Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA)

The CAA applies to all 58 North Carolina community colleges and all 16 constituent institutions of the University of North Carolina System.  The CAA is applicable to all N.C. community college students who have completed the 44-hour general education core or graduated with an A.A. or A.S. degree to a constituent institution of the University of North Carolina.  It assures admission if the following conditions of the CAA are met:

  • Graduation from an N.C. community college with an associate of arts or associate of science degree
  • An overall GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale
  • Grades of “C” or better in all Comprehensive Articulation Agreement courses
  • Eligibility for readmission at the last institution attended (Please have your institution complete the Statement of Confidential Information.)
  • Meet application deadlines and other admission requirements.

Bilateral Agreements

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 bases. 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.
