Elizabeth City State University in North Carolina Partners With Vance-Granville Community College

Historically Black Elizabeth City State University in North Carolina has signed an agreement with Vance-Granville Community College in Henderson, North Carolina. The agreement is designed to improve transfer student access and success through a collaborative baccalaureate degree program.

Transfer students must complete an associate of arts, an associate of science, or an associate of fine arts degree from Vance-Granville Community College. They must also maintain at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average. Once students complete their associate degrees, they are guaranteed admission to ECSU. Application fees for these transfer students will be waived.

Vance-Granville Community College enrolls nearly 3,200 students according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 31 percent of the student body.

“ECSU continues to collaborate with North Carolina community colleges to afford transfer students a greater opportunity to earn their undergraduate degrees,” said ECSU Chancellor Karrie G. Dixon. “We are excited to work with President Rachael Desmarais of Vance-Granville Community College and her staff to provide these students with a clear path to ECSU so they can continue their education.”
