As a signatory member of the Independent Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (ICAA) between North Carolina Community Colleges and North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities, we’re committed to providing you a seamless transfer with minimal loss of credit or repetition of coursework. 

Gardner-Webb University has provided NC Community College students who are pursuing an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science a completion plan for every undergraduate major offered at Gardner-Webb in the Traditional Undergraduate Program and The Degree Completion Program. By following the published completion plan, a NC Community College student will meet the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement at Gardner-Webb University.

The University also participates in the North Carolina RN to BSN Uniform Articulation Agreement, allowing registered nurses who hold an Associate in Nursing degree from a NC Community College to complete a BSN in as little as 1 year by following the NCCC RN-BSN 5 block degree program.
