History

The North Carolina General Assembly founded NC State on March 7, 1887 as a land-grant college under the name "North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts." As a land-grant college, NC State would provide a liberal and practical education while focusing on military tactics, agriculture and the mechanical arts without excluding classical studies. Since its founding, the university has maintained these objectives while building on them.[8] The North Carolina General Assembly founded North Carolina State University (NC State) in 1887 as a land-grant college under the name North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. ...

After opening in 1889, NC State saw its enrollment fluctuate and its mandate expand. Due to the Great Depression, the North Carolina government administratively combined the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the Women’s College at Greensboro, and NC State. This conglomeration became the University of North Carolina in 1971. After World War II, the university has constantly grown and changed.[citation needed] In the summer of 1956, North Carolina State University enrolled its first African-American undergraduates, Edward Carson and Manuel Crockett.[8] Image File history File links NCSU-Freshmen_1889. ...

In 1966, single year enrollment reached 10,000.[8] The 1970s saw enrollment surpass 19,000 and the addition of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. NC State celebrated its centennial in 1987 and reorganized its internal structure renaming all its schools to colleges (e.g. School of Engineering to the College of Engineering). Also in this year, it gained 700 acres (2.8 km²) of land that would later become the Centennial Campus. During the next decade and a half and continuing today, NC State has focused on developing its new Centennial Campus. Over $620 million has been invested in facilities and infrastructure at the new campus with 62 acres (0.3 km²) of space being constructed. There are 61 private and government agency partners located here as well.[9] Image File history File links Download high-resolution version (1391x420, 257 KB) Agricultural and Mechanical College, Raleigh, N.C., today North Carolina State University. ...

The Board of Trustees administers NC State's eleven academic colleges.

The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences is the only college to offer associate's degrees and the College of Veterinary Medicine does not grant undergraduate degrees.

There are a total of 66 departments administered by all eleven NC State colleges.

Admission

Considered a more selective university, NC State accepts fewer than 61% of those who apply for undergraduate admissions. Out of the 3,717 students in the 2005 freshmen class, 36% were ranked in the top 10% of their high school class and 45% scored greater than 1200 on the SAT. Twenty-one percent were in both categories. The average weighted GPA for incoming freshman is 4.11. State law limits the admission of students from outside North Carolina, so there is strong competition among non-residents for admissions.[27][28][29][30] For other uses, see SAT (disambiguation). ... In the United States, grading is done with several different systems. ...


NC State requires undergraduate admission candidates to choose a preferred college of study. After determining that an applicant meets the overall university requirements, the individual college must also agree to accept the student. Due to this process, some colleges have significantly higher admission requirements than others. For example, the College of Engineering has higher admission standards than the College of Natural Resources. In addition, students might have a difficult time transferring between colleges. Transferring to the College of Design from another college could be difficult due to lack of design experience.[31]


The Graduate School reviews all postgraduate education applications. For fall 2005, 7,206 prospective students applied to the Graduate School; 2836 (39.4%) were admitted. Of these, 1,755 (61.9%) enrolled.
