The Associate in Engineering (AE) degree shall be granted for a planned program of study consisting of a minimum of 60 semester hours of credit (SHC) of courses. Within the degree, the institution shall include opportunities for the achievement of competence in reading, writing, oral communications, fundamental mathematical skills, and basic computer use. The degree plan includes required general education and prerequisite courses that are acceptable to all state funded Bachelor of Engineering programs. Students who follow the degree progression plan will meet the entrance requirements at all of the North Carolina public Bachelor of Science Engineering programs. Associate in Engineering graduates may then apply to any of these programs without taking additional and sometimes duplicative courses. Admission to Engineering programs is highly competitive and admission is not guaranteed.To be eligible for transfer of credits under the AE to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Articulation Agreement, community college graduates must obtain a grade of “C” or better in each course and an overall GPA of at least 2.5 on a 4.0 scale.
The North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) is a statewide agreement governing the transfer of credits between N.C. community colleges and N.C. public universities. Its objective is the smooth transfer of students.
A Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) between North Carolina Community College System and the 16 institutions of the University of North Carolina contains the following components: (See advisors in the Advising Center for additional information).
*Independent Comprehensive Articulation Agreements (ICAA) allow for transfer to a limited group of private colleges.
Students who transfer to private colleges that are not included in the I.C.A.A. or to public universities outside of North Carolina will have their transcripts evaluated in accordance with the policies of the university to which they are transferring. The final decision on transferability rests with the transfer institution.
