CCC&TI Announces Music Program Transfer Agreement With UNC-Charlotte

HUDSON, NC (May 23, 2019) — Local music majors will now have an easier path to a 4-year degree, thanks to a new agreement between Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute (CCC&TI) and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNC-Charlotte).

Taking effect in Fall 2019, the new bilateral articulation agreement will allow students who complete the 2-year Associate in Fine Arts in Music degree at CCC&TI to transfer their credits to complete one of several music bachelor’s degrees at UNC-Charlotte.

“Basically, it guarantees admission into Charlotte’s program and helps students avoid several general education classes that they would have to complete if they pursued a Music degree at other universities,” CCC&TI Music Program Director Justin Butler said, adding that students will be able to enter UNC-Charlotte as a junior. “This is a great opportunity for a student who wants to study music, while enjoying the benefits of completing the first two years of a 4-year degree at a community college.”

Though students will still have to meet UNC-Charlotte’s admission requirements, including a formal audition, the transition from community college to the university will be seamless thanks to the new agreement, Butler said.

UNC-Charlotte’s Music Program offers seven bachelor’s degree options: Bachelor of Arts in Music, Bachelor of Music with a concentration in Composition, Bachelor of Music with a concentration in Jazz Studies, Bachelor of Music with a concentration in Choral/General Music Education, Bachelor of Music with a concentration in Instrumental/General Music Education, Bachelor of Music with a concentration in Instrumental Music Performance and Bachelor of Music with a concentration in Vocal Music Performance.

For students wanting to learn more about the agreement or to enroll in the Music program at CCC&TI, please contact Justin Butler at 828-726-2457 or visit the program website at www.cccti.edu/Programs/AFAMusic.asp.
