Spring 2020 CCP Courses--COVID-19 Update
I know that all of RCCC courses have been moved to an online platform since school has been temporarily closed until May 15th. For some of you, this may create issues for your RCCC courses such as lack of technology, wifi issues, etc.
Please communicate and contact your instructor at RCCC first to let them know of your issues as they may be able to assist as well. You should have received notification from your instructors that courses will continue and grades will be reported as usual. Instructors should also be communicating with you about the process for withdrawals and incompletes.
Please email me or your alpha counselor to let us know if you're not able to access your course. THIS MEANS THAT IF YOU ARE HAVING ISSUES SUCH AS LACK OF TECHNOLOGY, ACCESS TO WIFI, ETC. THIS DOES NOT PERTAIN TO YOU IF YOU HAVE ACCESS AND INTERNET CAPABILITIES, BUT JUST AREN'T COMPLETING YOUR ASSIGNMENTS AND KEEPING UP WITH THE WORK.
If you are having these technological issues that are preventing you from completing the coursework, YOU MUST LET YOUR COUNSELOR KNOW PRIOR TO MAY 11TH!!! THIS IS THE LAST DAY YOU ARE ABLE TO WITHDRAW FROM THE COURSE PER RCCC!!
Again, please be safe out there and we certainly miss all of you and hopefully can return to NCHS soon!
CCP Registration for Summer 2020, Fall 2020 Courses:
Due to the extenuating circumstances of the COVID-19 situation and the extended leave from school for students, registration will not follow the previous protocol of registering here at school with Ms. Baldwin, our RCCC advisor, on April 8th and 9th. Instead, I am working with Ms. Baldwin to facilitate registration based off student's CCP course requests for Academic year of 2020-2021. Remember, this registration cycle is just for students intending to take CCP courses either in Summer 2020 and Fall 2020. Students who registered to take CCP courses JUST in Spring 2021 will register in the Fall of 2020 next school year. AS I WORK THROUGH REGISTRATION WITH MS. BALDWIN, PLEASE BE CHECKING YOUR EMAILS AS I MAY NEED ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FROM YOU ABOUT YOUR CCP COURSES, TIMES, SCHEDULE, ETC. I know this is a very complicated time right now in our world and has created a lot of anxiety for many people, just know that we here at NCHS are working very dilligently to make sure we support students in the best capacity. Everyone please take the necessary and proper safety precautions for yourself, family, friends, and the betterment of society as whole. PLEASE BE CHECKING YOUR EMAIL + REMIND TEXT FOR ANY UPDATES OR FURTHER INFORMATION THAT IS NEEDED!

What is Career & College Promise (CCP)? The Career and College Promise Program is a state-sponsored collaboration between High Schools and public colleges and universities across North Carolina. CCP allows qualified students to take tuition-free courses that earn high school and college credits at the same time. Courses taken in the College Transfer Pathway receive Honors-level high school credit (weighted) and will transfer to many four-year colleges and universities. Courses taken in the Career and Technical Education Pathway receive standard high school credit (non-weighted) and can help students complete diploma, certificate or degree programs at community colleges.
Why take CCP courses? Many high school students are taking dual-credit/dual-enrollment courses to get an early start on their college education. North Carolina pays tuition costs for CCP, Cabarrus County Schools covers textbook costs, and many credits earned are transferrable to public for-year colleges in North Carolina. CCP (or dual enrollment) is an excellent way to get a jump start. Additionally, the list of CCP courses available to students expands options for classes in high school. Courses taken in the CCP College Transfer Pathway earn weighted quality points, similar to AP classes for those in the Class of 2019 and beyond. Benefits include: high school & college credit, and courses are free!
Who pays for CCP? The state of North Carolina pays the tuition for courses taken through the CCP Program. Cabarrus County Schools provides textbooks (or reimbursement) for courses taken during Fall and Spring semesters only. Textbook reimbursements are not available for summer courses. Students are responsible for payment of administrative fees for summer courses.
What are the requirements for CCP courses? To participate in CCP, students must meet criteria set by the State of North Carolina. This criteria includes grade-level limitations, GPA minimums and test scores. In addition to these entry requirements, students should have sufficient high school credits to allow for a no-credit travel period (if one is needed).
- high school junior or senior
- 2.8 or higher Unweighted GPA
- meet minimum test scores on the PSAT, PLAN, ACT, SAT or Accuplacer
What are the minimum test scores needed? See the table below to determine if you meet the minimum test score requirements. If you do not meet the requirements with a test you have already taken, you can register to take the Accuplacer at RCCC to see if you can score high enough to enroll.

Important Facts for CCP Students
Choosing CCP classes means you are ready for the responsibility of a college class. This includes being knowledgeable about policies of both the high school and community college, where they are similar and where they are not directly aligned. Ignorance is not an excuse, as college students are expected to proactively seek information that impacts their choices.
Failing CCP classes will negatively impact your high school and college transcripts and can impact your future eligibility for financial aid and college athletics. Students who become concerned that they may fail their CCP courses should immediately contact the CCP Advisor MRs. Emily Baldwin (email@example.com), their RCCC course instructor and high school counselor to request assistance and support. NCHS students who fail CCP courses may not be allowed to continue in the program.
Dropping CCP classes outside of the normal NCHS schedule change process/window will result in a WF (Withdraw Failing) on your high school transcript and negatively impact your high school GPA. Even though the college RCCC will allow you to do so, NCHS students may not drop CCP classes outside of the NCHS schedule change process/deadline without the prior consent of their high school counselor.
Summer CCP classes are available for students to take after their Junior year only. Students are responsible for any RCCC administrative and/or registration fees as well as books for all summer courses. Fees vary in price, but can be $20-80 per course, depending on the course.
Students with Disabilities, IEP, or 504 Plans: If a student intends for their accommodations from an IEP or 504 plan to be honored in college courses, they will need to see the Office of Accessibility at RCCC in order to complete the intake form and submit documentation. Office of Accessibility
Many CCP courses require textbooks or other materials. CCS may have books available to students to check out or may provide approval to purchase for Reimbursement. Many courses provide a free E-Textbook already downloaded into your account for the course, so you may not need the actual textbook. Please research materials needed by logging into your RCCC Student Account on Blackboard (course syllabus or course materials), the RCCC Online Bookstore, WebAdvisor, or checking with the instructor directly. If the E-Textbook is not available and you need the textbook, you may request reimbursement by completing this form: CCP Textbook Request Form.
- CCS does reimburse students for purchased books that students will surrender to CCS at the end of the course. This is ONLY courses who do not provide pre-loaded E-Textbook – see below.
- To find out the textbook you need for your RCCC CCP course go to https://rccc.textbookx.com/institutional/index.php This site will tell you exactly what you need for your course.
- Before you buy a required hard copy book, fill out the CCP Textbook Request Form for Mrs. Jacobs (Lacee.firstname.lastname@example.org) . You must do this when your class begins (within the first week).
- CCS does not reimburse Cosmetology students for their kit but does pre-pay for your online ebook.
