Transfer Credits

Community College General Education Course Equivalency

NCCU has evaluated the courses offered by North Carolina community colleges and has identified the courses that can be transferred to NCCU for credit upon a student's acceptance. Contact our office for updates to the Course Equivalency Worksheet.

Transfer of Credits

NCCU accepts all non-remedial credits earned in a degree program at any accredited four year institution.  As a constituent institution of The University of North Carolina System, NCCU also accepts college transfer work completed at any community college in the state under the terms stipulated in the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) between the UNC System and the North Carolina Community College System. NCCU will accept all college transfer courses completed at two year institutions with grade of “C” or better, up to a maximum of 64 semester hours. Students completing college transfer degrees at accredited institutions will be awarded at least 60 semester hours of credit upon entering NCCU and will be classified as juniors. Credit for courses completed in non-college transfer degree programs such as technical degree programs will be evaluated on a course by course basis. A maximum of 64 semester hours can transfer from technical degree programs. No credit is awarded for coursework completed in non-degree programs such as diploma or certificate programs; however, a student can challenge courses through standardized tests such as the College Level Equivalency (CLEP) Exam or departmental exams.

Please be advised that your official transcripts will not be evaluated until you have been admitted to the university.

Articulation and Community College Benefit Partnership

Articulation agreements of associate in applied sciences (AAS) degree programs are called Bilateral Agreements. Under bilateral agreements, NCCU departments have reviewed the community college technical degree program curriculum and have determined which courses would transfer into that major. The review is on a course-by-course basis. In all cases, a grade of C or better is required for transfer consideration.  NCCU will determine whether the course will count as general education, major, or elective credit.

NCCU believes that cooperative programs benefit the community, employers, and students in their regions.  It allows a smooth transition for students transferring between institutions and maximizes allowable transfer credit. 

NCCU is currently working to revitalize and obtain Articulation and Community College Benefit Partnership’s with NC community colleges.  For updates contact our office at 919-530-5593.
