How Credits Transfer

Transferring college-level credits

  • Our Transfer Credit Advisor is an online database of courses that have transferred from other colleges and universities across the country.
  • Please keep in mind that this database is comprised of courses that have transferred previously.
  • If you are transferring from a college or university outside of North Carolina, this may not be a comprehensive list.

 

Transferring from a university or community college without an Associate Degree​

  • Our Transfer Guides will help you navigate the transfer process.
  • The guides will assist you in the process of choosing courses if you plan to transfer without earning an Associate degree.
  • They are specific to individual programs or dependent on the institution you are transferring from.
  • Be sure to choose the guide that is right for your specific situation.

 

Transferring with an Associate Degree (AA, AS, AFA) from a North Carolina Community College

  • These Pathways to Degree Guides will provide you with a path leading from your Associate Degree completion to admission to your major and completion of a Baccalaureate degree.

 

Transferring CLEP Credits

  • Credits granted for CLEP exams are shown as transfer hours on your transcript and are included in the hours completed toward a degree.
  • An official CLEP test score is required to award CLEP credit.
  • Keep in mind that CLEP credit will not count toward the 24 hour requirement for admission.
