RCC Adds Criminal Justice Articulation Agreement with UNCP

ASHEBORO (February 26, 2014)

Randolph Community College has signed a 2+2 articulation agreement with the University of North Carolina at Pembroke to provide an easier transition for Criminal Justice Technology students who wish to pursue a bachelor’s degree.
           
An information session about the new program has been scheduled for Tuesday, March 18, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Foundation Conference Center on the Asheboro Campus, with both RCC and UNCP representatives available to answer questions.
           
This agreement is applicable to students who complete the required hours for the Associate in Applied Science degree in Criminal Justice Technology from RCC and transfer to the UNCP and major in Criminal Justice. Transfers who have not completed the associate degree will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Regardless of hours transferred, students will be required to complete at least 18 hours in Criminal Justice from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.
           
To be admitted under this agreement, the student must have a 2.0 GPA, must take a minimum of 9 hours of writing intensive courses, and must complete the rest of UNCP’s General Education Requirement to complete the 120 hours for the degree. A minimum of 25% of the semester hours for this degree must be completed in residence at UNCP.
           
RCC offers associate degree, diploma, and certificate options in Criminal Justice Technology, which is designed to provide knowledge of criminal justice systems and operations. Emphasis is on criminal justice systems, criminology, juvenile justice, criminal and constitutional law, investigative principles, ethics, and community relations.
