Career & College Promise (CCP)

  • See Durham Tech's page for more information about the opportunities juniors and seniors have to earn free college credits while in high school.  There are three main options available via CCP:

    1. Career and Technical Education
      • Earn credits toward a CTE certification or diploma
      • Students concurrently take high school courses at CHS and college courses at Durham Tech.
    2. College Transfer
      • Earn transferable* college credit toward a 2- or 4-yr degree.
      • Students concurrently take high school courses at CHS and college courses at Durham Tech.
    3. Cooperative Innovative High School
      • Middle College High School at Durham Tech is a chance for students to earn transferable* college credit toward a 2- or 4-yr degree.
      • Students transfer to Middle College High School to finish their high school graduation requirements and earn college credits.
      • Because students are entirely on campus at Durham Tech and part of this official program, rather than going back and forth between CHS and Durham Tech as with the College Transfer dual-enrollment option above, they usually earn many more college credits in comparison.

    *UNC-System 4-yr schools have an articulation agreement for the transfer of credits between NC 2-yr and 4-yr schools.  Non-UNC-System 4-yr colleges may not award all credits from a 2-yr school, although often credits are transfered in as general elective credits, even if the 2-yr course is not fully recognized toward a more-specific major or graduation requirement.
