The College Transfer Pathways are designed for qualified high school students who wish to gain college credit while in high school.  Qualified high school students are given an opportunity to earn valuable credits toward a college degree and take advantage of tremendous savings; tuition is waived.  Each student will be responsible for the purchase of textbooks.

Career and College Promise participants will earn both high school and college credit. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction will determine the number of high school units to be awarded to students for successful completion of college courses.  Awarded high school credits will be counted as elective credits and cannot be used to fulfill a required high school course requirement.

All courses listed in the various College Transfer Pathways are listed in the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement; therefore, such courses will transfer to any of the 16 colleges in the University of North Carolina College System and many private colleges.  Transferability of courses is contingent upon the student earning a grade of “C” or better in each course.

Career and College Promise Program participants are not required to pay tuition or fees for courses identified in their approved College Transfer Pathway.  Students in the Associate in Arts  must complete the entire pathway before taking additional courses in the Associate in Arts   degree. Career and College Promise participants are required to maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average on college course work after the completion of two college level courses.
