Campbell, Wake Tech partner to expand student transfer options

RALEIGH — Campbell University agreed to a partnership with Wake Tech on Wednesday to provide students from North Carolina’s largest community college a guaranteed pathway to a bachelor’s degree. Presidents from both schools signed a Memorandum of Understanding at a ceremony at Wake Tech’s Scott Northern Wake Campus in Raleigh. 

As per the agreement, Wake Tech students must earn an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science college transfer degree from Wake Tech, or an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in Criminal Justice Technology or Biopharmaceutical Technology for guaranteed university admission and must enroll at Campbell within one year of graduating from Wake Tech.

“Whether it’s engineering, biological sciences, health care, business or a number of the career fields their students are seeking, the programs offered at Wake Tech align well with both the undergraduate and graduate programs we offer at Campbell University,” said Campbell President Dr. J. Bradley Creed. “This agreement with our neighbors to the north is a strategic partnership that will provide a seamless transfer process to support these students’ academic and professional goals. We couldn’t be happier to align with a dynamic school like Wake Tech.”

To support Wake Tech students in their transition to the university, Campbell faculty and staff will provide communication throughout the transfer process as well as advising and guidance with admissions and financial aid. Students in the program will also have access to campus events at Campbell, including athletic and cultural activities, to foster a sense of belonging within the university community.

“Campbell University is such an important part of our region’s strength and vitality,” said Wake Tech President Dr. Scott Ralls, “and it has so much to offer. With this new partnership, Wake Tech students will have exciting new academic options and a clearly-defined pathway for continuing their education.”
