Career and College Promise (CCP) is North Carolina’s dual enrollment program for high school students. The initiative implemented by the North Carolina legislature began in spring of 2012. The program allows eligible high school students to enroll in college classes at North Carolina community colleges and universities through their high school. Depending on which pathway a student chooses they may earn college credit that is transferable to any North Carolina University System college or university after they graduate or credit towards a career-technical program offered at a community college. In many cases, students can also earn dual credit allowing them to meet high school graduation requirements with college courses.

Cost: CCP students will not have to pay fees for the Fall 2020 semester. GTCC will be using Government CARES Act funds to pay for fees for CCP students. Students are responsible for the cost of their books. If you have already paid your fees, they will be refunding 4-6 weeks after the start of school. Refund Policy If you receive an automated call or email about fees for Fall 2020, you can ignore them. You are still responsible for purchasing your textbooks.
