About NCAT

Despite its name, North Carolina Agriculture and Technical State University isn’t just for students looking for careers in engineering and environment.

A&T’s Office of Student Financial Aid offers extensive assistance to eligible students. Scholarships are awarded based on merit and need.

Additionally, each department has scholarship funds to help outstanding students pay for tuition.

The campus is beautiful. There is great Aggie Pride there! The students and staff are very helpful.When I went for a campus Open House I loved the dining area has a large choice of food and is very nutritional, I also liked the College of Engineering which I will be attending in the fall of 2013.


Overall Rating

I visited A&T as one of my prospective college choices while making my decisions. I choose A&T as my college choose, first because it provided the academic courses that I seek such "Animal Science", secondly it was not to far from home even though I will be staying on campus and last, I liked the atmosphere of the student, faculty and cultural environment. The students that assisted with the tour also helped as they provided a true picture of their own experiences and life at the college. And, most important I did my research about the "Animal Science" program and they had great reviews and strong student support outside of the classroom whereby assistance such a mentoring students being placed in potential careers of interest and in my case continue on to a successful Veterinarian degree program. I also inquired about post graduate programs leading to universities that accepts their BS- Animal Science" degrees which came with great reviews about grad placements.
