Transfer Students interested in UNC may be eligible for C-Step

UNC C-Step

unctarheels_largeInterested in transferring to UNC-CH in 2018?

Consider the Carolina Student Transfer Excellence Program (C-STEP). C-STEP is designed to foster success by identifying talented low-to-moderate income students while they are early in their community college careers. Selected students are guaranteed eventual admission to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill provided they complete the Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree and maintain a minimum cumulative G.P.A. of 3.2.  By the time C-STEP students enroll as juniors at Carolina, they have already forged connections with Carolina students, faculty, and staff – connections that lead to smoother transitions, strong engagement, and better success.

To be considered for the C-STEP program, students need to complete the application by April 1, 2017.

The STEM center can help with Math and Science courses. REAL helps with writing, SPEAK helps with speeches and the Foreign Language Center (FLC) can help with Foreign Language classes.
