New Transfer Partnership with Campbell

RALEIGH, N.C. (May 22, 2024) – Wake Tech and Campbell University have formed a partnership to provide students at the state's largest community college with a guaranteed pathway to a bachelor's degree. Officials from both institutions signed a Memorandum of Understanding Wednesday at a ceremony at Wake Tech's Scott Northern Wake Campus.

The Campbell Assured Admission Program offers currently enrolled Wake Tech students admission to Campbell upon graduation. The program builds on the Independent Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (ICAA). Students must earn an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree from Wake Tech or an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in Criminal Justice Technology or Biopharmaceutical Technology for guaranteed university admission, and they must enroll at Campbell within one year of graduating from Wake Tech.

To support Wake Tech students in their transition to the university, Campbell faculty and staff will provide communication throughout the transfer process, as well as advising and guidance with admissions and financial aid. Students in the program will also have access to campus events at Campbell, including athletic and cultural activities, to foster a sense of belonging within the university community.

"Campbell University is such an important part of our region's strength and vitality, and it has so much to offer," said Wake Tech President Dr. Scott Ralls. "With this new partnership, Wake Tech students will have exciting new academic options and a clearly defined pathway for continuing their education."

"Whether it's engineering, biological sciences, health care, business or a number of the career fields their students are seeking, the programs offered at Wake Tech align well with both the undergraduate and graduate programs we offer at Campbell University," said Campbell President Dr. J. Bradley Creed. "This agreement with our neighbors to the north is a strategic partnership that will provide a seamless transfer process to support these students' academic and professional goals. We couldn't be happier to align with a dynamic school like Wake Tech."

Interested Wake Tech students must complete a brief online form and an application for admission to Campbell. Some of the university's programs of study may have additional admission requirements.

All Wake Tech academic programs offer opportunities to transfer credits to a four-year college or university, and the college served 10,562 university transfer students in 2022-23. Wake Tech has similar guaranteed admissions partnerships with several UNC System universities, including Appalachian State University, East Carolina University, Fayetteville State University, North Carolina A&T State University, North Carolina State University, UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Charlotte and UNC-Wilmington.
