Transfer Pathway Curriculum

For the 2015-16 Academic Year there are two transfer pathways: Arts Pathway and Science Pathway. The two pathways are very similar and differ only slightly in the Math and Science options. Below is the complete listing of course options for the two pathways. These pathways mirror the Universal General Education Component classes of the Associates in Arts and Associates in Science degrees offered by A-B Tech. All courses except language courses are directly transferable to schools in the North Carolina University system.

Courses are offered in a variety of different formats including online, face-to-face and hybrid formats. Speak with your high school counselor to register for courses that will work for your schedule, and to discuss which classes are available in online, face-to-face, or hybrid formats.


To find out if you are eligible for taking courses in one of the transfer tracks, use to the Admissions Requirements link.
