black Colleges and Universities by College Choice was based on responses of college freshmen concerning factors leading to their college decision. The Higher Education Research Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles lists among those factors academic reputation, financial aid, overall cost and post-college employment rates.
