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. In many cases, students can also earn dual credit allowing them to meet high school graduation requirements with college courses. Tuition is waived for this program but students are responsible for fees and books. A minimum unweighted GPA of 2.8 is required for this program OR college ready test scores for PSAT, SAT, pre-ACT, ACT (see document attached)
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.

This is a lot of information. I would recommend these steps:
- Review the Dual Credit Allowances document – go to the last 2 pages which shows the high school requirements and the GTCC course satisfies them for dual credit.
- Watch the NEW Admissions Presentation - click "Join Presentation" to view the recording
- Look at the Pathways
- Complete the application and forms
Once you and your student have viewed the admissions meeting, you can scan your admissions packet and email the documents as attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can mail your admissions packet to our office. Request your high school transcript through CFNC.org. Once you have submitted your application packet, please allow 10 days and then activate your Titan Account using the attached document. We will send registration instructions to your GTCC email so please check this frequently. I talked about this in the admissions meeting that you viewed (webadvisor instructions linked).
