The revision of North Carolina`s National Joint Agreement in 2014 resulted in significant policy changes to encourage the transfer of 58 public community colleges to 16 four-year public institutions in North Carolina. One of the key changes to the directive is that students transferred under the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) following an associate art degree or science associate guaranteed the transfer of at least 60 credits and junior status to a UNC system school.
