Comprehensive Articulation Agreement Policy

Gardner-Webb University is a signatory school to the 2015 Independent Comprehensive Articulation Agreement with North Carolina Community Colleges. Community college graduates of the Associates in Arts or Associate in Science degree programs who have earned 60 credit hours in approved transfer courses with a grade of “C” or better and an overall GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale will receive at least 60 credit hours of academic credit upon admission to Gardner-Webb. Students enrolled at a North Carolina community college prior to Fall Semester 2014 are subject to the conditions and protections contained in the ICAA in place at the time of their initial community college enrollment as long as they have remained continuously enrolled.

The Independent Comprehensive Articulation Agreement provides numerous benefits to North Carolina Community College graduates as well as students who have not yet completed their associate’s degree. Interested applicants are encouraged to speak with a Gardner-Webb University enrollment counselor to find out how the ICAA will affect their course of study.

Guidance for requirements specific to a student’s intended major at Gardner-Webb may be found on the University’s website.

Participation in the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement does not preclude or negate minimum requirements specified by individual departments at Gardner-Webb University. Every TUG transfer student is also required to earn credit for the upper division General Education requirements (RELI 300 and RELI 301) and four semesters of the Dimensions program. Transfer students can review the departmental requirements under Additional Requirements for Transfer Majors for specific courses required in their major.
