The College Transfer pathway offers a head start on general education courses for students who plan to complete degrees at a 2-year or 4-year university or college. The pathway lets students choose one of two programs of study: the Associate in Science or Associate in Arts.

The Associate in Science (pdf, 215kb) program of study is designed for students who want to pursue an Associate in Science and/or Bachelor of Science degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM) or other technical major. The program provides up to 34 semester hours of credit.  The Associate in Arts (pdf, 215kb) program of study is designed for students who want to pursue an Associate in Arts and/or Bachelor of Arts degree in a non-STEM major. This program provides up to 32 semester hours of credit. 

A distinct advantage of both programs of study is that each provides a structured body of courses drawn from the Universal General Education Transfer Component ("UGETC," pronounced "you-get-see") courses listed in the February 2014 Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) between the University of North Carolina and the North Carolina Community College System. These courses satisfy most of the general education requirements needed for the associates and bachelors degrees. As part of this agreement, all UGETC courses in which a student earns a grade of "C" or better will transfer for equivalent credit, as defined in the CAA, to any UNC system university.
