A.S. Degree in College Transfer (A10400)

The Associate in Arts (AA) degree or Associate in Science (AS) degree is granted for a planned program of study consisting of a minimum of 60 semester hours of credit (SHC) of college transfer courses. Within the degree program, Martin Community College includes opportunities for the achievement of competence in reading, writing, oral communication, fundamental mathematical skills, and basic computer use.

Courses are approved for transfer through the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA). The CAA enables North Carolina community college graduates of two-year associate in arts programs who are admitted to constituent institutions of The University of North Carolina to transfer with junior status.

To be eligible for the transfer of credits under the CAA, the student must graduate with an AA or AS 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.

For more information about registration and enrollment, please see the College Catalog. You must have advisor approval to register and enroll. The advisor will ensure you are placed in the right sequence of courses to meet your academic and program completion needs.
