How to Transfer College Credits in North Carolina
North Carolina offers students the option to use a comprehensive articulation agreement between the North Carolina universities and community colleges. In this agreement, there is a Universal General Education Transfer Component as well as statewide guaranteed transfer of associate degrees. North Carolina also offers a helpful reverse transfer program.
The Comprehensive Articulation Agreement offers the Universal General Education Transfer Component. This component is a set of 30 semester hours of courses that will meet some of the University of North Carolina lower division general education requirements and will transfer as well.
Students with a North Carolina community college associate of arts or associate of science with a grade of C or better and an overall 2.0 GPA or higher will have guaranteed transfer of their degree. This grants students with junior status upon admission to a North Carolina university and at least 60 semester hours of academic credit. Additionally, the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement assures admission to one of the University of North Carolina’s 16 institutions.
For students who have not yet earned an associate’s degree, the North Carolina Reverse Transfer Program is an option. This program allows students to combine community college and university credit together to earn an associate’s degree while pursing a bachelor’s degree at a North Carolina university.
