There is more to NCCU than sloping hills and verdant green. You need to experience what it is like to soar, both in and out of the classroom. Walk a mile in the shoes of our students, while taking a peek at the many opportunities that NCCU has to offer! The ideal way to experience the NCCU campus is by participating in a campus tour, guided by our enthusiastic Eagle Flight Team Members.
Note: Tours are only offered when classes are in session; tours are not offered on holidays or blackout dates. If a date is not available, you will not be able to select it when signing up.
*Tour groups of 50 or more are required to submit a tour request at least 30 days in advance.
Campus tours will last approximately 45 minutes to an hour and fifteen minutes. Your tour will begin with an information session with an admission counselor, which serves as a brief overview and introduction to the university and an in-depth look at the admission process and requirements. A walking tour of campus will begin immediately after this information session and cover all academic and student life aspects of campus. Please be prepared to do a lot of walking! Our campus is very hilly. It is encouraged that you wear comfortable shoes and dress according to the weather.
Since all of our campus tours follow a predetermined route, you are encouraged to make appointments before or after your tour with any other departments of interest before arriving on campus (e.g. a particular academic department of interest, Scholarships & Financial Aid, Athletics, the Honors Scholars Program, etc.). The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is not responsible for making arrangements to visit and/or meet with other departments. These meetings are to be scheduled at your discretion.
