Overview

The Career and College Promise (CCP) Program allows qualified students to be enrolled in high school and earn tuition free college credits at the same time. Students can earn college credit that can be applied to an Associates in Arts or Associates in Science that can then transfer to all public and many private colleges or universities. Students can also choose to earn credits in the many technical careers offered at CVCC. CVCC offers College and Career Promise classes at all local high schools tuition free. Students take classes on their high school campus during their first period block.

North Carolina high school programs formally known as Huskins, Learn and Earn Online(LEO, and Dual Enrollment are now combined into one--Career and College Promise (CCP). If you are a qualified North Carolina high school junior or senior, CCP gives you the opportunity to pursue these options--tuition free!
(The offering of all courses is contingent on sufficient enrollment.)

CCP provides high school students the following ways to advance post-high school success:

» Career Technical Education Pathway
Leads to a certificate or diploma aligned with a high school Career Cluster.


» College Transfer Pathway
The Career and College Promise College Transfer Pathways allow qualified high school juniors and seniors to complete up to 43 semester hours credit tuition free. Classes identified in the Career and College Transfer Pathways will transfer seamlessly (with a course grade of C or higher) to any North Carolina public university as well as participating private colleges/universities.
