If you wish to transfer academic credit for summer classes taken at N.C. A&T, obtain written approval from the dean or advisor at your home institution before registering for N.C. A&T summer classes. This approval is necessary to ensure the course will transfer back to your home institution. You must request a transcript from the N.C. A&T University Registrar to have grades sent to your home institution.
