New Career & College Promise Students

Students who are new to Wake Tech’s Career & College Promise (CCP) program, including those who may have obtained CCP credits from another institution, should complete the following steps in order. Remember to check the Important Dates and Deadlines list throughout the process to make sure you don’t miss anything.

Watch the information session

The online information session is available 24/7 and covers eligibility requirements, the application process, pathway options and course offerings. Parents are encouraged to watch as well.


Explore pathways and eligibility requirements

Wake Tech offers CCP students both a College Transfer pathway for those who plan to continue their education at a four-year college or university and a Career and Technical Education pathway for those seeking skills for immediate employment.

Students can take up to two pathways, but if they do, one must be a Career and Technical Education pathway.

Students need to be aware of the GPA requirement, test scores and other benchmarks they need to meet to enroll in CCP.

Print enrollment and eligibility checklists

Apply to CCP

Only one CCP application per student is allowed. Prior to starting your application, review the New CCP Student Application User Manual. Also, ensure all information and email addresses are correct before submitting. (Use a personal email address, if possible, not a high school student address.)

NOTE: Students applying for Summer and Fall terms should select Summer 2023 on the New Student Application Form. Once admitted for Summer 2023, newly accepted students should submit and complete the Fall 2023 Continuing Student Form

Wake County Public School System students can find email addresses for their high school principal/designee to include on their application on the Resources and Links page.

CCP staff can help students check or validate the status of their application form either in person or online.

Students who are notified that their application form is considered incomplete will need to review the instructions provided in the email correspondence.

Once the application is approved, new CCP students will receive an acceptance letter containing information and instructions on next steps for enrollment, including student Key Account activation.

Complete orientation and eLearning Intro

New CCP students are required to complete New Student Orientation for Wake Tech. During the orientation session, you will learn about college resources, student life, campus safety and course registration. The 2½-hour sessions are available in person at various Wake Tech campuses and virtually online. Students completing the orientation session online must pass the required quizzes with an 80% score or higher to receive credit.

Any CCP student planning to take a class that is either partly or entirely online also must complete the e-Learning Intro assessment. It provides a series of learning modules and quizzes to assist with online learning expectations, using the computer and navigating the Blackboard platform, and it must be completed before a student can enroll in an online course.

Review course registration onboarding

New CCP students should review the course registration onboarding presentation before course registration.

Register for classes


Students can register themselves for classes in Self-Service during the designated CCP registration window. CCP staff will send a reminder email prior to the registration deadline.

CCP students are allowed to take only courses within their approved pathway(s), and they also must follow limits on allowed credits and program-specific restrictions. Students who register for courses outside of their approved pathways will be dropped from those courses.

Students can confirm their approved pathway(s) and course schedule by logging into Self-Service or by scheduling a virtual advising appointment with CCP staff.

NOTE: The CCP Office can review and use AP scores (official or unofficial) for registration purposes only. Submit scores to [email protected] prior to registration to satisfy course prerequisites. An official AP Score Report can also be submitted to Registration and Student Records to be evaluated for college credit.

Also, CCP students are not required to go through the North Carolina Residency Determination Service before enrolling, so email CCP staff at [email protected] if you receive the notification "Cont. Enrollment/RCN Expire Before Term Starts" during registration.

After the registration period has ended, students can obtain a Course Request form from CCP staff if they would like to add a class. Submitting the form does not guarantee enrollment in a course, however. Students will be notified if their request is approved.

Get ready for class

Students should check their schedule near the start date for class. Occasionally, a department will choose not to offer a course after registration, which could affect a student's schedule.
