High School Student Enrollment

The College provides seamless opportunities for high school students to get a head start with their college education by enrolling in eligible pathways through Career and College Promise (“CCP”). Enrollment in identified courses is available to students enrolled in public and private schools (including home schools) through articulation agreements between the school system and the College and approved by the North Carolina Community College System Office.

CCP Overview

CCP provides seamless dual enrollment educational opportunities for eligible North Carolina high school students to accelerate completion of college certificates, diplomas and associate degrees that lead to college transfer or provide entry‐level job skills. The College offers the following CCP pathways aligned with the K‐12 curriculum, career and college ready standards adopted by the State Board of Education:

1. College Transfer Pathway, leading to a college transfer certificate requiring the successful completion of thirty (30) semester hours of college transfer courses, including English and mathematics, for qualified junior and senior high school students;

2. Career and Technical Education Pathway, leading to a certificate or diploma aligned with one or more high school Tech Prep Career Clusters; and

3. Cooperative Innovative High School Pathway

Tuition is waived for CCP students; however, all CCP students taking classes on-site at the College or online though the College, except for those in Cooperative Innovative High School Programs, must purchase their own textbooks and supplies required for their classes. Transportation for high school students will not be provided by the College. 

Please see a High School Student Success Advisor for the specific and uniform admission’s criteria and program requirements for CCP enrollment.

4. Workforce Continuing Education Pathway, leading to a state or industry recognized credential aligned with a high school career cluster as well as providing entry level job skills.

Exclusive College Programs for Minors

Unless they are participating in a CCP program, the College cannot offer enrollment options for students who are under the age of sixteen (16) unless they have earned a high school diploma.
