A Unique Opportunity to Earn Your Bachelor's Degree on the Campuses of CPCC

Through its partnership with CPCC, Catawba College’s School of Evening and Graduate Studies launched its Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) degree program on the Central Campus of CPCC in August 2012 and its Bachelor of Arts in Education (Birth to Kindergarten) on the Harris Campus of CPCC in August 2013.

Our unique evening block class format allows you to enroll as a full-time student in evening classes while maintaining full-time employment.

The Major
Catawba offers two degrees at CPCC:

Both degrees require 120 semester hours, and have generous credit transfer from CPCC. In most cases, you can earn your bachelor's degree in two years after completing your Associate's degree.cpcc15a.jpg

The CPCC to Catawba Curriculum Guides outline how your CPCC credits will transfer to Catawba and which courses you will need to complete your bachelor's degree. Only courses in which a student has earned a C- or better will transfer. While the guides are based on the 2011-2012 CPCC and Catawba College Catalogs, students who completed an A.A. or A.A.S. degree under other catalogs should contact us for specific evaluation. If you have completed work at other colleges prior to CPCC, please contact us about how to transfer those hours as well.

Students who have earned the A.A. (Associate in Arts often called the “transfer degree”), A.S. (Associate in Science), A.A.S. in Accounting or A.A.S. in Business (Associate of Applied Science in any business concentration) are eligible to enroll in the B.B.A. program. Students who have earned the A.A.S. in Early Childhood Education are eligible to enroll in the B.A.E. program.

Unique Block Format
We use a structured hybrid model. Fall and Spring semesters consist of four blocks; a block is four weeks long. During each block there are five face-to-face class meetings, each Thursday evening and the last Monday evening (6:00-9:45 p.m.), with four online sessions in between face-to-face meetings. Some courses are offered in a bi-weekly format on Tuesday evenings and some are offered in a fully online format.


  • Affordable Tuition: We provide financial assistance for qualified students.

  • Complete @ CPCC: All of your classes will be at CPCC or online.

  • Consistent Schedule: Classes meet on each Thursday night and the last Monday night of each block, a total of 5 class meetings, with 4 online sessions in between face to face class meetings.


  • Personal Attention: The CPCC-based Catawba College experience maximizes student-faculty interaction with small classes and dedicated academic advisors.

Francisca earned her A.A.S. degree in Business Administration – International Business from CPCC in 2010. She transferred 60 hours of course credit to Catawba College and is now working on earning her B.B.A. degree.
"I chose to pursue my bachelor's degree because I feel like it is important to have one in today's world, especially to have a good job and to establish a life career. At Catawba, I was guaranteed that I would never take a class that I wouldn't need, and it's been true.

Catawba's faculty members are amazing - they remember you by name and they care about you as a person. The block format is wonderful; I could never have gone full-time each semester and work a full-time job without it. It lets you focus on each class, one at a time. I have worked really hard to obtain my bachelor's degree. I feel accomplished, and I have high hopes for the future. "
