A Community of International Scholars

NC State is a national center for research, teaching, and extension. Our graduate education program has stood for quality for over a century.

North Carolina State University recognizes the importance of common global concerns and acknowledges the interdependence of nations and peoples throughout the world. We support a wide array of cooperative academic, research, and public service programs that allow our faculty, staff, and students to address international political, social, and economic problems. We also sponsor a variety of study abroad opportunities and international activities.

Currently, there are graduate students from over 85 different countries pursuing degrees at NC State. These international scholars play an important part in our academic community. They bring a new perspective to their area of study, open new doors for research, and help spread NC State's reputation for excellence around the world.

International Student Services

Because most international graduate students are in the U.S. for the first time and are often away from their family and friends, we work hard to make sure they feel at home once they enroll. We make the transition easier by offering services to help with immigration issues, application requirements, and beginning the process of becoming a graduate student at NC State.
