Core-to Core

Core-to Core agreements guarantee that credit earned by students who complete an A.A. or A.S. degree at NCC will be accepted towards the core requirements at the four-year institution. Core requirements are the general education portion of a baccalaureate degree. General education requirements vary among institutions. Students benefit from core-to-core agreements because all of the credit earned from the associate degree is applied to the four-year program without evaluating individual courses. Typically, there are also admissions criteria for transfer students outlined in the agreement.
