CCP Policies and Procedures

Tuition is waived for college courses taken as dual-enrolled students. Students are responsible for all fees including, technology, activity, and parking/security/insurance fees. Fees are due to the CFCC Business Office at the time of registration. (Failure to pay fees may result in automatic removal from your courses.) Students are also responsible for purchasing required textbooks, e-text, and supplies for each course. Textbooks or e-text listings and prices may be found in the CFCC Bookstore and online at Cape Fear Bookstore.

Course Selections

Once accepted to the Career and College Promise Program, you will be allowed to register for the college classes listed in your program; you may not enroll in classes outside of your pathway. You may change pathways with permission from your high school principal by submitting a Career and College Promise Program Change Form to CFCC. You are eligible for dual enrollment as long as you are in high school when the semester term begins.

*All courses listed in the College Transfer Pathways will transfer to UNC system schools under the Statewide Comprehensive Articulation Agreement, providing students earns a grade of C or better. All courses in the Career and Technical Education Certificate Programs count toward the college certificate, diploma, or degree programs.

College Readiness Assessment Tests

To qualify for acceptance to a College Transfer Pathway in the NC Career and College Promise Program, you must meet required cutoff scores for all subjects on an approved diagnostic assessment test as outlined on page two of this application. (Combining scores from multiple tests or subjects is permitted.)

Course Prerequisites

Students must meet prerequisites for each pathway prior to enrollment. Students who need to take the College Placement Test may do so at CFCC campuses. The College Placement Test is offered routinely on both the CFCC Wilmington and North Campuses. There is no charge for the College Placement Test. To learn more and view the placement testing schedule, please see our Testing Services website:

Course Withdrawal

To withdraw from a class, CCP students must follow the procedures listed at Once the student has completed the online form, a Cape Fear Counselor will send them an email informing the student to get permission from their high school for the withdrawal.

Next, the student will have the high school designee (usually their high school guidance counselor) send an email directly to the Cape Fear Community College Counselor, informing the Cape Fear Counselor that the student has permission from the high school to withdraw from the class.

The high school designee will need to include the following information in their email:

  • Student’s Name
  • Student’s CFCC number
  • Course to withdraw from
  • A statement indicating they have the school’s approval to withdraw.

Next, the CFCC Counselor will send another email to the student to confirm they want to withdraw from the class. Please have the student follow up with Cape Fear Community College Counselor if they have questions about the withdrawal process. Students who wish to withdraw after 60 percent of class hours must obtain permission in writing from their instructor and Department Chair. Permission will be granted for extenuating circumstances only. Documentation is required. No withdrawals can be requested during the last week of the semester.

Future Financial Aid Eligibility

All classes are taken in this program become a part of a student’s permanent college record. Any unsuccessfully completed class negatively impacts a student’s future eligibility for financial aid.

Class Attendance

CFCC instructors have attendance policies that are clearly presented on the first-day handouts. There are no excused absences. Students who do not meet the minimum attendance requirements will be given an “F.” Students should be familiar with the withdrawal policies of the College in order to prevent failing a class due to a lack of attendance.
