NC Career & College Promise: What is it?
The Career & College Promise (CCP) program offers motivated North Carolina high school students a clear, focused, and affordable path to future success, allowing them to get a head start on their career and college preparation. Through CCP pathways, qualified North Carolina high school juniors and seniors have the opportunity to enroll – tuition free – in community college courses that lead to a certificate, diploma, or degree as well as provide entry-level job skills. Academic credits earned will enable students who continue into postsecondary education after high school graduation to complete a postsecondary credential in less time than would normally be required.
