Success in today’s global economy may require a two-or four-year degree, a certificate or diploma. Through Career & College Promise (CCP), qualified high-school-age students in North Carolina have the opportunity to pursue these options, tuition free, while they are in high school, allowing them to get a jumpstart on their workplace and college preparation.
If you are a community college faculty or staff member, please review the information below for additional insight.
CCP provides three pathways to help advance eligible students’ post-high school success:
College Transfer – College transfer pathways provide up to 34 hours of tuition-free course credits toward the Core 44, an agreed-upon 44 hours of college credits that will transfer seamlessly to any public or participating private college or university, saving successful students time and money in pursuing four-year degrees.
Technical Careers – Earn tuition-free course credits at an NC Community College toward a job credential, certificate or diploma in a technical career.
Innovative High Schools – Begin earning tuition-free college credits as a high-school student by attending an approved Cooperative Innovative High School.
