North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University’s General Education program is based on the University’s Core Values:
The general education program consists of 32 credit hours, which satisfies SACSCOC Core Requirement 2.7.3. In compliance with SACSCOC Comprehensive Standard 3.5.1, North Carolina A&T State University's general education program identifies college-level competencies within the specific general education category outcomes: Written Communication; Mathematical, Logical, and Analytical Reasoning; Scientific Reasoning; Social and Behavioral Sciences; Humanities and Fine Arts; Knowledge of African-American Culture and History; Global Awareness; and Student Success.
All information regarding the curriculum, course list, guide to outcomes, as well as course addition information is published on North Carolina A&T State University's general education website: https://www.ncat.edu/provost/general-education-resources/index.php
Students at North Carolina A&T State University are required to pass their General Education courses per the university requirement. To earn a Passport at the University, students must achieve a C or better in all lower-division general education courses counted toward it.
Existing program-level courses that align with the specific general education category outcomes and rationale, are proposed to the General Education Council (GEC) for inclusion on the general education course list. Programs submit general education courses to the GEC for review. The proposal consists of the following:
1. A completed General Education Course List Addition Form (available on website)
2. Completed Signature Page (with designated course coordinator)
3. Detailed Course Syllabus
4. Completed Criteria for Reviewing General Education Course Requests form with signatures (available on website)
Students transferring to North Carolina A&T State University with an AA or AS degree (or completing the general education core, even without an AA or AS degree) from a North Carolina community college will have met all credit requirements for the NC A&T State University general education curriculum.
The Interstate Passport porgram facilitates block transfer of lower-division general education courses to and from participating institutions in the Interstate Passport Network. Because the program's 9 knowledge and skill areas intersect with the University's General Education Program outcomes, North Carolina A&T State University students who earn a Passport and transfer to another institution in the Network will be recognized as having compmleted all or nearly all of its lower-division general education requirements. Likewise, students tranferring into North Carolina A&T State University with a Passport will be recognized as having completed all or nearly all lower-division general education requirements.
