Based on initial transfer to UNCG, students who earn the A.A. or A.S. degree from a North Carolina community college and earned grades of C (2.0) or better will be eligible for 60 semester hours of credit, junior standing, and will have met General Education Core (GEC) requirements. Students who complete the General Education transfer core (44 semester hours), but do not complete the A.A. or A.S. degree also will have met General Education Core (GEC) requirements. Students who earn D grades in the A.A. or A.S. program may or may not be admitted as juniors, but will not have GEC waived.
Transfer credit to be awarded is determined by the quality as well as the quantity of the student’s previous college work. Course work completed with a grade of C-, D+, D, or D- will not transfer. Transfer courses are evaluated on a course-by-course basis.
The sum total of transfer credit hours from two-year college(s), extension, or correspondence courses that may be applied toward an undergraduate degree may not exceed 64 semester hours. No combination of 2Plus and transfer/extension credit may exceed 64 semester hours on the student’s transfer equivalency worksheet.
The university’s Repeated Course policy (see the Credit Regulations and Limits topic in the Academic Regualations & Policies section of the Undergraduate Bulletin) applies to transfer credit. If a course or its equivalent is taken more than once for credit and is not repeatable for credit, credit will be applied toward degree requirements only once. In the case of duplicate transfer credit, only the first instance in which credit can be awarded will remain on the UNCG academic record.
Current UNCG policy stipulates that courses completed in technical, vocational, or professional programs at community colleges or courses from technical colleges or proprietary institutions cannot be accepted in transfer, unless they are part of a 2Plus Program. These programs give students with articulated Associate in Applied Science degrees access to a limited number of degrees at UNCG.
Although UNCG extension credit is treated as transfer credit at the time of admission, it will be thereafter considered “Residence” credit for degree certification purposes.
