College Transfer Under A.A.S. Articulation Agreements

RichmondCC has articulation agreements with several colleges and universities.  Articulation agreements are arrangements between RichmondCC and other colleges and universities to offer credit for coursework completed at RichmondCC.  An articulation agreement specifies the terms of the partnership and what is necessary for a student to transfer with ease.

Keep in mind...

  • If you do not see your desired major or college, you should visit your advisor to find out more information about transferring.
  • It is strongly recommended that you complete the degree before you transfer.  If you have not completed your degree or other terms of the articulation agreements you may lose credits for some courses that you have completed.  Research has proven that transfer students who complete an associate's degree are more successful at obtaining a bachelor's degree.  Remeber, once you graduate from RichmondCC, you have already earned a college degree which could mean better employment opportunities while earning your bachelor's degree.  You can list the associate's degree on you resume right away! 
  • In some cases an articulation agreement may specify automatic admissions upon completion of an associate's degree at RichmondCC.  However, some colleges may have additional admissions requirements.  When an articulation agreement is in effect, a university is more apt to recognize the student's previous work and offer an easy transition to the university.

The table below highlights the articulation agreements and guides that are specific to the transferability of RCC A.A.S. programs:

College Transfers Under the NC Comprehensive Articulation Agreement

The North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement is a statewide agreement governing the transfer of credits between NC community colleges and NC public universities and has as its objective the smooth transfer of students.

The CAA provides certain assurances to the transferring student; for example:

  • Assures admission to one of the 16 UNC institutions;
  • Enables NC community college graduates of two-year Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degree programs who are admitted to constituent institutions of the university of NC to transfer with junior status.

To be eligible for the transfer of credits under the CAA, the student must graduate from the community college with an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree and have an overall Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale and a grade of "C" or better in all CAA courses.  Students who do not complete the degree are eligible to transfer credits on a course-by-course basis.

The Transfer Course List contains a list of courses accepted for transfer between the NC Community College System and the University of North Carolina.

If a transfer student perceives that the terms of the CAA have not been honored, he or she may follow the CAA Grievance Procedure.
