College Transfer Program

The Associate in Arts Degree (AA), Associate in Fine Arts Degree (AFA) and Associate in Science Degree (AS) programs at South Piedmont Community College parallel the freshman and sophomore years at a four-year college or university. With an AA, AFA or AS degree, SPCC graduates who are admitted to any of the 16 NC public universities or other universities with articulation agreements may transfer with junior status. In addition to the pre-major or pathway area of study, students take general education courses in humanities; fine arts; math; science; and social and behavioral science. This well-rounded education is the foundation for transferring to a university to pursue a bachelor’s degree.


To start your path toward a four-year degree, contact Scott Collier or Jeff Jost at 704.290.5772.
