Associate’s Degree Programs

The Associate in Arts (AA), Associate in Engineering (AE), and Associate in Science (AS) degree programs are designed for the student who aspires to transfer to a four-year college or university. The completion of the AA, AE, or AS degree fulfills the lower division general education requirements for the freshman and sophomore years of college and allows the student to transfer with junior status to the receiving four-year institution. Students who follow a UNC Baccalaureate Degree Plan which identifies a clear pathway into a major, will continue into that major once at the UNC school.

The AA, AE, and AS follow the curriculum standards instituted by the state of North Carolina through the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA). The CAA was developed by the North Carolina Community College System and the University of North Carolina System in order to create a seamless transfer program within the North Carolina higher educational system. Courses in the programs of study are all approved transfer courses and will transfer between all the UNC state Universities and many NC private/independent colleges.

Transfer courses must receive a grade of C or better in order to be eligible for transfer acceptance. Students should be aware that many four year institutions prefer that the AA, AE, or AS degree is completed and that the students have a 2.5 GPA or better.

NOTE: Some majors may require additional courses beyond the general education and pre-major pathway courses. Competitive majors may have additional courses and requirements students must still meet. Student must meet the receiving institutions foreign language and/or health and physical education requirements.
