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 2.7 on a 4.0 scale in order to transfer with a junior status. Courses may also transfer through bilateral agreements between institutions.

As with all CCC&TI programs, students get the benefit of smaller class size, one-on-one time with instructors, free tutoring, and other services to help students reach their goals. In addition, CCC&TI offers students affordable tuition, scholarships and financial aid, and saving money on a variety of other expenses.
