Continuing your education at Pitt Community College has never been easier.  We are so pleased you have decided to explore transferring to PCC, and whether it is from another community college or 4-year institution, we hope to provide a seamless transition to completing your academic goals.  Congratulations on your achievements up to this point and we are looking forward to seeing you continue your success as a Bulldog!  To continue your journey with PCC, carefully follow these steps:


Connecting your education to the career of your dreams is an important first step in making the decision to attend college. Knowing the profession you plan to pursue will let you know which major to select when you apply for admission. Click the Path link to access our career and personality assessments to learn more.


Since you have completed your high school requirement and attended another 2-year or 4-year institution prior to arriving at PCC, you will be applying as a transfer student. Before completing your admissions application, you must complete an online form to verify residency status through the Residency Determination Service (RDS). You will be asked to enter your RDS number when you begin our application with the College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC). If you participated in dual-enrollment courses in your high school’s Career and College Promise Program, you will apply as a Freshman student.


Official transcripts are necessary to complete your admission to the College. An official transcript from any previously attended colleges or universities containing prerequisite credits needed for PCC coursework is mandatory for enrollment; Transfer students are therefore not encouraged to provide a high school transcript for admission. Please have your official transcript sent to Pitt Community College, Office of the Registrar, PO Drawer 7007, Greenville, NC 27835 or emailed to transcripts@email.pittcc.edu. For additional questions, call 252-493-7232.

Financial Aid

Attending Pitt Community College is an affordable way to continue your education, but if you need help paying for your tuition, books, and school materials, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the best way to receive assistance. For a helpful tutorial on how to complete your FAFSA, please click here. If you have already completed the FAFSA, please ensure you enter PCC’s school code 004062 to direct your aid to Pitt Community College. Once you have been admitted, you are also welcome to complete applications for scholarships by clicking here.


Completion of a placement assessment is not required for transferring curriculum students with transferable English and/or math credits reflected on an official transcript. Learners without these credits who graduated high school greater than 10 years ago may be subject to completing the RISE Assessment. Check with your assigned Student Success Advisor for details. (Due to current in-person restrictions in place on campus, all placement assessments have been suspended. All students, no matter their high school completion year, will be placed using their transcripts.)
