Stanly Community College’s transfer degrees offer an economical and efficient way
to work towards a bachelor’s degree. The Associate in Science Teacher Preparation
(A1040T) degree is a good choice for future educators who are interested in teaching
K-12 in STEM fields like math, science, or technical processes (like computer science).
The degree includes education-specific courses while covering all general education
requirements for University Transfer.
UNC-system universities (and most private colleges and universities) will accept the
completed ASTP degree as a package, which will waive the undergraduate general education
requirements and allow the student to start with junior status.
Courses identified as Universal General Education Transfer Component courses (UGETC)
will transfer to the UNC-system universities and receive course-for-course credit (provided students earn a C or better in these courses). Other courses marked
for transfer may receive general education or elective credit. So long as the entire
degree is completed, the courses in the AATP will transfer under the articulation
agreement with North Carolina public institutions and under agreements with many private
institutions. Some SCC courses may not meet general education core requirements if
taken outside the degree path. Therefore, students should work closely with their
success coaches when registering for courses and planning their futures.
If a student has an Associate in Science Teacher Preparation (ASTP) degree, at least
a 2.7 grade point average, and a C or better in all transfer courses, he or she will
be considered for transfer by the senior institution. The student must still meet
the requirements for the receiving institutions admissions as set forth by state statute.
The Associate in Science Teacher Preparation (AATP) degree is a good choice for students
who are interested in teaching K-12 in a STEM field and who plan to move on to a 4-year
institution to complete their teaching credentials. The program concentrates upon
education offerings and on courses in mathematics and the sciences. Students will
take 45 hours of courses tied to general education requirements, 14 hours of courses
tied to education, and one hour tied to academic transition (60-61 in total).
The College faculty and success coach staff will work closely with students to plan
their transfer programs. The program is designed to transfer to most private colleges
and all colleges in the University of North Carolina System (senior institutions).
Some SCC courses may not meet general education core requirements. Therefore, students
should work closely with their success coaches when registering for courses and planning
their futures. If a student has an Associate in Science Teacher Preparation (ASTP)
degree and at least a 2.7 grade point average, he or she will be considered for transfer
by the senior institution.
