College Transfer - AA Vol 39.pdf

The Associate in Arts (AA) degree is designed for students who want to pursue a four-year degree in a number of disciplines, including liberal arts, business, education, social sciences, or nursing, or training at a professional school that requires a strong liberal arts background. 

All associate degree programs are part of the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) which addresses the transfer of students between institutions in the North Carolina Community College System and the constituent institutions of the University of North Carolina system.

The CAA enables Wake Tech graduates of two-year Associate in Arts who are admitted to constituent institutions of the University of North Carolina to transfer with up to 64 credits, which could confer junior status. The CAA is also endorsed by many other independent colleges and universities. However the CAA does not guarantee admission to a specific university or program.


The AA degree (A10100) Program of Study meets the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) course needs of the students and communities we serve. We promote a learning-centered environment designed to assist and equip students to successfully complete the AA degree and transfer to a university or college. The AA degree Program Learning Outcomes are Written Communication, Oral Communication, Critical Thinking, Information Management, and Quantitative Literacy.
