College Transfer

College Transfer curriculum is designed for students who intend to transfer to a senior college for their baccalaureate degree.

Freshman and sophomore level courses introduce students to areas of study that develop breadth of outlook and contribute to balanced development. This training is complementary to, but different in emphasis from, the specialized training one receives for a job, a profession, or a major in a particular field of study.

The curriculum includes courses in communications, humanities and fine arts, mathematics, science, social sciences, physical education, and elective courses in liberal arts. These courses in the College Transfer Program assist students to develop an understanding and appreciation of the political, social, economic and cultural institutions in our society; to develop the ability for critical and constructive thinking, for problem solving, and ordering of values; to maintain good mental and physical health for self, family, and community, and balanced personal and social adjustment; to use basic mechanical, mathematical, and communication skills to solve everyday problems, understand ideas of others, and express ideas effectively; to understand their cultural heritage; to understand the creative activities of others; and to encourage participation in creative activities.

Upon successful completion of the degree requirements, students are awarded the Associate in Arts, Associate in Engineering, or Associate in Science degree.

Plus (click or tap to expand) + RN to BSN

Barton College, in partnership with Nash Community College (NCC), offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing where students can transfer seamlessly to Barton College to complete their degree upon receiving an Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) degree.

Students who enter NCC after spring 2015 should follow the progression degree plan outlined by the Uniform Articulation Agreement between North Carolina Community Colleges and the constituent institutions of The University of North Carolina (February 2015). Barton College will honor the terms of the uniform articulation agreement by agreeing to follow the procedures governing transfer of ADN degree credits (A.3). Students who follow the progression degree plan for the Associate in General Education (AGE) -BSN (A10300BSN) at Nash Community College and earn the ADN will have fulfilled Barton College’s lower-division general education requirements as well as nursing program entry requirements. Students must complete blocks 1-4 of the uniform articulation agreement prior to transferring to Barton College (the AGE-BSN degree at Nash Community College meets the uniform articulation agreement blocks 1-4).

Failure to follow the RN-BSN progression degree plan at the community college will result in a course-by-course transfer of credit which will likely result in an increase in the time to degree completion.
