ACA 122 College Transfer Success

Lecture: 0 Lab: 2 Clinic: 0 Credits: 1

This course provides information and strategies necessary to develop clear academic and professional goals beyond the community college experience. Topics include the CAA, college policies and culture, career exploration, gathering information on senior institutions, strategic planning, critical thinking, and communications skills for a successful academic transition. Upon completion, students should be able to develop an academic plan to transition successfully to senior institutions.

The North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA), a statewide agreement governing the transfer of credits between NC community colleges and NC public universities, requires ACA-122 for all transfer students, and GTCC requires transfer students to take it in their first semester.  Students who do not successfully complete ACA-122 with a C or better in their first semester are required to re-enroll the following semester. This course has been approved for transfer under the CAA as a premajor and/or elective course requirement.

Course is offered in Fall, Spring, and Summer.
