The Uniform Articulation Agreement in Teacher Preparation between the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) and the Signatory Institutions of North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities (NCICU) is intended to provide smooth transfer for community college students who wish to continue their education in teacher preparation at an NCICU Signatory Institution.
This articulation agreement describes a progression degree plan that includes required teacher education degree plans and pre-major courses that are acceptable to all state funded teacher education program options. Students who follow the progression degree plan will have 60 hours applied to NCICU Signatory Institutions.
This agreement does not guarantee student acceptance into any bachelor program at NCICU Signatory institutions. Teacher Preparation students must meet applicable admissions criteria and policies designated by, and earn admission into, the NCICU Signatory institution of their choice. These criteria and admissions requirements may include (but are not limited to) minimum GPA and Praxis scores and their associated timelines, as published by each university’s Bachelor Degree in Teacher Education-related programs.
