Associate in Arts
The Associate in Arts (College Transfer) program is designed for students who plan to complete a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree at a four-year college or university. Students who complete the program and receive the degree with an overall 2.0 GPA and a grade of “C” or better in each course will be able to transfer to any university or college, which endorses the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) or the Independent Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (ICAA), with junior status. Included in the CAA or ICAA endorsing universities and colleges are the senior institutions within the University of North Carolina System and many other private institutions within the state. Within the 60 – 61 hours of coursework required for the degree is a 30-hour universal general education transfer component (UGETC) with courses in English Composition, Humanities/Fine Arts, Social/Behavioral Sciences, and Natural Sciences/Mathematics. Because institutions differ in admission requirements, students intending to transfer should contact the institution(s) of their choice to learn about specific admissions requirements.
