University Transfer

Receive credit and recognition for the work you’ve completed at your community college while moving on to a four-year institution through our collaborative administrative efforts.

Your Path to Academic Success Starts with the NC Community College System

Within the NC Community College System, your academic journey begins with the Associate in Arts (AA) or Associate in Science (AS) degree programs. These programs make transferring to four-year institutions more accessible, more efficient and more affordable than any other path.
