Transfer Classes with Honors Credits
Core 44 College Transfer Pathways is a choice for honors credit students. Core 44 college transfer classes are part of a statewide Comprehensive Articulation Agreement, a statewide agreement governing the transfer of credits between North Carolina community colleges and public universities, as well as several independent colleges across the state. Core 44 classes completed with a grade C or above are transferable.
Students do not have to complete the entire pathway. They can enroll in just one class or several to supplement their high school schedule and get a jumpstart on a four-year degree or a two-year degree from Blue Ridge.
Students completing the Core 44 College Transfer Pathway may continue enrollment at Blue Ridge in either the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science Transfer Core Diploma. “This diploma is designed to allow students to complete their general education core requirements and then transfer to a four-year institution” as outlined in the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement. After graduating high school, students may also pursue a two-year associate degree and transfer to a four-year institution as a junior.
Students completing the Core 44 College Transfer Pathway will have only 3 years remaining for a bachelors degree, a savings of approximately $13,000 (based on the average cost at area four-year universities).
