Purpose

The NC Career and College Promise (CCP) College Transfer Pathway leading to the Associate in Arts is designed for high school juniors and seniors who wish to begin study toward the Associate in Arts degree and a baccalaureate degree in a non-STEM major.

The courses are approved for transfer through the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA). The CAA enables North Carolina community college courses with Universal General Education Transfer Component course designation to transfer as a lower level general education course equivalency at every public four year institution in North Carolina. Students must obtain a grade of “C” or better in each course.

High school students in the CCP College Transfer Pathway Leading to an Associate in Arts must complete the entire pathway before taking additional courses in the Associate in Arts (AA) degree.

  • Be a high school junior or senior;
  • Have a weighted GPA of 3.0 on high school courses;
  • Demonstrate college readiness in English, Reading, and Math on an assessment or placement test.
