Career and College Promise Program

  • Career & College Promise (CCP) is North Carolina’s dual enrollment program for high school students. This program allows eligible NC high school students to enroll in college classes at North Carolina community colleges and universities through their high school. Students who successfully complete college courses earn college credit they can take with them after graduation. In many cases, students can also earn dual credit — meeting high school graduation requirements with college courses.

    CCP pathways offer students rigorous and relevant course work designed to engage their interests and help them achieve educational and career goals. For students interested in technical careers and post-secondary education, the courses they encounter as part of a CCP pathway will align closely with the level of work that will be expected of them after finishing high school.

    Available Pathways:

    College Transfer – College transfer pathways provide tuition-free course credits toward the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science that will transfer seamlessly to any public or participating private college or university.

    Technical Careers – Earn tuition-free course credits at an NC Community College toward a job credential, certificate or diploma in a technical career.

    –These pathways are meant to be completed during high school and start your career after you graduate or count toward AAS degrees at Coastal.
