Career and College Promise (CCP)

High school students in North Carolina can get a head start on college – for free! 

They can take college courses and earn college credits while still in high school!   

Career and College Promise, or CCP, allows eligible high school students to take college courses at Wake Tech. It is sometimes referred to as dual enrollment, and the program has had other names in the past (Huskins, Learn and Earn, Learn and Earn online).  

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, diploma, or degree). 

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. 

Cooperative Innovative High Schools (CIHS) 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 Schools.

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. 

HOW TO GET STARTED:

Students start by registering for an information session that covers eligibility for CCP, pathways and options, and the application process.

Register for mandatory Information Session.

At the session students will receive an enrollment packet to complete and return to Wake Tech. They will be notified of acceptance into the CCP program and invited to an orientation session for the upcoming semester.
