C-STEP is a pathway for community college students to transfer to and graduate from Carolina.
Through C-STEP, or the Carolina Student Transfer Excellence Program, talented low- and moderate-income high school and community college students are guaranteed admission to Carolina. After being admitted to C-STEP and successfully completing their work at a partner community college, students come to Chapel Hill.
C-STEP gives students access to special events, advising, and transition and support services both at their community college and at Carolina. C-STEP students will be academically prepared and fully engaged in their college and university communities – setting them on a positive path to success.
