NCCU Ranked in Top 10 Among HBCUs

North Carolina Central University (NCCU) is among the nation’s top 10 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) based on the 2018 rankings from College Consensus. The publication also establishes the university as the top-ranked HBCU in North Carolina.

College Consensus, a new college-ratings website that aggregates publisher rankings and student reviews, gave high marks to NCCU for the quality of its academic offerings and the campus’s robust student life, among other factors.

Academic programs highlighted included the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, School of Education, School of Business, and College of Arts and Sciences. NCCU’s innovative programs in visual and performing arts, sciences, business, humanities and education programs were also mentioned as key areas of interest.

College Consensus data combines student reviews with rankings from publications such as U.S. News & World Report, Forbes and the Wall Street Journal to create a comprehensive meta-ranking. With student reviews drawn from websites including niche.com, myplan.com and unigo.com, the organization determines a publisher rating and a student-review rating.

According to the organization’s website, the information is aimed at helping prospective students evaluate educational options.
