Articulation Agreements

North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA)

Students who complete a transfer degree with a C or better in all courses are provided the following guarantees by the state of North Carolina:

  1. Acceptance into one of the UNC schools
  2. Acceptance with Junior status
  3. Fulfillment of all of the undergraduate General Educations requirements
  4. Fulfillment of pre-requisite courses for the baccalaureate major

* Students will still have to fulfill the school’s graduation requirements, such as Foreign Language and Health. Students applying for competitive programs are not guaranteed acceptance into the program.

North Carolina Independent Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (ICAA).

Many NC private schools have signed the ICAA, which allows students the same guarantees as the UNC Public School System.
