What?

North Carolina's Career & College Promise provides a pathway for high school students to begin their college work during high school. The pathway makes two-year community college or four-year college/university degrees more affordable for students and their families. Beginning college-level work during high school also offers students support for success and eases the transition between high school and college admission. Career & College Promise will prepare eligible high school students for pursuing their goals after high school – that means transferable college credit for some and career training for others. To be eligible to participate in Career & College Promise students must be high school juniors or seniors.

Where?

College Courses offered at the WCC Campus  

Participating high school students attend classes at their high school for part of the school day and college courses at Wilkes Community College (WCC) for part of the day. These concurrent enrollment students earn both high school and college credit for the college courses they successfully complete. WCC offers a variety of courses at times that correspond to the high school afternoon class periods. High school students may also take courses in the evening or at other times that fit their schedules.

Online Courses  

Many of the courses in the pathways are available for students to take online. These courses are best suited for students who have good study habits and are self-starters. Coursework for online classes may usually be completed at any time and location with computer and available Internet service.

* To find out if online courses at WCC may be right for you, go to the Distance Learning page or the FAQ Section.

College Courses Offered on the High School Campus

Some college courses may be offered on the high school campus either during the normal school day or immediately afterward. Check with your high school counselor for a list of courses to be offered on your campus.

College Credit for High School Technical Education Courses  

High school students can also earn college credit for certain high school courses they complete. Please talk to your high school guidance counselor or WCC high school representative for further details.
