Associate in Science

Overview

Piedmont Community College offers three transfer degrees, the Associate in Arts (AA), the Associate in Fine Arts (AFA) and the Associate in Science (AS). All degrees provide students with a general education core, the foundation for a four-year baccalaureate degree. Courses are offered in the areas of English, literature, fine arts, foreign language, social and behavioral sciences, natural science, mathematics and physical education.

The Associate in Science (AS) degree is designed for students who want to pursue a four-year degree in areas of study such as computer science, engineering, mathematics, the sciences or professional programs that require strong mathematics and science backgrounds. In addition to complete core general education requirements, the program allows the student to select additional general education, pre-major, and elective courses in consultation with the targeted 4-year program they are seeking to transfer to.

The North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) is a statewide agreement governing the transfer of credits between NC community colleges and NC public universities and has as its objective the smooth transfer of students. A number of private 4-year colleges and universities in North Carolina also subscribed to the CAA. The CAA provides certain assurances to the transferring student; for example:
  • Assures admission to one of the 16 UNC institutions (Transfer Assured Admissions Policy)
  • Enables NC community college graduates of two-year Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degree programs who are admitted to constituent institutions of the University of NC to transfer with junior status.
  • Students are able to meet general education requirements at the 4-year institutions by completing selected pre-approved Universal General Education Transfer Core courses (UGETC)
Courses are approved for transfer through the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement. Community college graduates who have earned 60-61 semester hours of academic credit in approved transfer courses with a grade of “C” or better in each course and an overall GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale will receive at least 60-61 semester hours of academic credit upon admission to a university. Courses may also transfer through bilateral agreements between institutions. Courses offered through bilateral agreements may not transfer to all receiving institutions.
