Career and College Promise Program

The North Carolina Career and College Promise:
College Options for High School Students

Session Law 2011-145, the Appropriations Act of 2011, authorizes the State Board of Education and the State Board of Community Colleges to establish the Career and College Promise program. The North Carolina Career and College Promise replaced Huskins, Concurrent Enrollment, and Learn and Earn Online dual enrollment programs. This program offers three pathways designed to give motivated high school students a head start on college and career training!

 Career and College Promise Pathways

1. Career Technical Education Pathway
If you are a junior or senior in a career cluster program at your high school, this pathway will give you the opportunity to enroll in a Nash Community College Certificate Program that aligns with your high school program. You do not have to be part of the Early College to participate in his program.

2. College Transfer Pathway
If you are a junior or senior planning to attend a four-year college after high school, this pathway will allow you to complete some of the core general education classes required during the first two years of a four-year degree. You do not have to be part of the Early College to participate in his program.

  • Associate In Arts
  • Associate in Science

3. Cooperative Innovative High School (Early College) Pathway
If you are a motivated rising ninth grader seeking a non-traditional high school experience, this pathway will give you the opportunity to earn your high school diploma and up to two years of college credit within five years. You will have to be enrolled in the Nash-Rocky Mount Early College to participate in this program. For more details about the Early College, click here.

 

College Transfer Pathways

6. Pathway Changes - A student may change his or her program of study major with:

  • Approval of the high school principal or his/her designee and
  • the college’s Vice President of Student and Enrollment Services.

 

7. Completed All Pathway Courses -  With approval of the high school principal or his/her designee and the Vice President of Student and Enrollment Services, a student who completes a College Transfer Pathway while still enrolled in high school may continue to earn college transfer credits leading to the completion of the Associate in Arts or the Associate in Science.

8. Dual CTE Pathway Enrollment - With approval of the high school principal or his/her designee and the college’s Vice President of Student and Enrollment Services, a student may enroll in both a College Transfer Pathway program of study and a Career Technical Education program of study.

9. Students Enrolled Since Fall 2011 Only  - Currently enrolled high school students (Fall Semester 2011) who have successfully completed a college transfer STEM course with a grade of “C” or better may be admitted into a Career and College Promise  College Core 44 Transfer Pathway in Spring Semester 2012 without meeting the entry GPA or testing requirements (i.e. PLAN).

How do I get started?


Step 1: See your Guidance Counselor
The process should begin with your high school guidance counselor. The reason it starts at the high school is to make sure these classes will fit in your high school schedule.

Step 2: See If You Qualify
College Transfer Pathway Eligibility
College Transfer Provisional Waiver Eligibility
Career and Technical Education Eligibility

Step 3: Obtain qualify test scores (College Transfer Only)

  • See if your school has your qualifying test scores
    OR
  • Take the Accuplacer Test offered at Nash Community College

Be sure to bring a current state or federal issued pictured identification card (i.e. Drivers License)

Step 4: Search for Classes (Classes are called sections)

Step 5:  CCP Application

  • Submit a CCP application filled out completely including class selection and all required signatures. The CCP application is required each semester.
  • Submit a high schools transcript*
  • Submit test score proof of eligibility* (College Transfer Only)

*Students that have qualified in the Fall semester will not have to re-submit test scores or transcripts for the Spring Semester. An updated transcript is required each school calendar year.

Step 6:  Get Registered

Step 7: Attend Class

Step 8: Check NCC WebAdvisor and your NCC Email Often

Homeschool Students

If you are a home schooled student and are interested in taking college classes while still in high school, you must meet the same Career and College Promise requirements as a public or private school student. Please note that to be an official transcript from a home school, the home school must be able to provide its home school certification card from the Department of Non-Public Instruction, provide standardized test scores for each year of high school, show courses with grades, and show semester and cumulative grade point averages verified by the administrator's signature.

Continuing Education

The effect of the Career & College Promise legislation on high school students taking continuing education courses has potentially created unintended consequences and created some ambiguity. As such, the System Office is actively pursuing legislative clarification to address high school students' ability to take continuing education courses. While the System Office pursues this legislative clarification, community colleges should continue to offer continuing education courses to high school students.

What pathway should I choose if I want to major in Nursing or Physical Therapy Assistant?

College Transfer Pathway
Courses recommended for students who want to major in the Associate Degree Nursing or Physical Therapist Assistant programs include BIO 111, MAT 171, CHM 151, CHM 152, and ENG 111.
All students interested in the Associate Degree Nursing or Physical Therapist Assistant programs are ranked and selected for admission based upon the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) percentage score. The components of the TEAS exam are reading, math, science, and English. The TEAS exam is the heaviest weighted component in the ranking process. Therefore, math, English, biology and chemistry courses will benefit high school students interested in health care programs. Ranking is also based on the successful completion of the following courses with a grade of C or better:

  • BIO 168              Anatomy and Physiology I                        2 points
  • BIO 169             Anatomy and Physiology II                        2 points
  • CHM 130/130A    General Organic and Biochemistry/Lab        2 points


An Associate Degree will score 2 points in the ranking. Students currently enrolled at Nash Community College will also score 1 point in the ranking of student.
