Career and College Promise prepares high school students for life after high school

Are you a motivated high school student? Do want a head start on college or career training? Do you want FREE college tuition?

With Career and College Promise, you can work toward your high school graduation while also earning FREE college credit toward a certificate, diploma, associate degree or bachelor’s degree.

Career & College Promise (CCP)

Career and College Promise (CCP) gives high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to get a “jump start” and earn college credit toward a two-year or four-year degree. Students are dual enrolled, allowing them to receive both high school and college credit for courses taken through the program. Students can take courses that relate to their interests or career goals, making education more interesting and relevant. College credit earned through CCP will allow students to obtain a credential that can transfer to a four-year university in North Carolina, while saving you money. If getting a tuition-free head start on college sounds good to you and your family, CCP is right for you!
