CCC Now Offers Guaranteed Acceptance to UNCW


Carteret Community College has partnered with the University of North Carolina Wilmington to offer qualified students guaranteed acceptance to the four-year university.

By partnering with UNCW, CCC students will receive special services to ensure a smooth university transfer process through UNCW’s Pathways to Excellence program.

To quality, a student must have completed an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, or Associate of Engineering degree with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 in transferable college-level coursework.


“This is an amazing opportunity for our students,” CCC President Dr. John Hauser said.

“UNCW is ranked in the Top 100 Public National Universities in the latest U.S. News & World Report Rankings. Our students can work hard at Carteret Community College to get their Associates degrees and know they will be accepted into UNCW.”

UNCW will provide a “transfer success” advisor for Carteret CC students. That advisor, along with CCC’s team, will meet with students to create transfer plans.

Transferring students will attend UNCW with the option to study online, on campus or both. After completing their courses, students will graduate with Bachelors degrees from UNCW.
