Career & College Promise

NC Career & College PromiseCareer & College Promise (CCP) is a North Carolina initiative to enable eligible high school students to work, tuition free, toward two-or four-year degree, a certificate or diploma. This program is very popular with NC homeschool high schoolers. They can take college level courses tuition free and count the classes on their high school transcript as well as count as college credit.

The program is free to all students who maintain a “B” average and meet other eligibility requirements.

There are three avenues a student can take:

  • College credit completely transferable to all UNC system institutions and many of North Carolina’s independent colleges and universities.
  • A credential, certificate or diploma in a technical career.
  • A high school diploma and two years of college credit in four to five years through innovative cooperative high schools (limited availability).

For more information about the program, download the Curriculum Procedures Reference Manual.
