The Office of Transfer Services (OTS) is a centralized resource for students transferring to North Carolina Central University who need information on admission requirements, course equivalencies, campus services, academic associations, networking opportunities, and integration into student life.  OTS represents and advocates for current and prospective transfer students by coordinating with community college counselors, advisors, and academic staff.  These relationships enable a streamlining of NCCU admissions requirements and course content to accommodate our community college partners.


  • Be in good standing at your current college. You cannot be on probation, suspended or expelled.
  • You must have a cumulative average of at least a "C" in the institution from which you are transferring, and you must be eligible to return to that institution.

The transfer applicant has attended another college or university, and has earned more than twenty-four (24) semester hours. Also, the transfer applicant has evidence of participating in scholastic, community and civic organizations including leadership participation.

Please note the following:

  • If the transfer applicant has attended another college or university, but has earned less than twenty-four (24) semester hours of specific acceptable credit, the transfer applicant must meet all freshman requirements (i.e., both Minimum Admission Requirements and Minimum Course Requirements). 
  • NCCU does not accept transfer credit from challenge examinations or for course work where grades of Pass/Fail (P/F) have been given.  The maximum number of transferable credits is (61) semester hours from a two-year college.
