A.A. Degree in Associate in Arts (A10100)

The Associate in Arts (AA) degree is part of the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) between the North Carolina Community College System and the University of North Carolina System. In addition to the sixteen UNC schools, many private colleges and universities honor the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement.

While the courses in the AA degree are drawn from the CAA approved course list, transfer requirements for senior colleges and universities vary. Each student is responsible for planning a program of study to meet the requirements of the senior college or university to which the student plans to transfer. It is very important that a student planning to transfer to a senior college or university obtains a copy of that school's catalog and speak with an advisor in his/her planned major.
