Co-Admissions Programs

GTCC partners with North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (N.C. A&T) to offer a co-admission program that provide you a seamless path from GTCC to the partner college. This is not simply a college transfer program. Co-admission students are enrolled at both colleges and have many of the same benefits and privileges as students at the partner college.

How co-admission works: 

  • You complete your first two years at GTCC and earn your associate degree while paying the lower community college tuition rate. 
  • In your third and fourth year, you take classes at N.C. A&T to earn your Bachelor of Science degree from that program.

Key benefits of co-admission:

  • Complete one application and pay no application fee for N.C. A&T.
  • Save thousands of dollars in tuition and fees your first two years of college.
  • Federal and financial aid disbursement is coordinated.
  • Special scholarship opportunities may be available for co-admission students.
  • Coordinate degree completion with on-site advising for efficient transfer credit.

To enroll as a co-admission student, submit a formal application to the program and meet the following admission requirements:

  • Minimum SAT scores of 500/math and 500/verbal or composite ACT score of at least 21
  • Minimum high school GPA of 3.0 (weighted)
  • Must commit to full-time student status (16-17 credit hours of coursework per term)

To get started, email GTCC's Admissions Office at or call 336-334-4822, ext. 0.

The GTCC – N.C. A&T program is for students who want to pursue a career in engineering.
