Career and College Promise is a program that allows high school students to attend classes at RCC and earn college credit transferable to all UNC System Institutions and many NC Independent Colleges and Universities, or earn college credit toward a credential, certificate or diploma in a technical career from RCC. 

By earning these credits while still in high school, students can get a head start on the next phase of their education and save thousands of dollars in tuition.
