PCC and NC A&T Reach Agreement to Benefit Business Administration Students

Piedmont Community College (PCC) and North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NC A&T) have signed a new agreement for business administration students. This is the second agreement between the two institutions that helps students transition from PCC to NC A&T.

In the latest agreement, CCP graduate students with an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Business Administration with a GPA of 2.0 or higher are guaranteed admission to the Bachelor of Science in Management: Administration program business to NC A&T once they submit all required documents.

“The Willie A. Deese College of Business and Economics at A&T looks forward to welcoming CCP students to A&T as they pursue their business studies and work toward their career goals,” said Dr. Kevin L. James, Dean of the College of Business and Economics at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. “Our vision is to be a national leader in global business education that transforms students’ lives. This articulation agreement will streamline this process for CCP students, connect them with our industry partners, and provide them with a wealth of opportunities as future Aggie alumni.”

NC A&T will accept transfer courses taken at PCC as course-by-course equivalents. All transfer CCP students may receive up to 64 hours of academic credit for approved courses completed with a grade of “C” or better. Students are encouraged to work with their individual advisor to review courses and credits.

“Developing partnerships through articulation agreements with North Carolina institutions provides many benefits to PCC students,” said Walter C. Montgomery, Dean, Business Studies and Emerging Technologies. “Creating pathways, like this one with North Carolina A&T, increases the likelihood that students will successfully complete their bachelor’s degree. Gaining a solid educational foundation while studying in their hometown college—a place that is familiar and offers personalized guidance during the first two years of college—is important to many students. When the student is ready, the transition to North Carolina A&T is seamless, with counselors from both institutions ensuring success.

To be eligible for inclusion in this articulation agreement, PCC students must complete the AAS degree. Transferees before completing all degree requirements may also have their courses assessed on a course-by-course basis. Students in this category must also meet NC A&T transfer admission requirements.

PCC and NC A&T have a similar partnership that benefits students in the Agribusiness Technology program.
