Career & College Promise

Through Career & College Promise (CCP), qualified high-school-age students in North Carolina have the opportunity to pursue college credits, tuition-free, while they are in high school, allowing them to get a jumpstart on their workplace and college preparation.


Career and College Promise 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.


To take advantage of these opportunities, students need to speak with their high school counselor, Career Coaches or their career development counselor. You can also call Shawn Dawes at 823-5166, ext. 205. Students will need to obtain the appropriate forms for each semester they plan to attend. Depending on their high school schedules, students can take ECC classes during high school hours or in the evenings, however, if they take courses outside of the school day they must purchase their own textbook.
