College Transfer

Start Here

Wilson Community College offers two college transfer programs designed to enable students to complete approximately two years of a four-year baccalaureate degree. This set of foundational general education courses transfers to the public four-year colleges and universities in North Carolina (and many independent colleges) and includes 45-semester hours of credit in general education and 15 additional semester hours of credit in other required hours.

The Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) determines the courses that are guaranteed to transfer from Wilson Community College to any of the state’s 16 public universities (and 27 of our 36 private schools) so long as a student completes his or her degree, has a cumulative GPA of 2.0, earns a grade of “C” or higher in every course, and is in good standing with his or her community college.  Transfer into one of these schools as a junior!  (Note: Completion of an A.A. or A.S. degree guarantees admission to a NC four-year public college or university, but not necessarily to the institution of their choice or to specific 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 (fine arts, business, journalism, education, law, etc.) or the social sciences (geography, political science, psychology, history, etc.).  There are usually fewer mathematics and science requirements for this degree compared to the 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 science, technology, engineering, mathematics and related fields. These areas include professional programs that require strong mathematics and science backgrounds.
