We have moved to Cary > 1 year ago. My wife got an associate-degree (2 year program, accounting diploma) back in Canada and she is planning to get a bachelor's degree (prefer on-campus) in an affordable college yet with quality.

We understand that we need to do a evaluation to transfer some of credits from her associate degree education to the bachelor degree. UNC will probably be harder for her to get into, want to know if there are other college/universities.

Just wondering if anyone has similar experiences.

Thanks

Every college has a transfer admission program for people with prior college experience. It's usually a different admissions staff, different process, and different requirements from what applies to the typical freshman applicant. There are people there to help navigate the process and help you determine what credits you have will transfer, and what you will still need. All of the colleges have regular information sessions for transfer students as well. (NC State, for example, has one (or more) every Friday, I believe.) The college websites will have tons of information on the transfer process.

You've lived here a year, and have never heard of NC State University or Duke?

Also, Meredith is a private Women's college with a good reputation. There are some "historically black" colleges that white people (you don't mention your race) do attend and can sometimes get "minority scholarhips" to: NC Central in Durham, Shaw or St. Augustine's in Raleigh.

Not far from the Triangle is Campbell Univ. in Buies Creek (south of Raleigh). I have known many from Raleigh who commuted there.

I'm not positive that UNC has a BS in accounting. I say this because I know that if you have greater than 12 hours in accounting classes (which is what you would have if you have a BS.) you are not eligible to enroll in their masters of accounting program.

I personally highly recommend checking out NCSU. I feel like I came out of there prepared to continue on with whichever path I chose. They don't push public accounting on you, nor the masters program. I know I had a number of working mom/wives who were coming back to school to finish degrees while I was a student. Their experience in the workforce was invaluable for classroom examples.

Glad to know that has changed, because when I was in the Acctg program there in the 1980s, I switched out of it because I got so tired of hearing "When you take the CPA exam, you'll see this..." or "when you're a CPA..." I wasn't really interested in being a CPA but they acted like there was something wrong with me because of that.

Check out the Peace College adult degree program. It is 1 night a week (or 2 nights sometimes, if you need a particular liberal ed requirement). Here is a link:

Don't forget Elon. It's not in the triangle, but it's not too far away and it has a good reputation.
