This list was compiled based on data from the University of North Carolina System and National Center for Education Statistics. Not all applicants who are accepted attend that school. Total cost covers tuition, fees, and room and board for the 2021-22 school year, unless otherwise noted. The undergraduate enrollment total is full-time undergraduates only for fall 2020. Grant or scholarship aid includes aid received from the federal government, state or local government, the institution and other sources known by the institution for the 2019-2020 school year. Retention rates are for full-time students who began studies in fall 2019 and returned fall 2020. The overall graduation rate tracks the progress of full-time students who began studies in fall 2014 to see if they complete a degree or other award such as a certificate within 150% of “normal time” for completing the program, typically six years. Community college statistics are for 2020-21.
