New Student and Family Programs

The Office of New Student and Family Programs exists to provide education, leadership, and professional development in the areas of college student orientation, transition, and retention and parent/family programs.


Congratulations on your acceptance, new Eagle! We are excited that you have selected North Carolina Central University to begin your academic endeavors! Together, let’s get ready to take flight and SOAR high.



SOAR, designed to help you make a smooth transition to life at NCCU, is for first-time students who have recently graduated from high school and transfer students from a community college or other four-year institutions.
