Courses are approved for transfer through the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA). The CAA enables North Carolina community college graduates of two-year Associate in Arts and Associate in Science programs who are admitted to constituent institutions of The University of North Carolina to transfer with junior status.
Community college graduates must obtain a “C” or better in each course and an overall GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale in order to transfer with a junior status. Courses may also transfer through bilateral agreements between institutions.
