NCCU will grant full academic credit for approximately 60 hours of courses earned through Durham Tech’s Associate of Applied Science in Business Administration program, as well as provide support services and access to NCCU resources. 

With over 200 companies in the Research Triangle Park, a continuously growing job market has increased demand for market-ready employees.

NCCU and Durham Tech currently have another existing partnership leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality and Tourism Administration. 

“This collaboration is specifically designed to assist our graduates in having a smooth transition with no credit loss to pursue a bachelor’s degree”, said LaTonya Steele, Ph.D., director of Durham Tech’s Business Administration Program. “We are excited to recognize this agreement in promotion of both schools’ collective student success goals.”

NCCU and Durham Tech collaborate on residential, dual-enrollment and transfer admissions. Through several articulation agreements, combined programs of study include nursing, accounting, criminal justice, public administration and biology with a concentration in pharmaceutical science.
