Starting your four-year journey at WCC can save you thousands of dollars in tuition and fees and improve your chances of admission and scholarships to your top choice colleges and universities. We offer four associate degrees designed specifically for four-year transfer: Associate of Arts (A.A.), Associate of Science (A.S.), Associate in Engineering (A.E.), and Associate in General Education – Nursing (A.G.E.).
Ensuring a smooth transfer isn’t only about completing an associate degree; it’s about establishing a clear plan from day one at WCC, and then choosing the right courses each term to position yourself for the major and the four-year school you desire to attend.

Along with the articulation agreements below, Wayne Community College has established agreements and pathways with specific four-year institutions that will benefit Wayne Community College students.
Articulation agreements document a pathway between two or more colleges or universities and their academic programs. Various audiences also call articulation agreements transfer agreements, transfer guides, and transfer pathways.
The North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) addresses the admission of community college graduates to UNC institutions and the transfer of credits between institutions within the NC Community College System and the institutions within The University of North Carolina. The CAA provides certain assurances to the transferring student for example:
- Assures admission to one of the 16 UNC institutions (Transfer Assured Admissions Policy)
- Enables NC community college graduates of two-year Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degree programs who are admitted to constituent institutions of the University of NC to transfer with junior status.
- Additional statewide agreements
Articulation agreements simplify the complexity of determining what courses to take. They eliminate the guesswork regarding transferability. Aside from the CAA, the following articulation agreements have been created to benefit the students at Wayne Community College:
