Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study


The NC Career and College Promise (CCP) College Transfer Pathway leading to the Associate in Science is designed for high school juniors and seniors who wish to begin study toward the Associate in Science degree and a baccalaureate degree in a STEM or technical 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 Science must complete the entire pathway before taking additional courses in the Associate in Science (AS) degree.
