Associate in Science in Teacher Preparation
The Career and College Promise (CCP) College Transfer Pathway leading to the Associate in Science in Teacher Preparation is designed for high school students who wish to begin study toward the Associate in Science in Teacher Preparation degree and a baccalaureate degree in teaching in a STEM or technical major.
To be eligible for enrollment in the College Transfer Pathway, a high school student must meet the following criteria:
- Be a high school junior or senior;
- Have an unweighted GPA of 2.8 or higher on high school courses or demonstrate college readiness on an assessment or placement test in English, reading, and mathematics for enrollment in a College Transfer Pathway; and
- Meet all course prerequisite requirements.
To maintain eligibility for continued enrollment, a student must:
- Continue to make progress toward high school graduation, and
- Maintain a 2.0 GPA in college coursework after completing two courses.
A 10 40T Associate in Science in Teacher Preparation
The Associate in Science Degree is designed to meet the two-year general college requirements of four-year colleges and universities while providing a concentration in education.
Upon Completion of this Concentration, graduates will be able to: Transfer with junior-level status and pursue a teaching degree in the K-12 field of education. This curriculum is suited for students who want to pursue a four-year teaching degree in STEM-related or technical areas such as mathematics and science.
The Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) and the Independent Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (ICAA) enables North Carolina community college graduates of two-year Associate in Science programs who are admitted to constituent institutions of The University of North Carolina and to Signatory Institutions of North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities to transfer with junior status.
Partnership: College of The Albemarle (COA) has articulation agreements with certain universities for students transferring into specific programs of study. Students can complete the first two years of that specific baccalaureate degree at COA. Students should check with their advisor for more information.
General Education (32 – 33 SHC): The general education requirement includes study in courses selected from the Universal General Education Transfer Component (UGETC) of the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement. (All UGETC courses in which the student earns a grade of “C” or better will transfer for equivalency credit up to the distribution limits detailed in the CAA.)
