Transfer of Credits

Transfer icon - Icon made by Adam Whitcroft from Flaticon.comAll courses taken for general education credit toward an Associate in Arts or an Associate in Science degree will transfer to Barton. At Barton, these courses are accepted for core credit even if you have not yet completed your associate’s degree. The College does not give any credit for grades below a “C.”

Barton College participates in the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement with North Carolina Community Colleges. Up to sixty-four (64) semester hours can transfer from a two-year college. If you transfer before completing your associate’s degree, we guarantee that any equivalent major courses will count for credit, just as they do for students with two-year degrees.

Forty-five (45) semester hours must be taken at Barton College, of which thirty (30) semester hours must be in upper level courses, and of which fifteen (15) semester hours must be in the major.

A minimum of 32 semester hours of work must be taken at Barton College. Within these 32 hours, the following conditions must be met:

  1. At least 21 hours must be at the 300 or 400 level
  2. At least 15 hours must be in the major (of which at least nine must be 300 or 400 level courses)
  3. At least 24 of the last 32 academic credit hours applied to the degree requirements must be earned in Barton College courses.

Students wishing to take classes at another regionally accredited college or university must file a petition with the Office of the Registrar and have it approved before starting course work at another institution if the courses are to be transferred back to Barton College.
