CCP Registration Forms and Process for 2021-2022
If you are interested in taking RCCC community college classes while in high school for the 2021-2022 Academic School Year, please complete the following steps. First you will need to fill out the following 2021-2022 CCP Interest Form.
The form will open on Monday, January 18th and the deadline to complete it will be FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26th at 2:30 p.m.!! If you do not complete this form by the deadline, you will not be admitted into the CCP program for the Fall 2021 semester.
If you are a rising 12th grader and currently enrolled in the CCP program, then you DO NOT NEED to complete the following forms: 1. Career and College Promise Application or 2. Student Agreement Form. These forms are for students who aren't currently enrolled in the CCP program. ALL STUDENTS will however need to complete the 2021-2022 CCP Interest Form and CCP User Agreement Form.
In order to be eligible for College Transfer Pathway courses, you must have an unweighted GPA of 2.8 and be a rising Junior or Senior.
For Career and Technical Education Pathways, if you do not have an unweighted GPA of 2.8, then you will need to complete an RCCC LOW GPA APPROVAL FORM. This form will be reviewed by RCCC admissions to determine if you are accepted or denied into the CCP program.
HERE ARE THE STEPS:
IF YOU ARE REGISTERING FOR THE CCP DUAL ENROLLMENT PROGRAM FOR THE FIRST TIME AND ARE ELIGIBLE, YOU WILL NEED TO COMPLETE ALL 4 OF THE FOLLOWING STEPS. (IF YOU ARE ALREADY IN THE CCP PROGRAM, THEN YOU WILL NEED TO COMPLETE STEPS 1 AND 3).
1. Complete the 2021-2022 CCP Interest Form by the deadline of FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26th @ 2:30 p.m. The form will close after the deadline.
3. CCP User Agreement Form: Make sure this form is digitally signed and emailed to Mr. Massey or your Alpha School Counselor. You must have this form electronically signed and turned in in order to be registered. READ THIS DOCUMENT AND PAY ATTENTION TO THE WITHDRAWAL (WF) SECTION
4. Career and College Promise Application: You'll need to know your CFNC log-in information to complete the application and apply. If you don't remember your CFNC log-in information, here is a link to help you recover it: CFNC Account Recovery. If that doesn't work, then you may need to create a new CFNC account or contact CFNC directly.
4(A). When completing this application, it is vital that you CHOOSE THE CORRECT PATHWAY ON YOUR APPLICATION ALIGNED WITH THE COURSES THAT YOU ARE WANTING TO TAKE, CHOOSE FALL 2021 AS YOUR ENROLLMENT START AND PUT IN YOUR CORRECT GRADUATION DATE (2022, 2023). Most students choose the "Associate in Arts" or the "Associate in Science" pathways as they have more course options. If you are more interested in taking Science and Math courses, then you would choose ASSOCIATE IN SCIENCE. If you are interested in taking more Social Sciences/History/Communication courses, then you would choose ASSOCIATE IN ARTS. The pathways are listed here: College Transfer Pathways and Career and Technical Education Pathways. MAKE SURE TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE PATHWAY RESTRICTIONS FOR DIFFERENT COURSES AND REQUIREMENTS.
Also, make sure you are aware of the CCP courses that are dual credit---meaning they can satisfy a high school graduation requirement (For Example: To satisfy English 3 graduation requirement, you would have to take Eng 111, Eng 112, and Eng 231). I don't recommend doing this for English courses since it's a 3 for 1 course credit. Here's a link to the those dual credit course requirements: Dual Credit CCP courses requirements to satisfy High School graduation credits.
**THESE ARE COLLEGE LEVEL COURSES. ONCE YOU ARE ENROLLED YOU MAY NOT DROP THE COURSE. IF YOU DROP A CCP COURSES OUTSIDE OF OUR NCHS DESIGNATED SCHEDULE CHANGE WINDOWS, YOU WILL RECEIVE A "WF" (WITHDRAW FAILING) ON YOUR HIGH SCHOOL TRANSCRIPT AND IT WILL NEGATIVELY AFFECT YOUR HIGH SCHOOL GPA (AND POTENTIALLY YOUR FAFSA FINANCIAL AID). IT IS IMPORTANT THAT ONCE YOU RECEIVE YOUR RCCC STUDENT EMAIL ACCOUNT THAT YOU ARE CONSISTENTLY CHECKING IT. THIS IS THE MAIN FORM OF COMMUNICATION FROM YOUR RCCC INSTRUCTORS FOR COURSE INFORMATION**
If you have any questions about the CCP program or application process, please reach out to Mr. Massey (Zachary.Massey@cabarrus.k12.nc.us)

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 (firstname.lastname@example.org), 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 up to $50 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: Fall 2020 CCP Textbook Request Form .
- CCS reimburses up to $50 to students for purchased required books, e-textbooks, etc. 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 textbook, fill out the designated CCP Textbook Reimbursement Form for the semester of the course.
- CCS does not reimburse Cosmetology students for their kit but does pre-pay for your online ebook.
