Meeting set to discuss Career and College Promise with parents
Source Date: July 22, 2012
The Bladen Community College Counseling Division has scheduled a meeting on Monday, July 23, at 6 p.m. in Building 17, Room 102 (Teaching Auditorium) to discuss participation of high school students in Career and College Promise. The primary purpose of the meeting is to ensure that parents of students eligible to participate in the program are aware of its availability and to get details about how the program is structured.
Career and College Promise was authorized by the North Carolina General Assembly to replace the dual enrollment programs previously available under the Huskins Bill. Though structured differently, it offers high school students an opportunity to get up to a year of college credits while still in high school and is tuition free to participants.
Courses in the vocational pathways such as welding, cosmetology and industrial maintenance offer students an avenue to get a head start on a career by completing certificates and/or getting the first year of an associate degree that can be completed at BCC. Courses in the college transfer pathways are fully transferable to the universities in the University of North Carolina System.
Participation in Career and College Promise can substantially reduce the cost of earning a college degree or vocational program certification. This meeting will give parents and prospective students an opportunity to ask questions and get the details about this excellent opportunity.
For information, call a BCC Counselor at 910.879.5500.
