It is the responsibility of the student to know and to comply with the prerequisites and the corequisites listed in this catalog. If students have previous college credits from other institutions, students are advised to check first with a counselor at the receiving institution (the institution in which they plan to attend upon leaving CFCC). A counselor at the receiving institution should advise students of the courses to take at CFCC if the students have credits from other institutions. Otherwise, students will be encouraged to 1) complete their associate degree, which consists of 64-65 semester hours, or, the general education core, which consists of 28 semester hours; 2) contact their CFCC advisor, register early, and pay their tuition on time; and 3) earn a grade of “C”or higher on the first attempt. Since this program has only 28 credit hours in the general education core, students may be required to fulfill their basic studies requirement after they transfer. While some UNC institutions accept students with a 2.0 grade-point average, other UNC institutions require at least a 2.5 grade-point average. (Reminder: While CFCC will accept a grade of “C-,” some senior institutions will not accept this grade.) Students must always comply with the admission requirements of the receiving institution.
