Dear Customer, thank you for choosing Just Answer. I would like to assist you with your legal question today.
North Carolina is a state that is particularly harsh on non-competition clauses (http://www.law.virginia.edu/pells/employment+law+4.nsf/Studentarticles/BF0024B2F110C64C8525674F000FA056/$File/Nc.pdf) the fact that your students (as opposed to higher level employees or partners) are being asked to sign these clauses makes them highly unlikely to be enforceable.
