High School Students Prepare for Dual Enrollment

Nash Community College held orientation on Thursday, May 30 for high school students entering the Career and College Promise (CCP) program, and their parents and guardians. President Dr. Bill Carver welcomed the group to NCC’s campus, and Dr. Deana Guido, associate vice president of transfer initiatives, provided an overview of the program. Approximately 325 new Career and College Promise students will begin at NCC in the fall.

CCP allows qualified high-school-age students to pursue a two-year degree, tuition free, while they are dually enrolled at their high school and at Nash Community College. Credits earned through the program transfer into Nash Community College’s degree programs and to participating four-year colleges and universities. Students may choose from Career and Technical Education and College Transfer pathways.

Career and College Promise is a rigorous program requiring a high level of student commitment and determination. To be considered for admission, applicants must be a high school junior or senior, have an official high school transcript and meet the specific requirements of their chosen pathway.

On average, in-state tuition and fees per semester for one full-time Nash Community College student are less than $1,300 compared to approximately $6,500 per semester, on average, at in-state public four-year colleges and universities.

Career and College Promise students and all prospective Nash Community College students and parents are invited to campus-wide Orientation Open House on Thursday, August 15 from 3:00 PM – 7:00 PM (floating).
