Watch our video about this program.

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.
