University Center

The University Center at Gaston College was established in 1990 through the efforts of Appalachian State University, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and Gaston College. Located on the Gaston College campus, the University Center coordinates a cooperative program with various area colleges and universities to bring four-year and graduate level classes to the Gaston College campus to make classes more accessible to the citizens of Gaston and Lincoln counties.
