Carteret Community College recognizes its responsibility to provide advanced standing status to those students with valid and credible learning experiences in and beyond the campus classroom.  Degree-seeking students shall be awarded appropriate college credit when their previous studies or training have already provided the knowledge, competencies, and skills associated with a course.  

The College evaluates transfer credit for equivalent courses with a grade of "C" or better from member institutions of the North Carolina Community College System, members of the UNC System, and other post-secondary institutions accredited by a regional accrediting association.

The College’s commitment to this philosophy of advanced standing is coupled with its mandate to ensure standards of academic quality comparable to traditional instruction.  Thus, the College publishes procedures for receiving advanced standing credit.
