Many students attend CFCC with the intention of transferring to a four-year college or university. If this is your goal, you are encouraged to plan early and choose a program of study that matches your academic and career direction.
It is suggested that students research transfer options early, including campus visits. Connecting to Transfer Admission Representatives at respective schools of interest can help CFCC students align course selections – saving time and money! Need help? Visit CFCC Counseling Services at either the Downtown or North Campus!
The purpose of the college transfer programs is to provide students with the first two years of a baccalaureate degree. These two years include forty-four (44) semester hours of the general education core – composition, fine arts and humanities, speech communication, math and science, and social sciences – and at least twenty (20) semester hours of electives.
Twenty-five (25) college transfer programs are offered at Cape Fear Community College: two (2) general studies programs – Associate of Arts (AA) and Associate of Science (AS), twenty-one (21) premajors or special transfer tracks, and two diploma programs. The Associate of Arts and Science programs enable a student to transfer as a Junior to other North Carolina institutions. The premajors enable a student to transfer as a Junior in the respective major. The diplomas enable students transfer without a degree yet complete the general education core or the basic studies requirement and to receive minimum protection under the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA).
Students are encouraged to become familiar with the Handbook to review all program options and requirements for degree completion.
Transfer Admissions Representatives routinely visit CFCC every Fall and Spring. Check the Student Services Calendar for dates/times/location where you can meet with them and ask questions regarding transfer. Explore your options!
Remember, it is your responsibility to know the deadlines, application process, admission requirements and cost of colleges or universities you plan to transfer to. If you need assistance, please visit CFCC Counselors in Student Services.
