Narrative

Cape Fear Community College is an open door, comprehensive, multi campus community college that in accordance with its mission statement (CFCC Mission Statement pg 2) focuses on vocational, technical, pre baccalaureate, basic skills and literacy education, and continuing education programs and services. Admission policies are published in the CFCC Catalog and Student Handbook (Admissions pg 4), in the Schedule of Classes each semester (Admissions pg 3), and available on the college website (Admissions). Admission policies have been established in accordance with the North Carolina Administrative Code (NCAC) and include all on-campus, off-campus, and distance learning programs.

Admission to Curriculum Programs
Students seeking admission to curriculum programs must submit a final high school transcript or GED, transcripts from post secondary educational institutions attended, and placement test results (ACT, SAT, Accuplacer, CPT, ACT COMPASS) as required and outlined in the CFCC Catalog and Student Handbook (General Admission Process pg 7). The placement test results are used for proper placement in Math and English courses.

Health Science programs have limited enrollment and a very competitive selective admission process with application deadlines (Selective Admissions/Health Sciences Programs pg 4). The selective admission criteria are based on a point count. Because points are awarded to each completed requirement in the criteria, the process contains no subjectivity.

Admission requirements for Concurrent Enrollment/Huskins students are published in the CFCC Catalog and Student Handbook (Concurrent Enrollment/Huskins pg 5) and available on the college website (High School Programs). High school and home schooled students from New Hanover and Pender Counties may enroll in college courses by meeting the eligibility requirements listed in the CFCC Catalog and Student Handbook. Students must have school principal and parental approval to be admitted (Application).

Information regarding admission of distance learning students, transfer students, transient students, special credit lifelong learners, and international students, as well as provisional admission and re-admission information can be found in the CFCC Catalog and Student Handbook (Admissions pg 4).
