Aggies at the Goal Line


Aggies at the Goal Line (AGL) is a degree completion program designed to help former “Aggies” who did not complete their bachelor’s degrees to return to the University to earn a bachelor’s degree. The program is fully online and specially tailored to accommodate the non-traditional student. Approximately 200 former students have re-enrolled through AGL and completed their degrees. Many more are on their way. Don't let time and resources get in your way. You can complete your A&T degree and we can help. 

"Nontraditional adult learners represent almost 40%

of all post-secondary students in the United States."



To qualify for Aggies at the Goal Line, you must:

• Have stopped out of school for at least two years

• Have a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average 

• Have earned 90 or more credits

The Aggies at the Goal Line progam is designed for first-degree seeking students only who have never earned a bachelor's degree. 


Student Testimonials


Tonya Dixon


Tonya Dixon left North Carolina A&T in 1991 after her grandmother—her support—passed away and various family issues arose. Now that she’s back in school through the Aggies at the Goal Line adult learner program, her daughter, a student at UNC-Chapel Hill, provides her the support she needs to study hard and stay positive. After she finishes her bachelor’s degree, she hopes to earn her master’s as well—and then apply for a better paying job.


Isaac Smith


Soon after he retired, Vietnam veteran Isaac Smith decided to finish the degree he’d started at North Carolina A&T back in 1962. With a full load of classes in the Aggies at the Goal Line online adult learner program, Smith has earned mostly A’s. The North Carolina A&T tradition runs strong in his family, and he’s looking forward to December 2017, when he plans to graduate—and become a part of that tradition as well.
