GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – For college students, transferring from a two-year community college to a four-year university can be overwhelming. So here in the East, ECU and 14 surrounding community colleges have partnered to make the process much easier.
“They complete their associates degree here at PCC whether its in the associates of arts, associates of science, associates in fine arts, associates in engineering, then upon completion of that and completing all other admission requirements to ECU they are guaranteed admissions to ECU.” said Thomas Gould. Vice President, Academic Affairs, Pitt Community College.
Students will commit to a full-time status (a minimum of 12 semester hours) at PCC for a two years and then transfer immediately to ECU.
The Education Advisory Board predicts this method could save a student as much as $43,000.
“We do recognize students in the past have accumulated unnecessary credit hours which also lead to unnecessary debt,” Gould said.
