Career and College Promise
High school students in North Carolina can get a head start on college – for free!
They can take college courses and earn college credits while still in high school!
Career and College Promise, or CCP, allows eligible high school students to take college courses at Wake Tech.
CCP offers three pathways, depending on a student’s goals. Each pathway includes specific coursework.
The Career and Technical Education Pathway (CTE) leads to a credential for employment (certificate, diploma, or degree).
The College Transfer Pathway (CT) leads to credit hours that count toward a two-year associate’s degree at Wake Tech and align with course requirements at UNC member institutions.
Cooperative Innovative High Schools (CIHS) allow students to begin earning tuition-free college credits by attending an approved Cooperative Innovative High School, a partnership between Wake Technical Community College and Wake County Public Schools.
