Wake Tech's Career and College Promise
This is a program that allows eligible high school juniors and seniors (2.8 unweighted GPA or higher) to take tuition-free college courses at wake tech and Central Carolina Community College. It’s sometimes referred to as dual enrollment, and the program has had other names in the past (Huskins, Learn and Earn). There are face-to-face and online courses available. If the student makes a c or higher in a “UGETC” (University General Education Transfer Credit) course, the credit is guaranteed to count at any 4-year public college in the state of NC (many private colleges as well)! We have heard from the admissions department at UNC Chapel Hill and NC State, that they view these courses exactly the same as ap level high school courses in terms of rigor (same GPA - 5 points for an a in college transfer pathways)! This is a great way to save money for college and improve your college application resume while getting electives (AP rigor-level) towards high school graduation!

CCP at Wake Tech
In order to participate in CCP at Wake Tech, the first step is for the student and a parent/guardian to attend a mandatory information session at Wake Tech the semester before they plan on taking courses. Without attending this information session, the student will not be able to participate in the program. The student and parent will receive important information and required documents/forms at this session. Click here for information on the next available sessions:
CCP at CCCC
Cary High School is located in Wake County, but Central Carolina Community College is another option for tuition-free dual enrollment courses as well. Their campus location is a better option for some of our students, so they do accept Cary High School students for CCP courses when there are available seats left in courses. In order to apply, simply have a 2.8 unweighted GPA or higher and complete the application below and bring it to Mr. Evans in room 2332.
