CCP provides a pathway for eligible juniors and seniors to begin their college work during high school. Students are able to accelerate his/her completion of college certificates, diplomas and associate degrees that lead to college transfer or provide entry-level job skills. What is the Career and College Promise?
WCPSS Policy 5534 “...may participate in dual enrollment to take approved courses at institutions accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools or its regional equivalent including Institutions of Higher Education (IHE) and North Carolina Virtual Public Schools (NCVPS), while completing high school graduation requirements.”
WCPSS Policy 5534 R&P Principals may approve a request for dual enrollment in a CCP Technical Career course even if the course is available at the school. Books, materials, and transportation required of the student are the responsibility of the student and the parent or guardian. Students taking CCP courses are not required to pay tuition....the student will be responsible for providing the school with an official transcript as evidence of course completion. The dual enrollment of students during the summer is permitted with the permission of the parent or guardian and the student's principal. Permission must be obtained prior to enrolling.

Potential Questions Regarding CCP How do students register for CCP? Interested students will learn about the CCP program, eligibility requirements and registering for the program by attending a mandatory information session and pick up enrollment package. If a CCP student is not succeeding in his/her class or not attending class, is there a way that the Dean of that particular school can be notified? Students are protected under FERPA. Wake Tech cannot release certain student information (including attendance) without the student’s consent. Students’ Wake Tech transcripts are sent to the school Principal at the end of each semester. Students also have access to their grades.
Potential Questions Regarding CCP Does the instructors know if they have a CCP student in their class who is a WCPSS student? In other words, do they know if they are non WCPSS students or regular students? – Instructors may not know they have a CCP student in their class; typically they do not know CCP students from “regular” Wake Tech students.
