FAQ for Prospective Students

What is CCP?
CCP stands for Career and College Promise which is the name of the statewide program that allows high school students to take community college classes.

See North Carolina Community Colleges Curriculum Procedures Reference Manual

How do I apply for the CCP dual enrollment program?
What are the admissions requirements?
Yes! Homeschool and Private School students are welcome to participate in dual enrollment.
Is there an age requirement for admission in the dual enrollment program?
There is no age requirement for College Transfer Pathways (CTP)and Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways offered through curriculum. However, there are age requirements for some Workforce Continuing Education Pathways offered through Economic and Workforce Development. If you are interested in an EWD pathway, please see the descriptions and contact the Program Director for more information.
How many courses may I take in one semester?
Dual enrollment students, like all other CFCC students, may take up to 18 credits hours in a normal semester (spring or fall semesters) which equals five or six classes. Because our summer session is already an abbreviated session, the course limit is 13 credit hours.
Do college courses count for high school credit?
Yes! You may view the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction website to see how CFCC classes will count for high school credit.

Homeschool students/parents with questions about dual credit guidance should direct those questions to the Department of Non-Public Education. Here is a link to help you connect .

When and where do I take the courses?
Dual enrollment students may take courses in their pathway at any time and location that works with their schedules. Classes are offered morning, afternoon, and at night at the downtown Wilmington Campus, North Campus, Surf City Center and Burgaw Center. Students may also take classes online. CFCC is not responsible for nor provides transportation to and from classes.
I have submitted my application for the dual enrollment program. What is the next step?
Once all applications and supporting documents have been properly submitted, allow 7-10 business days for processing. Students will receive acceptance letters through the mail and email with instructions regarding setting up their MyCFCC accounts.
How do I access the schedule of courses?
Once admitted, students can view their chosen pathway courses and offerings through self-service (located in the Launchpad area of the myCFCC student portal).

To access, students will select the “Self-Service” tab under Launchpad. From there, students will click on “Student Planning,” then “Go to My Progress.” From here, students can view their pathway and the courses they are eligible to select from.

For assistance with navigating self-service and selecting courses, reference this tutorial .

Are there any costs associated with this program?
Tuition is waived for CCP students during the fall, winter, spring, and summer terms. Still, CCP students are responsible for paying student activity fees, parking/security fees, technology fees, textbooks, and any required supplies. Payment of fees is expected at the time of registration.

This can be done in person at our business office or online by accessing the Pay Tuition and Fees link under Launchpad in myCFCC. Students who register early enough may be eligible for a payment plan by accessing the payment plan link through their student portal. The fee total is based on the number of credits taken. Parking/security fees are not charged for online classes.

  • Tuition/Fees (remember that the tuition portion will be waived)
  • Textbook costs vary; specific textbook information may be found at the CFCC Bookstore .
  • All questions about billing must be directed to the Business Office. The CCP team does not have access to student financial information.
  • Is financial aid available for students who are dually enrolled?
    Financial aid is only available to high school graduates.
