State Articulation Agreements
The North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) is a statewide agreement governing the transfer of credits between N.C. community colleges and N.C. public universities. Transfer of credits between North Carolina Community Colleges and select private colleges in the state is governed by The North Carolina Independent Articulation Agreement (ICAA).
Co-Admission Agreements – A Step Beyond the Comprehensive Articulation Agreements
Gaston College has partnered with several four-year colleges and universities to create transfer admission guarantees (TAG) agreements which smooth the transfer pathway for students and strengthen the transfer relationship between institutions. Most TAG programs provides students early access to university advisors, faculty, financial aid counselors, and student life staff during their studies at the community college leading to direct entry admission to the university upon completion of their transfer degree.
