Programs for Current High School Students

Career and College Promise (CCP)


At South Piedmont Community College students can take college classes while still in high school. After graduation from high school, students can be well on the way to earning an associate degree at South Piedmont Community College. This approach is affordable and gives students a head start to finishing college.

The N.C. Career and College Promise (CCP) program is a jumpstart for earning a college degree. Tuition is free!

Qualified students can earn college credit while still in high school. Students are dually enrolled in their high school and at South Piedmont Community College allowing them to receive both high school and college credit for courses taken through the program.

College Transfer Pathways: We offer two transfer pathways that provide structured sets of general education courses. Upon completion of the Associate in Arts College Transfer Pathway or the Associate in Science College Transfer Pathway, students will be able to earn an Associate in Arts (AA) degree or an Associate in Science (AS) degree with less than 30 additional hours of study. You must have a weighted 3.0 grade point average and demonstrate college readiness on an approved placement test.

Career and Technical Education Pathways (CTE): We have 36 different pathways in a wide range of subjects that can be applied toward an Associate of Applied Science degree. Many of these classes do not require test scores and if your GPA is not quite at the 3.0 level, you can still participate with permission from your principal.

To get started, contact your child’s guidance counselor. The counselor can provide information about your child’s eligibility and coordinate the high school and college class schedules. If you have additional questions about the Career and College Promise program or attending South Piedmont Community College, please contact one of our Enrollment Recruiters.
