Career and College Promise

Three students photo Career and College Promise (CCP) provides seamless dual enrollment educational opportunities for eligible North Carolina high school students in order to accelerate completion of college certificates, diplomas, and associate degrees that lead to college transfer or provide entry-level job skills.

Each step leading to and each step taken on pathways should prepare high school students for college, both academically and culturally. Therefore, the experience from start to completion will be aligned with a “traditional” college student’s experience. This alignment will ideally ensure students are able to accelerate into careers and college seamlessly after high school graduation.

Qualified public (including undocumented), private, or home-schooled students can earn college credit, which can be applied toward high school credit.

Although Durham Tech may serve students from any North Carolina school through CCP, our primary service area includes Durham and Orange Counties.

Students will be able to enroll in courses taught on the college campus and/or offered online.
