Colleges with the Lowest Acceptance Rate in North Carolina for 2019

These are the most selective colleges in North Carolina. We've ranked the schools which reject over fifty percent of applicants. Leading the list is Duke University which sent acceptance letters to only 10% of the 33,077 students who applied and rejected 90%. Interestingly, not all schools on our "most selective" lists are overly academically challenging. Schools with less rigorous standardized test and high school GPA requirements may receive a large numbers of qualified applicants and the school does not have space to admit them all.
