UNCW/Davidson-Davie Community College Pathway to Excellence Program

The UNC Wilmington – Davidson-Davie Community College (formerly Davidson County Community College) Pathway to Excellence Program

This program is a partnership between UNCW and Davidson-Davie Community College. It is a pathway for guaranteed admission to UNCW for students completing an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science with a cumulative GPA of at least a 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale) in transferable,  college-level coursework from Davidson-Davie Community College. Guaranteed admission to the university does not constitute admission to a professional school or specific program.  Students entering the pathway will be expected to indicate their plan by submitting their Letter of Intent form to UNCW Transfer Admissions.

UNCW will provide a Transfer Student Success Advisor to meet with students at Davidson-Davie Community College at intervals throughout each semester at the community college, working in collaboration with community college advising staff to help students create a path of transfer and beyond.

UNCW will host Davidson-Davie Community College students annually in an Open House event. UNCW will provide an application event each spring on the Davidson-Davie Community College campus providing application fee waivers to students applying to transfer.

Students entering in under the agreement who have earned an AA or AS-degree meet the requirements of the North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) and will receive a waiver of Foundations and Approaches & Perspective requirements (with the exception of PE, foreign language, and 3 credits from Living in Our Diverse Nation or Living in a Global Society).
