Articulation Agreement with Winston-Salem State University

Carolina University is delighted to have an articulation agreement with Winston-Salem State University. The partnership is designed to allow students to take courses at WSSU with the goal of completing an Elementary Education degree at both schools. Students who earn a degree from WSSU will be recommended for North Carolina State Licensure.

4 Year Program
Available Residentially

I loved the strong biblical core that I received at Carolina University as part of my Bachelor's degree. When working with my students I often find myself referring to a situation discussed during my time at CU. Another thing I loved about CU was access to the faculty and staff... I could get advice from my professors anytime I needed it—whether it was during class or if I emailed them in the evening. CU was where I needed to be!
