As stated by REG – 10.01.5 – Transfer of Undergraduate Credit Regulation, NCCU accepts all non-remedial credits earned in a degree program at any regionally accredited four-year institution. As a constituent institution of The University of North Carolina System, NCCU also accepts college transfer work completed at any of the 59 NC community colleges 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 regionally accredited two-year institutions with a grade of “C” or higher, up to a maximum of 64 semester hours. NCCU does not accept transfer credit from challenge examinations or for course work where grades of Pass/Fail (P/F) have been given. 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.
A student may challenge courses through standardized tests such as the College Level Equivalency (CLEP) Exam or departmental exams. NCCU is an approved national CLEP Testing Center, through which students may arrange to take examinations in English composition, mathematics, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences and history in order to receive credit and advanced placement in these areas. Baccalaureate students will be granted credit for each test in the battery in the award of up to six semester hours of credit in the areas covered by the tests; the total amount of credit granted for all five tests will not exceed 30 semester hours of credit or the equivalent of one academic year.
