James Sprunt Community College offers a two-year college transfer program for students planning to pursue a four-year baccalaureate degree at a senior college or university. The program includes required freshman and sophomore level courses in English composition, humanities/fine arts, social/behavioral sciences, natural sciences/ mathematics. In addition, students may take college transfer electives selected to meet their individual needs and interests as well as the requirements of the specific major areas of study at senior institutions.

The Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degrees shall be 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, the institution shall include opportunities for the achievement of competence in reading, writing, oral communication, fundamental mathematical skills, and basic computer use.

The Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) and the Independent Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (ICAA) 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 and to Signatory Institutions of North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities to transfer with junior status.

Community college graduates must obtain a grade of “C” or better in each course and an overall GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale in order to transfer with a junior status. Courses may also transfer through bilateral agreements between institutions.
