Career & College Promise

Career & College Promise (CCP) is a program that allows North Carolina high school students to earn college credits tuition free while still in high school. The program provides seamless dual enrollment educational opportunities for eligible North Carolina high school students in order to accelerate completion of college certificates, diplomas, and associate degrees that lead to college transfer or provide entry-level job skills.

At Carteret Community College, high school students can choose from two pathways:

The College Transfer Pathway

Earn tuition-free course credits toward a four-year degree by taking courses at Carteret Community College. Credits earned in this pathway transfer seamlessly to all University of North Carolina institutions and many of North Carolina’s Independent Colleges and Universities.

The Technical Career Pathway

Earn tuition-free course credits at Carteret Community College towards one of our many Applied Science programs. Students who complete a Technical Career Pathway may be awarded a certificate or diploma upon graduation from high school and all coursework completed in the pathway will count towards an Associate in Applied Science degree at Carteret Community College
