WCC, UNCP Sign “BraveStep” Agreement (PHOTOS)

Wayne Community College students will have an easier time continuing their higher education at another North Carolina university.

Wednesday, WCC President Dr. Thomas A. Walker, Jr. and University of North Carolina at Pembroke Chancellor Dr. Robin G. Cummings signed an agreement between to the two higher learning institutions.

Cummings explained the “BraveStep” agreement creates a pathway for Wayne Community College students to transfer to UNC-Pembroke after completing at least 30 credit hours.

UNCP will select the BraveStep participants from qualified students based on the students’ high school record and test scores on either the SAT or ACT.

Cummings also says UNC-Pembroke is part of the N.C. Promise Tuition Plan, which means in-state undergraduate tuition rates are capped at just $500.

Walker says the agreement should lead to a seamless transfer for WCC students, whether they go in-person or take advantage of online degree programs.

For information, potential participants can contact Kaycee Ingram, Director of the WCC College Transfer Advising Center, at 919-739-6755 or [email protected].
