There are good reasons to enroll in CCP at WPCC:

  • Value
    Tuition and fees are waived for students (Students are responsible for textbook purchases).
  • Support
    Each Burke County high school student is served by a WPCC Career Coach who provides individualized support and guidance. WPCC also offers academic planning, support, and tutoring to help students reach their goals.
  • Success
    CCP class credits help satisfy high school course requirements and can transfer to 4-year colleges and universities or to WPCC academic programs.

The CCP Pathways at WPCC

High school students can choose from multiple transfer and technical pathways in Career & College Promise:

College Transfer Pathways

College Transfer Pathways prepare students for a 4-year college or university through the WPCC Associate in Arts, Associate in Fine Arts, Associate in Science, and Associate Degree Nursing programs. Courses taken in these pathways will transfer to all public North Carolina universities and many private and out-of-state institutions.

 

Career Technical Education Pathways

Career Technical Education Pathways are designed for high school students to be able to complete a certificate at WPCC as well as accumulate credits toward an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree. All CTE pathway courses are college courses, but most courses are not transferable.

See Class Schedules 
 
WPCC courses are offered in seated, online, and web-assisted formats. In the class schedules, the course section numbers (2-4 digit number to the right of the course number) indicate the format of the class.

WPCC Class Section Numbers

  • 01, 02, 03, etc. – Seated Class only
  • 21, 22, 23, etc.  – Blended Class (some online coursework but more than 1/2 of the class is seated)
  • 31, 32, 33, etc. – Hybrid Class (some seated work but more than 1/2 of the class is online)
  • 41, 42, 43, etc. – Online Class (all work will be submitted through Moodle)
  • A01, B01, etc. – A Term/B Term Class (A Term ends mid-semester; B Term begins mid-semester)
  • L01, L41, etc. – Late Start Class (class start time is delayed to align with the high school schedule)
  • 01H, L01H, etc. – Class Open to High School Students ONLY (an example would be a class with a L02H designation would be a late-start class, meet at a high school location, and only be open to CCP students)

Per the WPCC academic calendar, most college courses begin earlier than high school courses. For spring semester, there are approximately two weeks in which the college spring semester and the high school fall semester overlap. To help with this, students can plan to take college courses during the same high school period(s) both fall and spring semester whenever possible.

Select college classes are offered on high school campuses, primarily during the 1st and 4th periods. These classes usually meet on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays or Tuesdays and Thursdays. Some classes (i.e. math and foreign language) meet 4-5 days per week. Below is the proposed CCP course schedule for 2019.
