Office of Transfer Services (OTS) is a centralized resource for students transferring to North Carolina Central University to obtain information regarding admission requirements, course equivalences, campus services, academic associations, networking opportunities, and overall advising regarding integration into student life.  OTS acts as a representative and advocate for current and prospective transfer students by aligning with both North Carolina Central University and community college counselors, advisors, and academic staff.  These relationships develop an established cohesiveness between NCCU admissions requirements and course content from NCCU community college partners.    OTS recruits, answers questions, and conducts on-site admissions in conjunction with Undergraduate Admissions.  In alliance with NCCU’s 2020 Strategic Plan, OTS remains at the forefront of student engagement in order to measure transfer student scholastic performance and matriculation.  OTS facilitates activities that are enhancing student learning and provides accessibility to resources that will aid in their growth.

Bilateral articulation agreements are instituted and dual degree focuses are determined to ensure that prospective students engage in a seamless entry process.  Articulation agreements are established to ensure that the appropriate course of study for pre-majors and those who receive the Associate’s Degree may be aligned and/or equivalent to NCCU’s freshman and sophomore course of study.

Transfer of Credits

NCCU accepts all non-remedial credits earned in a degree program at any accredited four year institution.  As a constituent institution of The University of North Carolina System, NCCU also accepts college transfer work completed at any community college in the state under the terms stipulated in the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) between the UNC System and the North Carolina Community College System. NCCU will accept all college transfer courses completed at two year institutions with grade of “C” or better, up to a maximum of 64 semester hours. Students completing college transfer degrees at accredited institutions will be awarded 60 semester hours of credit upon entering NCCU and will be classified as juniors. Credit for courses completed in non-college transfer degree programs such as technical degree programs will be evaluated on a course by course basis. A maximum of 64 semester hours can transfer from technical degree programs. No credit is awarded for coursework completed in non-degree programs such as diploma or certificate programs; however, a student can challenge courses through standardized tests such as the College Level Equivalency (CLEP) Exam or departmental exams.

NCCU has established scholarship opportunities for qualified transfer student completing the Associate of Arts (A.A.), Associate of Science (A.S.), or Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree programs from a North Carolina Community College.
