Welcome to Career and College Promise

Earn college credit, tuition-free, while in high school!  Wake Tech’s Career and College Promise (CCP) program offers eligible high school students the opportunity to earn a credential for employment or credits toward a college degree.

CCP Enrollment for Spring 2021 is Underway!

  • New Students: The first step to enroll in CCP is to complete a mandatory Information Session. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Information Session is being offered online. Students will be able to access the CCP application form link and printable enrollment documents at the conclusion of the session. The CCP Application Form is no longer available for 2021 Spring Enrollment. Students who submitted a 2021 Spring CCP Application Form prior to the deadline are still eligible for enrollment. 

    CCP New Student Enrollment Checklist

Three CCP Pathways

CCP offers three pathways, depending on a student’s goals. Each pathway includes specific coursework.

  • The Career and Technical Education Pathway (CTE) leads to a credential for employment (certificate or diploma) aligned with a high school career cluster (as well as an associate in applied science degree). Students can participate while attending their high school.
  • The College Transfer Pathway (CT) leads to credit hours that count toward a two-year associate’s degree at Wake Tech and align with course requirements at UNC member institutions. Students can participate while attending their high school.
  • Cooperative Innovative High School Programs (CIHSP) allow students to begin earning tuition-free college credits by attending an approved Cooperative Innovative High School, a partnership between Wake Technical Community College and Wake County Public School System (WCPSS).

NOTE: A student may be able to enroll in a College Transfer pathway AND a Career and Technical Education pathway OR two Career and Technical Education pathways with high school and Wake Tech approval.
