As a transfer student, we know you have questions. Questions like “How long will it take for me to complete my degree?” “Will I have to take more classes?” “Will I fit in with the campus community?” “Can I live on campus?” “Can I study abroad?” These are all important questions, but perhaps the most pressing matter on your mind is, “How will my credits transfer?”
Well, we have good news. At Meredith, we want to make your transfer process easy. Whether you are transferring from a four-year college or university, a community college, or a two-year college, we will complete a transfer credit evaluation to ensure you receive the maximum credit hours.
It’s also important to know that Meredith College has articulation agreements with the North Carolina Community College System. This blog post defines the agreements and how you’ll reap the benefits.
NC Articulation Agreements are statewide agreements that govern the transfer of credits between statewide community colleges and Meredith College. These agreements make it easier for you to transfer from a community college and complete your bachelor’s degree at a four-year college.
If you’ve completed an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree at an NC-CC, you will enter Meredith College as a junior. In addition to the guaranteed transfer of all eligible credit hours, you may qualify for need-based financial aid when you submit the FAFSA.
Completing an Associate of Fine Arts enables you to pursue entry to Meredith under the AFA Articulation Agreement with NC-CCs. AFA transfer students must also meet the performance-based requirements determined by the Meredith department’s performance standards.
If you want to become a teacher, this articulation agreement allows you to seamlessly transfer the credits from your associate degree of art or associate degree of science to Meredith’s teacher education program.
Community college students who are studying psychology or sociology and want to pursue a four-year degree will benefit from Meredith’s progression degree plan that guides your community college coursework, including general education and prerequisite courses that will transfer to Meredith.
If you are transferring from an NC-CC, you can view a list of transferrable community college courses and Meredith course equivalencies. It’s important to note that these equivalencies are samples. Official articulation of credit occurs during the application process.
