    The Career and College Promise Program is designed to provide seamless dual enrollment opportunities for eligible North Carolina high school students. This program can accelerate completion of college certificates, diplomas, and associate degrees that lead to college transfer or provide entry-level job skills. 

    Students may take GTCC coursework by enrolling in one of the three following pathways: 

    1. College Transfer Pathway leading to college transfer credit
    2. Career and Technical Education Pathway leading to a certificate, diploma or degree
    3. Cooperative Innovative High School Pathway

    Students attending a Cooperative Innovative High School program will have their tuition, student fees, textbooks and transportation provided.  Students who are not enrolled at a Cooperative Innovative High School may opt to take courses with their tuition paid through the Career and College Promise Initiative, but the student will be responsible for GTCC student fees, textbooks and transportation.

    For additional information on the college transfer pathways and career and technical education pathways offered at GTCC, please visit GTCC Career and College Promise
