  • AAS in Biotechnology to BS in Pharmaceutical Sciences
  • AAS in Information Technology to BS in Computer Science and Business
  • AAS in Accounting to BBA in Accounting
  • AAS in Business (Marketing Concentration) to BBA in Business Administration with Concentration in Marketing
  • AAS in Business Administration to BBA in Business Administration with a Concentration in Management
  • AAS in Culinary Arts to BS in Hospitality and Tourism Administration
  • AAS Early Childhood Education to BS in Early Childhood Education (B-K)
  • AAS in Early Childhood Education to BS in Child Development and Family Relations

“The new partnership with Alamance Community College, called Eagle ACCess, is in keeping with NCCU’s goal of expanding our partnerships with community colleges and our footprint throughout the state of North Carolina, for those individuals seeking to obtain a high-quality education and succeed in jobs that are in high demand,” said Johnson O. Akinleye, Ph.D., interim chancellor of NCCU.

“This collaboration with N.C. Central University reflects a commitment by ACC to partnerships with universities around us and a commitment to serving student populations inside Alamance County,” said Dr. Algie Gatewood, ACC President. “By closing the skills gap in technical fields and opening doors to high-paying careers, it’s such a win-win for our students and industry. Collaborating on educational pathways like this ensures workforce development and the economic vitality of Alamance County. It is a pleasure to work with N.C. Central Chancellor Dr. Johnson Akinleye on this and future collaborations.”
