Comprehensive Articulation Agreement

As an Alamance Community College student, you have options for continuing your academic career at a four-year college or university. The state of North Carolina has an agreement called the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) between all of NC’s community colleges and the 16 UNC system institutions.  The North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) 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 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.*
  • The CAA assures admission to one of the 16 UNC institutions (Transfer Assures Admissions Policy) . This does not guarantee admission to a specific college/university of the student’s choice, nor does it guarantee admission to a particular major.*

The Associate in Arts (A10100) (AA) degree is designed for students who want to pursue a four-year degree in one of the liberal arts disciplines or training at a professional school that requires a strong liberal arts background.

The Associate in Science (A10400) (AS) degree is designed for students who want to pursue a four-year degree in areas of study such as computer science, engineering, mathematics, the sciences or professional programs that require strong mathematics and science backgrounds.
