James Sprunt Community College recently signed a Guaranteed Admissions Agreement with UNC Wilmington, building upon the Bilateral Articulation Agreement that was already in place.

“This is just one more way that we can show students the commitment that exists between our college and UNCW,” said Kenneth Boham, president of James Sprunt Community College. “Students can come to James Sprunt to complete their first two years and transfer seamlessly to UNCW to receive their bachelor’s degree, that is what this agreement assures.”

This new agreement is an additional way to facilitate a smooth transition for transfer students at James Sprunt who are seeking a four-year degree at UNCW. In addition to the agreement that was signed, UNCW has also employed a transfer student success advisor that will be serving our institution to help students complete the admissions process and understand the requirements necessary to pursue a degree at UNCW.

“Community colleges exist to open doors and create new opportunities,” said Boham. “The savings that students can realize by beginning at a community college and transferring are outstanding, and we are continuing to work to ensure that students have a positive experience once they transfer to another institution, whether that be UNCW, the University of Mount Olive, East Carolina University or any of the 17 member institutions in the University of North Carolina System.”

The agreement was signed by Jose V. Sartarelli, the chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and Kenneth Boham, the president of James Sprunt Community College on Friday, November 30, 2018.
