Articulation Agreements with Community Colleges

North Carolina Wesleyan University has articulation agreements with many community colleges and private two-year colleges in North Carolina. Students who receive their associate degree at any of these colleges will be eligible to transfer to Wesleyan with junior standing. The remaining degree requirements for these students depend on previous courses completed and the student’s major selection at Wesleyan. Students who are interested in transferring to Wesleyan under this program should contact the North Carolina Wesleyan University Admissions Office or the Adult Degree Program Office.

North Carolina Wesleyan University has different transfer agreements with the following Community Colleges for all of their AA, AS and many AAS degrees. These articulation agreements follow the Universal Transfer Course system from the state office.

Some agreements provide a transfer pathway for students at a North Carolina community college that includes 60-75 hours of transfer credit towards the total requirement of 120 hours. See below for the list of colleges and specific agreements with each one.

What is an Articulation Agreement?

Articulation agreements are arrangements between NCWU and other colleges and universities to offer college credit for coursework completed. An articulation agreement specifies the terms of the partnership and what is necessary for a student to transfer.

NCWU has a Community College 75-hour transfer pathway for all community college students at the below participating community colleges. Adheres to the CAA agreement for Associate of Arts and Associate of Science graduates.

This agreement provides an enhanced transfer credit policy for Associate of Applied Science graduates. AAS students can transfer in an additional 15 hours, on top of their AAS curriculum credits of 60 hours. The additional 15 hours can only be in general education requirements. Benefit – applies for all AAS credits directly towards 120 bachelor’s degree required hours but further reduces remaining credits needed at NCWU by allowing the additional 15 hours.
