North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is an academic community focused on students—providing them with interdisciplinary learning opportunities, teaching them with faculty renowned for excellence, connecting them to cutting edge discoveries in research, and encouraging them to serve their communities. We were founded in 1891 as a land-grant institution, and we’ve built a strong civil rights legacy along the way. The Greensboro Four—who staged the first ever sit-in at a Woolworth lunch counter in 1960—were NC A&T students. We strive for excellence and innovation in our curriculum, promote partnerships with public and private entities, and foster a learning environment that focuses less on transmitting information and more on the ability to organize, assess, apply, and create knowledge. Our campus sits on 200 beautiful acres in Greensboro, NC, and includes a 600-acre university farm. Our enrollment is more than 10,000 students and our workforce includes more than 2,000 employees. We are home to visionary centers and institutes concentrating on human-machine studies, entrepreneurship and e-business, advanced journalism, public health, transportation, and more. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching classifies NC A&T as a doctoral/research university.

THE UNIVERSITY IS A PRIVATE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION WHICH AWARDS UNDERGRADUATE, MASTER, AND DOCTORAL DEGREES IN ARTS AND SCIENCES, BUSINESS, ENGINEERING, PHARMACY AND LAW.
