College Transfer

Students wishing to complete a four‐year bachelor’s degree from any of the 16 schools in the University of North Carolina system or from private schools in America have two transfer options.

All courses in the degree programs  are designed to give students a solid, well‐rounded foundation in the arts and the sciences before going on to four‐year institutions where they will take the remainder of their course work to complete their bachelor’s degree.

Students must earn a grade of C or better on all course work and have an overall GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale. Although the general education core and the degree programs meet the state’s general education requirements, students must meet the transfer institution’s physical education and foreign language requirements, which may vary from institution to institution.

At the end of each student's course of study, he or she will be required to complete a Capstone Project as part of the HUM 220 course. This project‐based course is designed to help students make connections between different disciplines and will give them the opportunity to demonstrate the progress they have made on their personal academic journeys.

Associate in General Education Degree Program

The Associate in General Education (AGE) curriculum is designed for individuals wishing to broaden their education, with emphasis on personal interest, growth, and development. The two‐year General Education program provides students opportunities to study English, literature, fine arts, philosophy, social science, science, and mathematics at the college level. All courses in the program are college‐level courses. Many of the courses are equivalent to college transfer courses; however, the program is not principally designed for college transfer. List of transfer courses are available in the Arts and General Education office and on the HCC Website. The number of required courses in this degree program is kept to a minimum in order to allow a student and his or her academic advisor to design a personal program of study that meets the student’s specific educational goals. Courses may be taken in any sequence as long as prerequisites are met. The AGE program must be comprised of courses from the college’s approved programs of study.

AGE Option 2 - Agriculture Education - Horticulture Emphasis:

This option, requiring 67 semester hours, leads to an AGE degree at Haywood Community College and is designed to position students in Western North Carolina  to apply to the 4-year Agricultural and Extension Education degree program at NCSU or NCA&T. This program begins the initial coursework necessary for a student to ultimately teach agricultural education in the public school systems in North Carolina. Students enrolled in the AGE program should let their adviser know of their educational goals as soon as possible. Faculty at HCC will work with the student to maximize their potential for success.

Students must also individually determine when to apply to NCSU or NCA&T. Admission to either program is not guaranteed. It is permitted to be a dual enrolled student in HCC’s AGE program and one of the four-year programs. There are on-line courses available from both Baccalaureate level programs that would allow a student to complete additional courses towards their 4-year degree program requirements prior to relocating to the university. Students accepted to either college’s 4-year program can expect an additional 1-2 years in residence on campus after completing all available NCSU or NCA&T on-line offerings successfully.
