Common Numbering System (CNS)

The CNS Transfer Course Search was developed by the UNC System Office to help prospective transfer students determine how courses completed at other 4-year UNC institutions and at NC Community College’s may transfer to any UNC System 4-year school. Entering a course into the search will provide output showing how the course transfers to any of the University of North Carolina System’s 4-year schools. If your Common Numbering System (CNS) course isn’t transferring the way you expect when you get to UNC- Chapel Hill, you can initiate the UNC CNS Transfer Credit Appeal Procedure.
