CCCC, Methodist announce new partnership

Central Carolina Community College (CCCC) and Methodist University have signed an agreement that will allow CCCC students an assured-entry pathway to Methodist available upon graduation.

The program enables CCCC students who transfer to Methodist to carry with them the credit they have already earned for as much relevant study as possible.

CCCC students may apply to Methodist without incurring any application fees. In addition, students may take two courses, up to eight credits, at Methodist while completing their associate degree at CCCC at the current tuition rate at CCCC. Students are guaranteed admission upon successful completion of the associate degree with a 2.0 grade point average from CCCC.

 “As we continue to work with our education partners to ensure aligned career pathways for our students, this partnership with Methodist offers additional opportunities for our graduates,” said CCCC President Dr. Lisa M. Chapman in a press release. “The agreement not only assures admission to Methodist for Central Carolina graduates, but it also provides them with access to scholarship dollars to assist with their education expenses. Streamlining the transfer process, supporting student engagement in Methodist student activities prior to transfer, and providing dollars toward educational expenses all enhance opportunity and success for CCCC graduates. That’s a win for our community!”

Methodist University President Dr. Stanley T. Wearden said of the agreement: “Methodist University is very appreciative of the partnership with Central Carolina Community College. Students who transfer to Methodist after finishing an associate degree at Central Carolina are among our very best students. They are exceptionally well prepared. This partnership, along with Methodist’s generous scholarship program for Central Carolina students who receive North Carolina Need-Based Scholarships, helps to make receiving an MU bachelor’s degree smooth, seamless, and affordable. We are very proud of this relationship.”
