The college transfer program at Wilson Community College is a set of courses that has been designed to transfer to most four-year colleges and universities in North Carolina. The set of courses includes a 44-semester hour general education core and 20 additional semester hours of transfer credit.
Students who earn an associate's degree according to the guidelines of the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) will be treated as juniors at the receiving UNC constituent institution or participating independent college or university.
At Wilson Community College, the Associate in Arts (A.A.) and Associate in Science (A.S.) degree programs are included in the CAA as college transfer programs.
The Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree is designed for students who want to pursue a four-year degree in one of the liberal arts disciplines such as the humanities (arts, English, history) or the social sciences (geography, political science, psychology). The mathematics and science requirements for the A.A. degree are usually fewer than for an A.S. degree.
The Associate in Science (A.S.) degree is designed for students who want to pursue a four-year degree in areas of study such as computer science, engineering, mathematics, the sciences or professional programs that require strong mathematics and science backgrounds.
