Interested in earning college credit while saving money this summer? Piedmont Community College (PCC) is offering 12 transferable courses during the May 29-July 25 summer session. Students home for the summer or who have recently graduated high school have the opportunity to earn credits that will transfer to 4-year public universities in North Carolina.

A three credit summer class costs under $270 at Piedmont Community College. At a nearby 4-year university, the same class would cost nearly $900. Taking two summer classes at PCC this summer will save a student close to $1,260!

How is this possible? The North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) is a statewide agreement governing the transfer of credits between NC community colleges and NC public universities. The specific classes listed below are designated in this agreement as universally transferable between community colleges and 4-year public institutions in NC. Students are encouraged to work with advisors at both PCC and the NC four-year public university of their choice to ensure a smooth transfer process.

PCC’s 2018 Transferable Summer Classes include:
• General Biology I ( BIO 111 ) – online
