The Career & College Promise Program is a state-sponsored collaboration between North Carolina public 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 AP -level high school credit (weighted) and will transfer to many four-year colleges and universities. Courses taken in the Career & Technical Education Pathway receive standard high school credit (non-weighted) and can help students complete diploma, certificate or degree programs at community colleges.
