NC State was founded with a purpose: to create economic, societal, and intellectual prosperity for the people of North Carolina and the country. Today it is a preeminent research enterprise that excels in science, technology, engineering, math, design, the humanities, social sciences, textiles, and veterinary medicine. Our nearly 37,000 high-performing students apply what they learn in the real world by conducting research, working in internships and coops, and performing acts of world-changing service. That experiential education ensures they leave ready to lead the workforce, confident in the knowledge that NC State consistently rates as one of the best values in higher education.

Why you should attend?

NC State is the largest university in North Carolina and an active member of the UNC System partnership for national security to support service members by working with military partners on quality of life, policy issues, and addressing science and technology gaps. We offer more than 72 degree programs through distance education, as well as courses on military installations, allowing greater flexibility to meet the demands of active-duty service members. Our Military and Veteran Services office provides transition assistance, promotes and enhances student success, and provides campus-wide leadership in the areas of recruitment, retention, and outreach for military-affiliated students.
