Course List

The following courses fulfill general education requirements at most University of North Carolina institutions. These courses may also transfer to other degree programs outside of the UNC system. Be sure to check with an admissions advisor at the college or university you will be attending or the education officer on your installation to help you confirm that credits will transfer to your chosen degree program. Completion of the UNC Core program does not guarantee admission to a UNC system university.
