As well, liberal arts core courses will need to be completed to fulfill the degree requirements (see sample schedule). Where you are placed in the program, as well as what courses are transferred into the UNC system, will impact the number of credits you take each semester.

  • A portfolio assessment is the overarching evaluation tool of the degree program. There will be benchmarks throughout the four-year program that will ensure you are prepared to successfully exit the program. Assessments will happen in various formats throughout the program, including the exit point, so that you will be ready to confidently approach a professional certification system within 6-12 months of graduation.

Graduation
As academic requirements are met, you will request a degree audit to make sure everything has been successfully accomplished. When that is confirmed, you will have the opportunity to participate in the UNC undergraduate commencement ceremony and celebrate your graduation with other UNC students, as well as your family and friends. Your diploma will be conferred via standard UNC processes/systems. You will be a UNC graduate!
