The Carolina Student Transfer Excellence Program (C-STEP) serves to enable more community college students to transfer to and graduate from Carolina. Talented low/middle-income students that are coming from participating community colleges are guaranteed admission to Carolina after completing the program successfully. Upon matriculation to Carolina, incoming C-STEP students are paired with a current C-STEP student or other transfer student who has volunteered to serve as a peer mentor to assist the incoming students in their adjustment to the academic and social environment at Carolina. Visit the C-Step homepage if you need more information than you can find on this page.
