Option will allow western Johnston students to study close to home.
Johnston Community College is excited to offer college transfer courses at its Cleveland Center in western Johnston County starting in January.
Students can select from a full slate of general education courses, which will be offered in hybrid format allowing students to get a full-time schedule through a blend of face-to-face and online options.
“We are excited to offer college transfer courses at our Cleveland Center,” said Dr. Linda Smith, JCC’s vice president of instruction. “This area is growing tremendously and this will be a convenient and affordable option that’s close to home for students living in western Johnston County.”
Currently, about 40 percent of JCC’s enrollment is college transfer.
The Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) is a statewide agreement governing the transfer of credits between North Carolina community colleges and North Carolina public universities. It applies to all 58 NC community colleges and 16 university campuses. If all requirements are met, it guarantees admission to one of the 16 UNC institutions.
By completing the first two years towards a bachelor’s degree at a community college, students can save as much $40,000.
JCC also has competitive guaranteed admissions partnerships with N.C. State, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, East Carolina University, and Fayetteville State University.
The following college transfer courses will be offered at various times Monday through Friday at the Cleveland Center: Introduction to Business, Elementary Spanish, General Biology, Pre-Calculus, Introduction to Computers, Writing and Inquiry, College Transfer Success, Statistical Methods, Introduction to Computers, Art Appreciation, General Psychology, and American History.
JCC also offers basic skills courses and health education continuing education classes such as certified nursing assistant and phlebotomy at the Cleveland Center.
Registration for the spring semester is Nov. 1 – Jan. 3.
