Durham Technical Community College and Appalachian State University have signed a memorandum of agreement to ensure DTCC graduates going into the ASU Honors College will be able to enter the university with honors credit already under their belts.

The DTCC Honors Program requires students to earn a B grade or better in all honors credit courses and to maintain a GPA of at least 3.5 for all curriculum classes, according to a DTCC release.

DTCC graduates can receive up to 12 hours of honors credit that they can use toward ASU Honors College requirements. To participate, DTCC graduates must apply for acceptance into ASU and the Honors College.

The agreement begins this fall semester.
