Dual Admission Program

The dual admission program offers a structured, guaranteed pathway for progressing directly from an associate’s degree to a bachelor’s degree. Students who participate in the program are considered fully admitted to the community college and conditionally admitted to either NC State or ECU.  Successful completion of any college transfer degree program grants the student guaranteed admission to the university! Note: Competitive programs are not guaranteed. 

Students will benefit from access to resources at both institutions including support services such as financial aid and advising.  In addition, they will have the opportunity to participate in co-curricular activities at the senior institution.

Dual admission is an excellent approach to an affordable education, and offers a strategic option to secure admissions in a highly competitive college market.  JCC is honored to be selected by NC State and ECU to provide the foundational courses and initial collegiate experience to the dual admission participants!
