Business North Carolina

This list was compiled from the National Center for Education Statistics. All figures for private and public colleges/universities are for undergraduates/first-time, full-time students. Not all applicants who are accepted attend that school. Total cost covers tuition, fees, and room and board for the 2018-19 school year, unless otherwise noted. The enrollment total is full-time undergraduates only for fall 2017. 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 2016-17 school year. Retention rates are for students who began studies in fall 2016 and returned fall 2017. The overall graduation rate tracks the progress of full-time students who began studies in fall 2011 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 2017-18.

*part of the N.C. Promise Tuition Plan program for 2019-20 academic year, which offers reduced tuition rates; **no on-campus housing. Total is tuition, fees, books and supplies only.
