About UNCP

With more than 5,000, but fewer than 10,000 students, University of North Carolina in Pembroke is just large enough for students to feel like they’re at a real university but still small enough to be manageable.

This is reflected in the academic offerings. With more than 40 bachelor’s degrees and more than 15 master’s degrees offered in the Arts and Sciences, Education, Business and Human Services, the choices are substantial but not overwhelming.

Some of UNC’s Pembroke’s undergraduate and graduate majors include:

  • Art
  • Elementary Education
  • Environmental Science
  • Foreign Languages
  • Music Education
  • Public Administration
  • Social Work
  • Theatre Arts
  • Zoology

Student life also offers just enough choices to meet the varied interests of its students. There are more than 60 special interest, religious and service organizations, student dance, music and theatre groups, a student-run newspaper and radio station, and a recreation center.

Admissions are on a rolling basis, which means that students may apply at anytime. However, there is also an undergradate admission deadline of July 31st for those who wish to enter in the fall.

In addition to an application and an application fee, students will need to submit transcripts, SAT or ACT scores and a questionnaire filled out by an instructor or counselor at their previous school.

Scholarships include those awarded for strong academic performance and a scholarship for Native Americans. Students may also apply for such federal aid sources as grants, work-study and loans by filling out a FAFSA. There is also a grant available for those who plan to teach as well as tuition benefits for veterans. Tuition payment plans are offered as well.

Overall Rating

UNC Pembroke is a very warm and welcoming place. My dad was in the the military so I've always been around those like me and very different from me. I am comfortable with diversity and I felt right at home when I stepped on campus the first time. I liked that it was easy to find something fun to do on campus and that the classes really were small, especially when compared to other schools within the UNC system and beyond.


Overall Rating

The University of North Carolina at Pembroke is well diverse school with many academic programs to offer. UNCP has an outstanding athletic program with an awesome football team, great sports facilities. The campus is very safe, I have not heard of any incidence on campus ever. UNCP is ever expanding its campus and programs. The staff at the Livermore Library are very helpful. I enjoyed being on campus during my summers with Upward Bound. The campus is right in the heart of downtown within walking distance of McDonalds, Pizza Hut, KFC and Burger King.
