At Durham Technical Community College, the student and the
faculty member are obliged to meet a number of reciprocal responsibilities
within the student-teacher relationship.
Regular attendance is required for the student to complete
all course requirements and receive the optimum benefit of instruction.
In the event of absence, it is the student’s responsibility to make
up all missed work in the most timely manner possible. Failure to make
up missed work will adversely affect the student’s course grade.

Withdrawals, Faculty Drops, and Class Absences section.
Associate in Arts and Associate in Science
Either the Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree or the Associate in Science (A.S.) degree is awarded for the University Transfer program. Students who began their program Fall Semester 1997 or later and who complete the University Transfer program (for courses with a grade of C or above), will transfer as a junior upon acceptance to all University of North Carolina (UNC) System institutions. After being accepted at the four-year university, students who complete the general education core (for courses with a grade of C or above) will meet general education requirements for all UNC System institutions. University Transfer student advisors and faculty in the University Transfer Department can assist students with most basic transfer information for public and private institutions in North Carolina.
Associate in Applied Science
The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree is awarded for two-year
technical programs which focus on preparing the student for a profession.
There are senior institutions which accept some of these degrees as
the first two years of a four-year program. Other senior institutions
evaluate the Associate in Applied Science degree on a course-by-course

program which a student may structure to meet individual needs. Courses
for the A.G.E. degree may be selected from either the University Transfer
program or from technical programs, provided that a minimum of 18 credits
in a general education core is included. Transferability of courses
depends on which specific courses are selected for the degree. Additional
