Top Universities in North Carolina


What are the most popular Universities in North Carolina? uniRank tries to answer this question by publishing the 2019 North Carolina University Ranking of 54 recognized North Carolina higher-education institutions meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed and/or accredited by the appropriate US higher education-related organization
  • offering at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees)
  • delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, face-to-face, non-distance education format
Our aim is to provide a non-academic League Table of the top North Carolina Universities based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
