North Carolina Community College Students

We've provided Baccalaureate Degree Plans for students at North Carolina Community Colleges to help identify NC Community College courses that provide pathways leading to associate degree completion, admission into a major and baccalaureate completion.

North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement

The North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) Baccalaureate Degree Plans were created to assist students at the 58 NC Community Colleges to prepare to transfer to NC State.

The community college courses identified were selected for inclusion because they both fulfill requirements for an associate degree and transfer to NC State for credit towards a baccalaureate degree.

  • When you apply to NC State, you will apply directly to a specific major.
  • Select the academic college your major is in to view the degree plan to assist you in planning out your course schedule.
  • Not sure which college your major of interest is in? View our list of majors here.

Following a Baccalaureate Degree Plan does not guarantee admission to NC State or guarantee an AA/AS degree or BA/BS degree will be conferred. The courses included in the pathways can change at any time.

Baccalaureate Degree Plans (BDP’s)

Due to the evolving nature of university curricula, links to some Baccalaureate Degree Plans may be temporarily inactive or unavailable while their content is being reviewed and updated. Please direct questions regarding requirements for a specific major to the programs’ academic department.

  • NC State is currently working to provide these Baccalaureate Degree Plans in a format that is more compatible with text-to-speech software.

Contact the College of Design for more information about planning your transfer pathway.

The NC State College of Engineering designed these Baccalaureate Degree Plans to allow students to complete their BS degree in two years or slightly longer, depending on the major. Due to NC State course offerings and prerequisites, some BDP’s include part-time semester course loads. In order to maintain full-time status, students in these majors may wish to consider a minor or double major.

Please consult your advisor and the NC State College of Engineering to discuss your academic plan.
