Transfer to a 4-year College
UNC System Minimum Admission Requirements
The Associate in Arts degree shall be granted for planned programs of study consisting of a minimum of 64 and a maximum of 65 semester hours of college transfer courses.
Upon successful completion of a college transfer degree option, students are prepared to continue their education as juniors in their field of study.
The Arts and Sciences Department college transfer degree options are in full compliance with the 1997 Comprehensive Articulation Agreement between the North Carolina Community College System and the University of North Carolina System. The Comprehensive Articulation Agreement established college transfer courses, degrees, and policies that are accepted by all members of the North Carolina Community College System and all members of the University of North Carolina System. Students not completing one of the associate degree options will be able to transfer credit on a course by course basis and must comply with the requirements of the receiving institution. In all cases, it is the responsibility of students to be aware of special requirements of a specific institution or program.
Articulation agreements with private colleges and universities facilitate the transfer of college transfer degrees and individual courses. Many private colleges and universities aggressively recruit students completing a college transfer degree option.
Graduates completing the Associate in Arts or the Associate in Science degree will have demonstrated the ability to achieve academic and other learning goals enhancing employment opportunities.
Courses are approved for transfer through the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement. Courses may also transfer through bilateral agreements between institutions. Courses offered through bilateral agreements may not transfer to all receiving institutions.
