The North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement

The University of North Carolina System and the North Carolina Community College System have designed the North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA). The CAA is a statewide agreement governing the transfer of credits between NC community colleges and NC public universities to facilitate the transfer of courses to most four-year colleges and universities in North Carolina.

To be eligible for transfer credit under the CAA, the transfer student applicant must have successfully completed a course designated as transferable or graduate with an Associate in Arts (AA) or Associate in Science (AS). N.C. A&T accepts credits under the guidelines of the North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement.

If a student from a North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) college believes the terms of the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) have not been honored by N.C. A&T or any of the other University of North Carolina (UNC) institutions to which the student was admitted, the student may invoke the CAA Transfer Credit Appeal Procedure.

An Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree is not covered under the CAA and courses will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis. Also, all Associate in Arts (AA) and Associate in Science (AS) degrees earned from out-of-state institutions are not covered under the CAA and courses will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis.
