Five After Five

Earn an Associate in Arts Degree in One Year

The Five after Five accelerated degree program at Wayne Community College allows students the opportunity to earn an Associate in Arts degree in one year. Courses will be completed during five 8-Week Mini-Semesters utilizing both online and face to face evening classes at WCC’s Seymour Johnson Air Force Base location.

Five after Five students must be 100% dedicated to the rigor of the program. The Five after Five cohort model will allow students to share their experiences and successes with the same classmates throughout the duration of the program.

To be eligible for the transfer of all college credits under the North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement, students must graduate from the community college with an Associate in Arts (AA) or Associate in Science (AS) degree and have an overall Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale and a grade of “C” or better in all CAA courses. Students who do not complete the degree are eligible to transfer credits on a course-by-course basis.
