The Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) is an agreement governing transfer between the NC Community College System and the state university system that went into effect fall 1997. Under this agreement students completing Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Engineering (A.E.) and Associate in Science (A.S.) degrees at community colleges, with grades of "C" or better, are able to transfer all 64 semester hours of credit to senior institutions, entering the university with junior status. Courses approved for transfer under the agreement have a statement to that effect in the course description in the college catalog.
