Future Students

At North Carolina State University, happiness is being a student at a campus that makes you feel anything but small. NC State is a large, comprehensive university, but current students will tell you it's the close-knit community and accessibility of faculty that makes the NC State experience a personal one.

At NC State we offer focused disciplines with the opportunity to always work across disciplines whether at home here in Raleigh or studying abroad. The curriculum is designed to channel your talent and challenge your ideas. As an NC State student, you won't just earn a degree, you'll earn an education that you can apply to real-world situations.

Outside the classroom, you'll find more than 400 student organizations ranging from politics and spirituality to club sports and service opportunities. And if you don't know exactly what you want, we encourage and support you as you create your own path.
