Career and Technical Programs of Study for High School Populations

Upon completion of a CTE Pathway, students will have earned substantial credit toward an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree. All courses in a CTE Pathway are college-credit, but not all courses are transferrable. To assist students who plan to go on to a four-year university, the courses that transfer under the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement between the N.C. Community College System and the University of North Carolina system are marked with (T). Students are encouraged to consult with their academic advisor while at South Piedmont Community College.

Many courses listed in these CTE pathways may also count as high school electives. Students should contact their high school counselor for more details.


  • Contact your high school guidance counselor. The counselor can provide information about eligibility and coordinate the high school and college class schedules. Students may enroll concurrently in two CTE pathways.
