In just a few weeks you’ll begin a new chapter in your life as an NCCU alumnus.   You’ll join over 30,000 graduates who have experienced “Eagle Pride. Amplified!”  Whether your plans are to further your education, join the workforce or take on some other venture, know that the education you received at North Carolina Central University has set you on the course for success.

The Office of Alumni Relations and the NCCU Alumni Association are excited about your new status and we invite you to stay involved with and informed about NCCU.   Here are just a few ways you can stay connected.

Get Your New Grad Packet

All graduates will pick up graduation packets and permit-to-march cards at B.N. Duke Auditorium on Thursday, May 8, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.  In recognition of  your new status, the North Carolina Central Alumni Association and the Office of Alumni Relations will present you with a gift bag.  It will include information about the Alumni Association, how you can stay connected to NCCU and a special graduation gift.  You will also receive complimentary membership, valued at $50, for one year.  The Alumni Association promotes the spirit of fellowship among NCCU alumni and friends while advocating the mission of the university.

Join an Alumni Chapter

Wherever you go after graduation, there’s probably an NCCU Alumni Association chapter to help you stay connected to Eagles in your area.  There are more than 30 chapters across the country.  Visit  to find one in your area.

Volunteer for NCCU
