College of The Albemarle (COA) is proud to be a member institution of the North Carolina Scholar of Global Distinction Program (NCSGDP).

COA values cultural diversity and supports “an emphasis on teaching about global issues and world regions to prepare students to work in a global economy and live in an interconnected world.”

NCSGDP participants who successfully complete the program receive “Graduated with Global Distinction” on their transcripts, an honors graduation stole, and a joint certificate from COA and World View at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill recognizing this accomplishment.
