Passport Program UNC Charlotte/CPCC partnership Started in 2010 to create a clear path for transfer that provides structured advising and assistance through the admissions process. Develop a more prepared transfer student- minimize transfer shock. Long-standing relationship with Central Piedmont Community College/largest feeder- over 850 students enroll each year. Students are selected from UNC Charlotte’s pool of denied local applicants. Use specific criteria to identify students who will be successful in the program. Enroll 110-120 Passport students annually.

Program Outcomes: 1.After one semester at UNC Charlotte, the average GPA of a Passport student has consistently increased from 2012-2014. Their performance is equal to or greater than all transfer students who enrolled with between 24-29 hours of transfer credit. 2.After one semester at UNC Charlotte, the average GPA of students who completed the UCOL 1000 course has on average been higher than Passport students who did not complete the course. 3.Many Passport students quickly become active on campus upon their arrival. We have had students participate in athletics, join Residence Hall council, become tour guides, study abroad and report for the student media group (this student covered the DNC for UNC Charlotte during her first week on campus).
