The University of North Carolina Charlotte - Comments and Student Experiences|
If you have a disability I would strongly recommend you choose another university. UNCC is unhelpful & extremely unaccomodating compared to other colleges. They do not allow course substitutions so plan on at least 3 years math. Out of state tuition has increased incredibly since I started school here.
The University Area of Charlotte & the campus are very unsafe. Anyone who claims otherwise is ignoring the police messages we receive & the news. Specifically, last year CMPD vowed to try to create a program to help make the area safer. It didn't work out & the area has one of the highest crime rates in the city. Financial aid is a mess. UNCC provides next to nothing for university grants & scholarships.
The campus is very attractive, but not a lively one. Most buildings are either very nice or a dump. The library is big & mostly open 24/7 which is helpful. Parking on campus during the day can take hours to find a spot. Very few if any profs are compassionate or understanding. I've found a lot of arrogance & a "you struggling in my course is not my problem" attitude. Not a whole lot of school spirit here. Hard to get involved & would be nice if more exciting events took place set up by the school. Almost every major requires you earn a minor as well to graduate. Transient study permits are rarely approved as are transfer very many credits. It's seems their goal is to keep student enrolled her for as long as possible for financial profit. This years statistics showed that only 32% of undergraduates earn their degree in SIX YEARS here. Meaning most all students will be here way more than 6 years to get a bachelors degree. That's a very accurate reflection of all I started above.
