Career and College Promise in Orange County

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.

  • Be a HS junior or senior;
  • Have a weighted high school GPA of at least 3.0 for admission OR be recommended by his/her high school;
