Offering 75 bachelor’s, 65 master’s, and 24 doctoral programs to nearly 30,000 students, UNC Charlotte is attracting the best and brightest. In fact, we just enrolled the largest graduate class in the University’s history with 5,545 students, including 1,073 pursuing doctorates.

Most impressive, this year’s undergraduate first-year class is one of our most diverse and strongest academically, with an average GPA of 4.0. 

“These outcomes are a testament to the quality of our undergraduate and graduate programs, our talented faculty and staff, and the departments that worked tirelessly to recruit this year’s class,” said Chancellor Philip L. Dubois.
