RCC Establishes Two New Partnerships With NC State

Robeson Community College has entered into two partnerships that will provide advanced training, advisement and guaranteed admission to NC State University via the PackTrac and C3 programs.

PackTrac is available to students who are either Associate in Arts or Associate in Science majors with an interest in Agriculture. In PackTrac, students are advised by both an RCC and NCSU advisor as well as learn about the various agriculture academic programs at the university. Upon successful completion of at least 30 transferable hours along with a GPA of 3.0 or higher, students are admitted to a CALS major.

The C3 Program is tailored for students from rural or low-to-moderate income backgrounds who demonstrate the potential for academic success, exhibit a high level of motivation and perseverance. It’s open to students immediately after completing high school or RCC students who have completed less than 30 credit hours. The program pairs one’s path to an NC State degree with academic and social support through specific programmatic support: an NC State advisor, online planning tools, and networking events. Participants in the program commit to earning either the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree, maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher and participate in program activities. Upon completion, students are guaranteed admission to NC State University.

Students interested in participating in PacTrac or C3 should contact either Crystal Edmonds or LaRonda Lowery at 910-272-3700.
