How Credits Transfer
Knowing how your credits will transfer is an important factor in your transfer decision. Visit the Transfer Course Equivalency Page to look up how specific courses will transfer to UNCP. Only courses of “C” or better can be transferred. This is not the entire list of course accepted for credit, but contains courses that have previously been reviewed by the Office of Admissions at UNCP. If you have specific questions about a course not listed, please email, firstname.lastname@example.org. If admitted to UNCP, you will receive a full evaluation of all previous coursework.
