Student & Graduate Reviews

3.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2010

NCCU is a small teaching institution that has a small research base.
2.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2009

The program is challenging not just in the means of the academia but in means of the staff and professors. The school is unorganized. I graduated in 2009 and still don't have a diploma with my name spelled correctly.
4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

NCCU school of law is a blessing . I love this law school. The faculty is extremely helpful. The school is diverse and everyone is extremely helpful. I appreciate the law school for having an evening program. The evening program allows working adults to achieve their academic goals to become advocates for justice.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2011

I attended the evening program at NCCU School of Law. The professors were, for the most part, extremely helpful, and there was a pretty decent variety of options for elective courses - especially if I was willing to attend in the late afternoon. There are excellent clinic options for pro bono real world experience, which is strongly encouraged. It was also extremely affordable and it has enriched my life immeasurably to attend law school at a HBCU. I'd highly recommend it for everyone.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2020

NCCU online programs are keyed towards the adult learner. Professors are easy to reach via email and phone. Course work is straight forward and able to be managed. I did not attend full-time so that I could still work full-time to support my family. The course were geared to my style of learning.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

North Carolina Central University has allowed me great opportunities thus far. Coming from a predominantly white institution from undergraduate, I have never felt so empowered as an African American Female until I went to NCCU. Although I wish I would have attended and HBCU in undergraduate versus graduate in order to get the full "HBCU experience" I don't regret my choice to attend to pursue my graduate degree.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Library Technology
Graduation Year: 2006

My department professors were outstanding in providing information and direction with my courses throughout my program. The overall program will prepare you to work as a professional librarian ; The program is the only HBCU that is an ALA Accredited Programs as it relates to professional standards and guidelines. The department of library science also offer exceptional support after graduation; In addition, departments throughout the University offer support in the areas of resources (study),financial aid (grants) and Professional ( Networking).

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2010

I enjoyed learning about the tools to utilize how to understand and help children and adolescents during their development. I am taking this course as one of the last few necessary for completing my degree in psychology. I work three jobs, all of which relate to the field. In my primary job I serve as a youth care worker in a residential treatment facility for adolescent females with mental health, trauma, and behavioral issues. It is my responsibility to keep the residents safe while implementing therapeutic programming, as well as provide transportation, cook, and provide support in caring of the horses on campus from our equine therapy program. I also work as a substitute teacher and one-to-one aide at the school associated with the RTC as a side job, where I get to work with the same group of young women. My other job is with an organization where I serve as a waiver service provider on a per diem basis. I do a lot of the same work with this job as I do with my full time job, however with an even younger population. This course will assist me in gaining further insight that I may apply when gaining a better understanding of the development and background of the young minds I work with each day and how those experiences affect the present. I look forward to working with you all this semester!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

My college is a historical black college. I never thought I would enjoy myself there but it was diverse very lively and the teachers were great and was always willing to help you in everyday to pass your classes. The professors must loved their job they were great.. I was able to finish a year early due to good guidance.

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2017

The MSLIS program at NCCU is well-respected, one of the few ALA-accredited programs in North Carolina, and I have felt that the quality of instruction and education I have received there is very good. The few areas I did not rate were ones about which I know nothing, as I am strictly an online student. I appreciate the fact that NCCU provides a quality online degree program such as this one, because the majority of MSLIS students are working full-time jobs as well as taking courses. I would highly recommend the MSLIS program through NCCU.
