Career & College Promise - South Piedmont Community College
Want to get ahead?
"At South Piedmont Community College your sons and daughters can take college classes while they are still in high school. The N.C. Career & College Promise (CCP) program is a jump start for earning a college degree. Tuition is free. (The N.C. General Assembly funds the program.) High school juniors and seniors (from public high schools, private high schools and home schools) who meet GPA and other requirements are eligible to participate in the CCP program. Freshmen and sophomores may choose to take classes from the Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways focusing on manufacturing, science, technology, engineering, mathematics, agriculture and transportation. Imagine the day your child graduates from high school. Your child can be well on the way to earning an associate degree at South Piedmont Community College. This approach saves your family money and puts your child closer to finishing college."
The Career and College Promise Program allows high school students who qualify to enroll in community college courses while still attending their home school. These courses can be used for dual credit in order to meet high school graduation requirements as well as accumulating towards an associate’s degree or as a plan to meet general education requirements in the college or university setting.
Before registering for any of these courses, students should consult their school counselor on how these credits will be factored into his/her historical grades. Not all career and college promise courses receive accelerated quality points for the purposes of calculating a student's grade point average. The links below contain information on the most current course offerings approved by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.
