UNC Common Numbering System is LIVE!

The University of North Carolina Common Numbering System (UNC CNS) improves the transfer of courses between the 16 UNC System universities and the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM).

When students transfer between two participating CNS institutions, a course taken at the sending institution transfers as the course carrying the same CNS designation at the receiving institution.

The CNS includes lower undergraduate courses most often transferred between the UNC System institutions.

The CNS helps students plan a seamless transfer without loss of academic credit.
