It is strongly recommended that students consult the college/university to which they plan to transfer to ensure that courses taken at Central Carolina meet the senior institution’s requirements for the desired four-year degree. Informed academic advisors are available to assist students.

The length of time required to complete a University Transfer Program is dependent upon the number of courses in which the student enrolls each semester.
