Admissions

Cape Fear Community College operates under an open door admission policy. This means the College is here to assist anyone who can benefit from a CFCC education. To enroll, students must either be a high school graduate (or equivalent) or at least 18 years of age. While CFCC advises all students seek a high school diploma or equivalent, admission to certain certificate programs may be granted without prior completion of a high school diploma or equivalency. In addition, admission to the college does not mean that students will be admitted immediately to a program with specified admissions requirements.

General Admissions Process

First-Year Applicants:

Admission to CFCC requires the following:

  • Admissions Application – the application can be accessed online at www.cfcc.edu/admissions
  • Residency Application – the residency application is available via the Residency Determination Service at www.ncresidency.org.  Residency determination establishes if a student pays in-state or out-of-state tuition.  This is required for all students.
  • Official secondary transcript or equivalency (accepted equivalencies include: GED®/HiSET/TASC)

Students are required to submit official high school transcripts with a graduation date or equivalent transcripts with a completion date. Home school students must submit a copy of the home school’s approved registration from the state in which they are registered (if applicable) and a home school transcript with graduation date.  High school and home school seniors may be provisionally admitted upon receipt of an official transcript indicating successful completion of the 1st semester of the senior year.  Students admitted provisionally are required to submit final/official transcripts before the start of the entering term and are not eligible for financial aid until the final/official transcript is received. Foreign transcripts must be evaluated and translated (if applicable), by a current member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (naces.org) or a current member of the Association of International Credential Evaluators (aice-eval.org). 

Transfer Applicants:

If you have previously attended a college or university, please follow the general admissions process.  While it’s not required to submit official college transcripts for general admission, transcripts are required to earn transfer credit, waive placement testing, and receive veterans’ benefits. Only courses with a grade of “C-“or higher from an accredited college or university are transferable.  Questions regarding your transcript evaluation should be directed to the Registrar’s Office.  As part of the enrollment process, you will be required to provide a valid Residency Certification Number from the State of North Carolina or complete a Residency Application with the Residency Determination Service at ncresidency.org. The Residency Determination Service Office regulates if you will pay in-state or out-of-state tuition.

Students interested in health science programs are required to submit transcripts in advance of individual program deadlines. Visit cfcc.edu/counseling for more information.  

Additional Information Regarding Transfer Credit:

Credits are transferable from regionally accredited two and four year institutions within the United States. Courses are transferred that compare in content, quality and credit hours to those offered within the North Carolina Community College System.

Transcripts of course work completed at a college or university located outside of the United States must be accompanied by a certified English translation course evaluation and course descriptions. Transcripts must be evaluated and translated by a CFCC approved agency. Qualifying evaluations include those approved by a NACES (www.naces.org) or AICE (www.aice-eval.org) member evaluator before CFCC will review transcripts for admission or transfer credit purposes. An official copy of the evaluation must be sent directly to CFCC or presented in a sealed/official envelope.

Credit for Military Experience–Veteran applicants should submit an official military transcript to the College in order to request credit for previous military experience and training. The College grants credit where applicable for military service schools in accordance with the recommendations of the American Council on Education’s Guide To The Evaluation Of Educational Experiences In The Armed Services. Credit recommended must be consistent with the requirements and objectives of an academic program in order to be granted. Students should be aware that the transferability of these credits is totally at the discretion of the receiving institution and that Cape Fear Community College makes no guarantee of such transfer.

Some courses that depend heavily on technology, speed and accuracy, physical skills, and/or language skills will be subject to review after five years unless the student has been continuously enrolled. Courses subject to review may include, but not limited to, keyboarding, computer, foreign languages, sciences, and trades courses.  CFCC reserves the right to not award credit based on the discretion of the appropriate academic area.

Credits transferred from other institutions will be noted on the student’s CFCC transcript. Grades achieved at other institutions will not be used in the grade point average computation at CFCC.

Credit gained through advanced placement testing will require official transcripts from the testing agency.

Experiential learning, proficiency testing from other institutions, and work based learning experience that was evaluated by another institution will not be transferred as course work to CFCC.

Students who wish to receive transfer credit should submit official copies of all transcripts two weeks prior to registration so that evaluation of transfer credit can be completed. Faxed transcripts are not acceptable.

To receive a degree, diploma or certificate from CFCC, transfer students must complete at least 25 percent of program requirements from CFCC.

Re-Admission of Curriculum Students:

Students (including CFCC graduates) returning to CFCC who have not been enrolled for one (1) or more academic years must submit a new admissions application.  If you have had a period of non-enrollment, you may be required to complete the Residency Determination Service Application. This application determines if you will pay in-state or out-of-state tuition and is mandated by the State of North Carolina via the Residency Determination Service Office. For further information, please see the General Admissions Process.

Selective Admission/Health Science Programs:

In addition to meeting general college admission requirements, applicants applying to selective admission programs, must also meet program specific requirements. This includes:

Students may visit the Counseling Office at either the Wilmington or North campus to review program requirements, information, and deadlines.  For additional information and to review selective admission programs, please visit the appropriate academic program page or counseling section of the CFCC website.  Selective admissions programs at the College include:

Admission as a Special Credit Student (Non-Degree Seeking):

Students who do not wish to enter degree or diploma programs may enter CFCC as “special credit” students. Students admitted as special credit students may carry only a part-time course load. Special credit students must meet course prerequisites. Admission as a special credit student does not constitute admission to any curriculum program. Special credit students may attempt no more than 18 credit hours without meeting admissions requirements. Students who exceed this number will not be permitted to register until admissions requirements are met. Students who enter a curriculum program from special credit status must meet all admissions requirements prior to time of registration.  Special Credit students are not eligible to receive financial aid or Veteran’s benefits.

Admission as a Special Credit-Lifelong Learner Student (Non-Degree Seeking):

Students who have no desire or intention to work toward a degree, diploma, or certificate and wish to take classes for personal development, enrichment, or simply for the joy of learning may enroll as a Lifelong Learner. To be admitted as a Lifelong Learner, the student need only submit a completed college application for admission. Students admitted as Lifelong Learners may carry only a part-time course load. Lifelong Learners must meet and verify course prerequisites. Admission as a Lifelong Learner does not constitute admission to any curriculum program. A Lifelong Learner who wishes to be reclassified as a regular student must complete admission requirements as outlined in the General Admissions Process in this catalog. Lifelong Learners are not eligible to receive financial aid or Veteran’s benefits.

Admission of Visiting Students:

Visiting students are those who are admitted and enrolled in another college or university and wish to enroll at CFCC to supplement their coursework.  Applicants should follow the general admissions process and select “special credit” as the program of study/major.

Provisional Admission

Provisional admission is granted prior to the last day to register. Students whose official high school transcripts have not been received by the Admissions Office at the time of registration may be admitted provisionally. Financial Aid will not be available to a student who is provisionally accepted until the final official transcript is received in the Admissions Office. All admissions requirements must be met within thirty (30) calendar days from the first day of the academic session. Those students who do not meet admissions requirements within thirty (30) calendar days may be dropped from courses. Students will not be allowed to register for upcoming semesters until all admission requirements are met.

Career and College Promise (Dual Enrollment/Early College)

The Career and College Promise Program allows qualifying high school students the opportunity to enroll in college classes in order to earn both high school and college credit upon successful completion of CFCC courses. This program offers the following pathways:

  • Career and Technical Education Pathway
  • College Transfer Pathway
  • Cooperative Innovative High School Pathway (or Early College High School)

The Career Technical Education Pathway allows high school students the opportunity to enroll in a CFCC CTE Pathway that aligns with their high school career cluster programs. To be accepted into this program, students must meet the following criteria*:

  • Be a high school junior or senior;
  • Have an unweighted GPA of 2.8 on high school courses or have the approval of the high school principal or designee;

*Some CTE pathways include courses that require testing prerequisites for enrollment. 

The College Transfer Pathway allows high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to complete core general education classes required during the first two years of a four-year degree. To be accepted to this program, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Be a high school junior or senior;
  • Have an unweighted high school GPA of 2.8 or higher;
  • OR demonstrate college readiness in English, Reading, and Math on an assessment or placement test such as the PSAT, SAT, ACT, or the CFCC Placement Test.
  • Meet all program prerequisites.

The Cooperative Innovative Pathway or Early College High School allows students the opportunity to earn a high school diploma and up to two years of college credit within five years. CFCC partners with New Hanover County Schools and Pender County Schools to host two early college high schools. Pender Early College High School (PECHS) and Wilmington Early College High School (WECHS) are high schools located on the campuses of CFCC. Both early colleges enroll rising ninth-graders each year. Students must have the desire to attend a smaller school with high expectations for academics and behavior. Admission to the program is granted by each respective school system.

For more information on college courses available to qualifying high school students, visit our website at http://www.cfcc.edu/ccp.

Developmental Studies

To help ensure student success, the college offers developmental courses to students who need help in the basic skills:  mathematics, reading, and writing.  These courses are required for those students who have been identified by Career and Testing as needing enhancement in these skills.

Developmental courses count toward registered credits as it applies to financial aid, veterans benefits, and enrollment status. Developmental courses do not count attempted or earned hours, nor do they count in a student’s academic grade-point average. All developmental courses are given grades of PA, PB, PC, or R (Repeat).

CFCC will recognize developmental courses completed with an equivalent grade of “C” or above at other North Carolina accredited institutions.  Counselors will mail students a transfer credit slip following an evaluation of the coursework.  The transfer evaluation will be used for class placement by the advisor.

Below is a selected list of transferable courses for students who have not met prerequisites based on English placement test scores or other measures.  Some courses have additional prerequisites and corequisites (listed within parentheses), and students must comply with them.  Reminder:  Students may also take math courses if they (students) comply with the prerequisites and the corequisites.
