Partner Programs

Partner Programs are programs of study that are in conjunction with another college.

Sandhills Community College and Pitt Community College have a collaborative agreement that allows students to attend classes at Sandhills and take classes online at Pitt to graduate with an Associate in Applied Science degree in Health Information Technology.

Advanced Degrees

We partner with UNC-Pembroke of Pembroke, NC and St. Andrews University of Laurinburg, NC to offer several advanced degrees on the Sandhills Community College campus in Pinehurst. The UNC Pembroke programs are offered through a combination of interactive, hybrid, online, and seated classes. Each University has a representative with an office on campus to advise and help you schedule courses and assist you in any way.
