N.C. Higher Education Directory 2020

 In May 2020

Share this story:

This list was compiled from the National Center for Education Statistics. All figures for private universities are for undergraduates/first-time students. Not all applicants who are accepted attend that school. Total cost covers tuition, fees, and room and board for the 2019-20 school year, unless otherwise noted. The undergraduate enrollment total is full-time undergraduates only for fall 2018. 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 2017-18 school year. Retention rates are for students who began studies in fall 2017 and returned fall 2018. The overall graduation rate tracks the progress of full-time students who began studies in fall 2012 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 2018-19.
