The CHEPD Undergraduate and Graduate Transfer Programs, organized and administrated by (Links open in new windows) CCIEE and AASCU, is a new form of international educational cooperation with two-way student and faculty exchanges between Chinese and American universities. CCIEE and AASCU select qualified public universities to participate in the program. A total of near100 universities have participated in this program by 2015. UNCP joined a coalition of five U.S. and 32 Chinese universities to offer undergraduate transfer program for Chinese students in March 2005.
UNCP starts the CHEPD Graduate Transfer Program in the fall of 2012.
