WHAT IS CAREER AND COLLEGE PROMISE?
Career & College Promise (“CCP”) is North Carolina’s dual enrollment program for high school junior and senior students. This program allows eligible NC high school students to enroll in college classes at North Carolina community colleges and universities through their high school. Students who successfully complete college courses earn college credit they can take with them after graduation. In many cases, students can also earn dual credit - meeting high school graduation requirements with college courses.
Career & College Promise offers students the option to choose from these pathways:
- College Transfer - Designed for students planning to continue their educational career beyond high school to eventually achieve an Associate's or Bachelor's degree at a community college or university.
- Career & Technical Education - Allows students to begin a certification or diploma program in a particular technical field or career area.
WHY SHOULD STUDENTS CONSIDER CAREER & COLLEGE PROMISE?
Career & College Promise pathways offer students rigorous and relevant course work designed to engage their interests and help them achieve educational and career goals. For students interested in technical careers and post-secondary education, the courses they encounter as part of a CCP pathway will align closely with the level of work that will be expected of them after finishing high school. In addition, research has shown that high school students who take college courses are more likely to attend and graduate from college with an advanced certification or degree.
Finally, because Career & College Promise pays for college classes taken by high school students, the program also helps reduce the cost of a college degree, career certification, or diploma. Career & College Promise can make post-secondary education a viable option for students who may believe that the cost puts college out of reach for them.
HOW DOES CAREER & COLLEGE PROMISE WORK?
Career & College Promise students, regardless of which pathway they choose, use both high school and college courses to fill their schedules. Some students, especially seniors, may have a heavier load of college courses than high school courses. As part of the application process, students indicate the pathway and program of study they want to pursue. Please see program details for each pathway: College Transfer pathway, Career and Technical Education pathway.
