Mission Statement

The mission of the College Transition Center at Davidson-Davie Community College is to support the overall college mission by promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in a positive, supportive environment that prioritizes an individualized response to every student, regardless of previous education or ability level.


The College Transition Center offers web-based English and math courses with an emphasis on individual and small group instruction. Instructors provide an engaging, positive and supportive environment. In order to meet the financial needs of all students, the Transition Center offers the opportunity to enroll in Transition courses in College and Career Readiness or Curriculum.

Admission Requirements:

Those whose GPA is between and including 2.2 to 2.799 will have the opportunity to take the Tier 2 Assessment and/or enroll in a corequisite course that will support the student in the gateway math and/or English.
  • Students who graduated 10 or more years ago or do not meet the state requirements for the HiSet test will take the NROC Placement Assessment and may enroll in Transition English and Math after speaking with the Transition Center team.
