College Transfer Pathway
The College Transfer pathway offers a head start on general education courses for students who plan to complete degrees at a 2-year or 4-year university or college. The pathway lets students choose one of two programs of study: the Associate in Science or Associate in Arts.
The Associate in Science program of study is designed for students who want to pursue an Associate in Science and/or Bachelor of Science degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM) or other technical major. The program provides up to 34 semester hours of credit. The Associate in Arts program of study is designed for students who want to pursue an Associate in Arts and/or Bachelor of Arts degree in a non-STEM major. This program provides up to 32 semester hours of credit. For information on CCP eligibility criteria and the Associate in Science or Associate in Arts College Transfer pathways, please review the NC Community College System CCP Operating Procedures.
A distinct advantage of both programs of study is that each provides a structured body of courses drawn from the Universal General Education Transfer Component (UGETC). These courses satisfy most of the general education requirements needed for the associates and bachelors degrees. As part of this agreement, all UGETC courses in which a student earns a grade of "C" or better will transfer for equivalent credit, as defined in the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA), to any UNC system university.

Updated Dual Credit Allowances Chart
Use the Dual Credit Allowances Chart to see which Universal General Education Transfer Component (UGETC) courses may be used to fulfill high school graduation requirements. These courses satisfy most of the general education requirements needed for associates and bachelors degrees.
The Dual Credit Allowances Chart has been updated as of March 2021. The updates reflect changes made due to the social studies standards adoption and the policy change of GRAD-004 that resulted. There are updates on both versions of Dual Credit Allowances information. One chart is from the perspective of the UGETC courses, with the new information noted on page 6, and the other chart is from the perspective of high school graduation requirements, with the new information noted on page 9.
