Career and College Promise General Information and Costs

Career and College Promise (CCP) provides seamless dual enrollment educational opportunities for eligible North Carolina high school students in order to accelerate completion of college certificates, diplomas, and associate degrees that lead to college transfer or provide entry-level job skills.


Each step leading to and each step taken on pathways should prepare high school students for college, both academically and culturally. Therefore, the experience from start to completion will be aligned with a “traditional” college student’s experience. This alignment will ideally ensure students are able to accelerate into careers and college seamlessly after high school graduation.


Qualified public (including undocumented), private, or home-schooled students can earn college credit, which can be applied toward high school credit.


Although Durham Tech may serve students from any North Carolina school through CCP, our primary service area includes Durham and Orange Counties.


Students will be able to enroll in courses taught on the college campus and/or offered online.


There are three specific pathways:

  • Career and Technical Education Pathway (CTE)
  • College Transfer Pathway (CT)
  • Cooperative Innovative High School Pathway (CIHS)

High school students may also register for courses through Durham Tech’s Corporate and Continuing Education Division. Courses taken through this division are non-credit courses. Students are responsible for submitting a CCP Authorization form with their registration form, meeting the eligibility requirements listed on the form, and paying for all registration, supply, and textbook fees associated with noncredit courses. A list of noncredit courses is available in the Continuing Education section.


Tuition, Fees, and Textbooks

Tuition is waived for credit courses during the fall and spring semesters by the state of NC. The college and class fees are waived by Durham Tech. Textbook costs are the responsibility of the student.
