Associate in Arts and Associate in Science
Randolph Community College offers college transfer through the Associate in Arts (AA) and Associate in Science (AS) degree programs.
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.
The transcripts of students transferring prior to completing the UGETC will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis by the receiving institution. Students planning to transfer to a college or university that does not endorse the CAA or ICAA should consult the personnel at that institution for information regarding transferability of courses.
