Career and College Promise

What is Career & College Promise?

The Career and College Promise (CCP) program at South Piedmont Community College offers eligible students the opportunity to earn college credit while still enrolled in high school. The best part: tuition is free!

Who Qualifies for Career & College Promise?

North Carolina high school students (from public high schools, private high schools, charter schools, and home schools) who meet GPA and other requirements are eligible to participate in the Career and College Promise program. Students may choose to take classes from the College Transfer Pathways focusing on transferable general education courses or Career and Technical (CTE) pathways focusing on manufacturing, science, technology, engineering, mathematics, agriculture and transportation.

Students may also apply in the eighth grade to enter one of South Piedmont’s Early College programs,  depending on the county of residence. Early College students are enrolled by the county high school system.

Tai Huynh

I wouldn't be where I am today without the faculty and staff at SPCC. They generously gave their time and energy to support me at every step of my journey. I took full advantage by taking on additional leadership roles and getting my real estate license as well as earning my associates.​

Through my dual enrollment, I was one whole year ahead of many of my peers and I didn't have to worry about paying for tuition!
