Career and College Promise provides seamless dual enrollment educational opportunities. It is a clear, focused, and affordable path to future success! Central Carolina Community College offers two Career and College Promise pathways: College Transfer and Career and Technical Education.

College Transfer Pathway The College Transfer Pathway leads to completion of the general education requirements (at least 30 hours) of a baccalaureate degree.

Career and Technical Education Pathway The Career and Technical Education Pathway leads to a college-level certificate, diploma, or degree. The courses can provide partial or full fulfillment of a high school four-unit career cluster.

Eligibility:

• Be a high school junior or senior • Have a weighted GPA of 3.0 on high school courses or have the recommendation of the principal or designee • Meet the prerequisites for the career pathway

To maintain eligibility for either pathway, you must continue to make progress toward high school graduation and maintain a 2.0 in college coursework after completing two courses.
