• What is Career & College Promise?

    Wake Tech’s Career & College Promise (CCP) program offers eligible high school students the opportunity to earn credits toward a college degree or a credential for employment – tuition-free. In many cases, students earn dual credit, meeting high school graduation requirements with college courses.

    CCP offers students the opportunity to explore more than 40 academic programs, saving them and their families money on college tuition while also lightening their future course load in college. Students get a feel of the "college experience," and they can boost their admissions profile by demonstrating they are ready for the rigors of college-level classes.

    For students not interested in pursuing a college degree, CCP provides a jump-start to career plans, job training, skills and certifications.

    See the CCP stories of our South Garner High School students.
