CVCC is a great place to start your four-year degree.
- It costs a lot less. For what one class can cost at a university, you can get an entire semester's worth of credits at CVCC.
- You will not be sacrificing quality. CVCC is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award diplomas and associate degrees.
- You usually receive more individual attention in your freshman and sophomore years at CVCC. Typically, CVCC class have 30 or fewer students versus the 100-300 freshman-level classes at university. And your classes will be taught by faculty, not graduate assistants.
- Our emphasis is on you, the student. Many large universities require faculty members to do research in their field. CVCC exists for only one purpose: teaching. While some of our faculty members do research, it is not a job requirement.
- Transferability. Institutions that are part of the University of North Carolina system and many private NC colleges will accept CVCC associate degrees granted in 1999 or later as equal to the freshman and sophomore years at these schools. This agreement (Comprehensive Articulation Agreement) means you should be able to transfer into these colleges and universities as a junior. See your academic advisor or student services for details.
- Our college transfer students tell us what a great job we did preparing them for university. They had the preparation and self-confidence to do their best. We count among our alumni teachers, lawyers, speech pathologists and business executives...just to name a few.
- You don't have to leave home to attend CVCC. Many recent high school graduates don't feel comfortable living far away from home. Older students may find it difficult--or impossible--to leave "home." CVCC can help you get started...close to home.
- You'll be surprised how many friends--old and new!--you'll find at CVCC. Your dreams are the limit when attending CVCC!
