RCC offers the Associate in Arts and Associate in Science majors that are comparable to the freshman and sophomore years at a University. Enrolling in either of these programs at RCC greatly reduces the cost of a bachelor’s degree by allowing you to attend college and live at home. When you compare the cost of tuition, fees, room and board, meal plans, and mileage, you will find attending your first two years at RCC makes a bachelor’s degree affordable.
A Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) between the University of North Carolina System and the North Carolina Community College System states if you graduate from RCC in good standing with a college transfer degree, you are assured of admission as a junior into one of the 17-campus University of North Carolina System. The CAA does not guarantee admission; however, it does guarantee junior status for AA, AS and AFA graduates, preserves course credit and streamlines the process for community college transfer students.
RCC also has articulation agreements with many private colleges and universities in the state. The Associate in Science / NCSU College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Transfer program prepares graduates with a 3.0 or higher grade point average for admission as juniors into nine N.C. State programs: Agriculture and Extension Education, Agriculture Science, Agronomic Business, Agronomic Science, Animal Science, Horticulture Science, Plant Biology, Poultry Science, and Soil Science.
Additionally, RCC has partnered with Wingate University to create a pathway to the Wingate University School of Pharmacy (WU-SOP). This agreement spells out a course of study that will give students all the prerequisites for application to the School of Pharmacy. Completion of the prerequisite courses will also earn a student an Associate in Science degree from RCC.
Articulation agreements for Associate in Applied Science degrees such as Business Administration, Early Childhood Education, and Human Services allow graduates to transfer to colleges and universities. Ask a counselor or your advisor about these opportunities.
Ask a counselor or your advisor about these opportunities as soon as you think you may be interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree.
