RALEIGH, North Carolina — It's getting a little easier for North Carolina students to move from a community college to a four-year school.

The presidents of the state community college system and North Carolina's private universities association are to sign an agreement Thursday making it easier for students to transfer credits they've earned.

Twenty-one of North Carolina's 36 independent institutions have agreed to adopt the new standards. More could do so in the future. Most of the state's independent schools are small, ranging from Brevard College in the mountains to Chowan University DownEast.

About 2,000 community college students transfer to one of the independent higher education institutions each year.

A similar alignment of courses and curricula has been in effect for 18 months between the state's community colleges and University of North Carolina campuses.
