FAQs For Career and College Promise

 

Career & College Promise General Questions

Q: How do I apply to participate in the Career & College Promise program?

A: For now, students should see their high school guidance counselor to apply for CCP. In the very near future, all applications for CCP will be submitted online at CFNC.org.

Q: Can students under 18 years old who are not high school graduates enroll in a community college outside of Career & College Promise?

A: No, except for some non-credit courses taken on a self-supporting basis, including safe driving courses.

Q: Are students who attend a high school outside of North Carolina—but are NC residents—allowed to participate in the CCP program?

A: High school juniors and seniors who reside in North Carolina are eligible to participate in Career & College Promise.

Q: What is the maximum number of college credits that a CCP student can take?

A: There is no maximum number of college credits that a CCP student can take. All students must maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher on college courses within a program of study and must continue to make progress towards high school graduation.

Q: Are CCP courses that are part of a specific “program of study” allowed to be offered on high school campuses?

A: Yes.

Q: If college courses are offered on high school campus, will regular college students be allowed to take those course sections also?

A: Probably not, but ultimately the school district must decide this in light of their security policies.

Q: Will the high school students enrolled in CCP be allowed to take a Credit by Exam for classes that normally allow college students to receive Credit by Exam?

A: CCP participants may receive college credit by exam at the community college.

Q: Can high school students take community college courses on a self-supporting basis? (The student/students parents pay tuition.)

A: Generally, no. However, high school students under the age of 18 are permitted to take non-credit safe driving courses on a self-supporting basis at any time. Additionally, colleges may choose to permit persons under sixteen years old to take non-credit courses on a self-supporting basis during the summer quarter only.

Q: Are high school students still eligible to dual enroll in continuing education courses such as fire classes, defensive driving, etc.?

A: The effect of the Career & College Promise legislation on high school students taking continuing education courses has potentially created unintended consequences and created some ambiguity. As such, the System Office is actively pursuing legislative clarification to address high school students' ability to take continuing education courses. While the System Office pursues this legislative clarification, community colleges should continue to offer continuing education courses to high school students.

Q: Are there any other pathways for students besides the CT and CTE pathways?

A: No, not at this time. Colleges are permitted to submit new programs of study for review and approval by the State Board of Community Colleges, so it is possible that other pathways/programs of study will be available in the future.

Q: Will the CCP students receive weighted high school credit for completing college courses?

A: All college transfer courses receive weighted (honors) credit, CTE courses, in general, are not eligible since they are not transferable.

Q: Other than some selected math courses, are there any other community college courses that DPI will allow to count towards high school core course graduation requirements?

A: Yes. Some CTE college courses may count towards high school CTE core requirements. There also will be allowances for dual credit for College Transfer pathway courses as well. NC DPI has a team working to define dual credit opportunities to ensure minimum State Board of Education requirements are met. Specific dual credit information will be communicated as soon as it is finalized.

Q: Who is responsible for advising the CC high school students?

A: Advising is primarily the responsibility of the high school. However, the students may also seek advising from the college staff.

Q: Can current high school students’ past college course credits be applied towards their CCP pathway completion credit requirements?

A: Yes.

Q: Are there any minimum class attendance requirements for CCP students?

A: With respect to community college courses being taken by CCP participants, high school students enrolled in community college courses will be held to the same rigorous attendance and academic requirements as adult students.

Q: What is the minimum number of high school credits that a CCP student must take?

A: There is no minimum number of high school credits that a CCP student must take. It is contingent on local school board policies. Please consult with the LEA. Please keep in mind, however, that students who complete the CT pathway have NOT met all of their general education requirements. Students must complete the "Core 44" (44 hours of core requirements as described in the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement) in order to complete the general education requirements. Students who complete the Core 44 can transfer all their credit to a UNC system school as a block, thereby meeting the general education requirements for a bachelor's degree. Students who complete LESS THAN the Core 44 may find that UNC system schools transfer their credit, but that some transfers as elective credit rather than general education credit.

Q: Does the requirement that CCP students maintain at least a 2.0 on college coursework (after two classes) apply to all three pathways, including the Cooperative Innovative High School?

A: High school students enrolled in the CT or the CTE pathway must maintain a 2.0 or higher GPA on all college coursework to continue their enrollment at the college. High school students must also be progressing toward high school graduation. Colleges should use their current student progression rules for CIHSs.

Q: Are CCP participants under 15 years old required to have a parent/legal guardian present?

A: No. Students who are eligible to participate in CCP are not required to have a parent on campus, regardless of the student’s age.

Q: Since students will receive both high school and college credit, how will grades be reported to the high schools?

A: Colleges should transcript high school student grades using their regular grade reporting procedures.

Q: Does the PSAT qualify as a diagnostic test for college readiness?

A: Yes, please review the College Readiness Benchmarks in the section on Program Admission and Enrollment to see the minimum core requirements.

Q: What constitutes a “junior" or “senior” standing for CCP?

A: The local school administrative unit has a clear definition of how many earned credit hours constitutes ‘junior’ and ‘senior’ standing.

Q: If a student can take all of their courses in their senior year on the community college campus, does that impact their eligibility for high school athletics?

A: It does not. These students remain enrolled high school students and retain eligibility to play, assuming they meet all other requirements (attendance, academic performance, etc.)

Q: Do community college courses that count for high school credit count as a full credit or a partial credit?

A: College courses count as one (1) full high school credit. However, when a course sequence is required to meet content standards for a graduation requirement, the full course sequence must be completed to ensure students are eligible to graduate.

Q: Do courses in the college transfer or CTE pathway count as advanced placement (AP) courses for credit purposes?

A: No, pathway courses count as honors courses for credit purposes.

Q: After looking on the NCWISE Course website there is not an end date to the course numbers we are currently using: i.e. ENG 111 is still listed as 1025I without an end date. The new number for ENG 111 1017 I or T is also listed. Can we continue to use the numbers we are currently using or do we have to change to the new CCP numbers? What about all the other college transfer courses that our students take that are not on this new list will there be new numbers coming out for them or do we use the numbers we are currently using?

A: New course codes are being finalized now and detailed information about these new codes is forthcoming. Once new course codes are released, schools will be expected to use the new codes.

Program Admission and Enrollment Questions

Q: Can freshman and sophomores enroll in community college courses?

A: Generally speaking, no. Only freshman and sophomores enrolled in Cooperative Innovative High Schools may participate in community college courses. Otherwise, students must be high school juniors or seniors to enroll.

Q: Can freshmen and sophomores be “grandfathered” into the program?

A: Freshmen and sophomores who were enrolled in eligible community college courses in Fall 2011 and earned a grade of "C" or higher in their college courses may be enrolled in a Career & College Promise pathway without having to provide test scores. However, students must meet course prerequisites for the college courses in which they enroll. These students may continue in a Career & College Promise pathway as long as they maintain a 2.0 in their community college coursework (after completing two college courses) and they continue to make progress towards high school graduation.

Q: HS students enrolled during Fall 2011 who successfully completed a college transfer STEM course with a grade of "C" or better may be "grandfathered" into CCP without meeting entry GPA or testing requirements. Is this true even if they did not test as "college ready" in other subject areas? Example..a HS student could have met the math placement test requirement and took a math course, but tested very poorly in reading or English.

A: Yes. A high school student with a grade of “C” or better in a college transfer course may enroll in CCP. However, grandfathered students must meet all course-specific requirements/prerequisites, just like other CCP participants.

Q: Will high school students be able to enroll in any CCP programs for which they are "college-ready", or will their choices be limited to areas that match their chosen HS career clusters?

A: High school students may enroll in any pathway for which they are college ready and meet all of the program eligibility requirements.

Q: Are high school students allowed to take community college courses (especially online courses) from a community college outside of the geographic area that their local community college serves?

A: Yes, provided that the courses are included as part of the student's chosen program(s) of study.

Q: Are students allowed to apply/register even though they might not yet be in the 11th grade? (i.e., can a 10th grade student who is showing progress towards high school graduation register during the early fall registration period in March/April of their 10th grade year?)

A: Students in the second semester of 10th grade may apply and register to accommodate their high school registration process. However, the high school must certify that students are eligible to participate prior to enrolling, and students must be juniors prior to beginning college classwork.

Q: Do some colleges have stricter or looser CCP participation requirements?

A: No, colleges may not impose stricter participation requirements than the defined minimum high school GPA and other requirements. High school counselors are responsible for certifying student eligibility to participate in the program. Certain courses in the programs of study may have prerequisite requirements and students must meet any such course prerequisite requirements before enrolling in these courses.

Q: Are home school and private school students eligible to participate in Career & College Promise?

A: Yes, students attending a registered home school or a private school may participate in CCP; these students must meet the same participation criteria applied to regular public school students.

Q: Can a college set a minimum and maximum age limit for homeschooled students? How do we know if they are juniors or seniors?

A: No. The home school student’s principal (usually the parent) must certify that the student is a junior or senior and is making progress toward graduation.

Q: Some private and home schools do not use traditional grades. How do these students meet GPA and testing requirements?

A: Like other students, the home school student’s principal must certify that the student meets minimum requirements for participation. These students also must provide official evidence to the community college admissions office that the student achieved “college-ready” scores on an accepted college readiness assessment.

Q: May students within certain college transfer tracks (e.g., humanities and social sciences) participate based on satisfying an individual community college’s “college readiness” math benchmark, rather than placement into MAT 161/171? For example, if a college considers MAT 140 the gateway math course for A.A. transfer students, can a student gain entry by meeting that standard?

A: No. Students must meet the college readiness benchmarks on one of the approved assessments to enroll in CCP.

Q: What assessments are approved for students to demonstrate college-readiness?

A: The approved college-readiness assessments include PLAN, ACT, PSAT, SAT, Asset, Compass, and Accuplacer. Students must be college-ready in ALL THREE assessment areas (English/writing, Reading, and Math). Minimum college readiness scores for each test are specified in the table below.

Q: Are colleges required to use ALL of these as testing options?

A: Colleges are not required to offer all of the placement assessments to high school students. However, high school students may demonstrate college readiness by successfully completing any of the approved assessment tests (PLAN, ACT, PSAT, SAT, Compass, Accuplacer, or Asset), even if that assessment is not offered by the college they plan to attend. Students must meet collegeready thresholds in all three areas – English/writing, Reading, and Math.

Q: If the student meets the benchmark through PLAN or PSAT, will they also have to take the college placement test (or have appropriate SAT or ACT scores) to meet the prerequisites for the course?

A: No. Students demonstrate college readiness by achieving minimum scores on one or more of the approved assessment tests. Students must meet college ready thresholds in all three areas – English/writing, Reading, and Math.

Q: If a student doesn't qualify for CCP using one of the approved assessment tests, may s/he use a combination of tests for qualifying scores? For instance, a student passes English and Reading on PLAN but fails math. Can that student then take Accuplacer to try to pass math and use PLAN for English and Reading and Accuplacer for Math?

A: Yes, high school students may qualify as college-ready using multiple assessments.

Q: What documentation, for auditing purposes, is required for the student's file to show the criteria was met to enter one of the pathways?

A: The student’s high school transcript will include both the GPA and an approved College Readiness score. A student who has not taken PLAN may provide official results using another approved assessment. In addition, the high school principal or his/her designee will verify that the student is eligible to enroll; in subsequent semesters, the high school principal will verify that the student is continuing to make progress towards graduation. DPI is still working on how this verification will be documented.

Q: What constitutes "continue to make progress toward high school graduation"?

A: The LEA, home school administrator, or private high school administrator will monitor student academic progress to ensure that students are progressing towards high school completion.

Q: Can a student be tentatively admitted based upon expected grades at the end of the semester? For instance can a student with a 2.9 GPA be enrolled in CCP for the Spring semester based upon current grades and the expected final grades for the fall since the 1st semester doesn't end until mid-January?

A: No, eligibility is based upon the student's GPA at the time the counselor assesses his/her eligibility.

College Transfer Pathway Questions

Q: Will high school students be able to enroll in any CCP programs for which they are "college-ready", or will their choices be limited to areas that match their chosen HS career clusters?

A: High school students may enroll in any pathway for which they are collegeready and meet all of the program eligibility requirements.

Q: May students within certain college transfer tracks (e.g., humanities and social sciences) participate based on satisfying an individual community college’s “college readiness” math benchmark, rather than placement into MAT 161/171? For example, if a college considers MAT 140 the gateway math course for A.A. transfer students, can a student gain entry by meeting that standard?

A: No. Students must meet the college readiness benchmarks on one of the approved assessments to enroll in CCP.

Q: Why are there specific “program of study” areas (e.g., Business and Economics) for the college transfer pathways and not just a general “program of study” for AA, AS and AFA areas?

A: The designated programs of study were designed to provide structured pathways that consistently lead to transfer student success.

Q: Are there any other pathways for students besides the CT and CTE pathways?

A: Not at this time. Colleges are permitted to submit new programs of study for review and approval by the State Board of Community Colleges, so it is possible that other pathways/programs of study will be available in the future.

Q: Are colleges permitted to make course substitutions within the college transfer programs of study?

A: The Chief Academic Officer at each community college campus has the authority to substitute courses in the CCP pathways, within the following guidelines:

1. Academic soundness – the substitution must be academically sound for the individual student requesting the substitution – no "blanket" substitutions are permitted. The substitution may NOT come from a different discipline (for instance, a college may not substitute an HUM course for Art 111) be a lower level course (for example, a 100-level course cannot be substituted for a 200-level course) under any circumstances.

2. The documentation and the justification for it (based on academic soundness) must be documented in writing. The community college system's auditors will ask to see it for each student. Documentation must be completed on a student-by-student basis.

Q: Can a college substitute another course for ACA 122?

A: No. The college must offer an ACA course that is listed in the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) and transferable to 4-year colleges and universities. Currently, ACA 122 is the only course that meets this requirement.

Q: If a student completes the College Transfer pathway, is s/he ready to transfer into a four-year institution with the necessary general education requirements?

A: Students who complete the CT pathway have NOT met all of their general education requirements. Students must complete the "Core 44" (44 hours of coursework as described in the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement) in order to complete the general education requirements. Students who complete the Core 44 can transfer all their credit to a UNC system school as a block, thereby meeting the general education requirements for a bachelor's degree. Students who complete LESS THAN the Core 44 may find that UNC system schools transfer their credit, but that some courses transfer as elective credit rather than general education credit.

Q: Are colleges required to offer all 4 CT programs of study?

A: No. However, colleges are encouraged to as many CT pathways as possible and as locally feasible.

Q: Can a student begin the CT program of study at one community college and transfer to another community college? Is so, what if the original college has utilized a “substitute” course? Is the receiving institution required to accept the substitute course?

A: Yes, provided the student maintains his/her eligibility for continued enrollment. The receiving institution must accept the substitute course as long as the substitute course was on the original college’s approved program of study.

Q: Can colleges allow engineering course substitutions for the Math & Engineering program of study?

A: The four college transfer programs of study are comprised of general education courses that lead to completion of the 44-hour core. Because engineering courses are pre-major courses, the substitution of an engineering course for a general education course is not allowed.

Q: What is the minimum number of hours that high school students need to be at the high school?

A: There is no requirement for students to be at their high school for a minimum number of hours. Student schedules may vary depending upon how many CCP courses a student has, where those course sections are offered (at the high school or at the college, and when those sections are offered.

Q: If a high school student completes all high school requirements in December (eligible to graduate) can he/she continue with the courses, tuition exempt, even if he/she has no high school classes? Or does the student need to “save” one high school course for spring semester?

A: High school juniors and seniors who meet all eligibility requirements can participate in the CCP program. A student that has not graduated from high school and that meets all of the eligibility requirements can enroll in the program.

Q: Does a high school student have to be present a minimum number of hours at the high school to be sports eligible?

A: As long as student-athletes attend their classes and meet academic performance requirements, athletic eligibility will not be affected. This requires schools to plan for how to record attendance for students participating in CCP off-campus.

Q: Are CT pathway completers considered Freshmen or Transfer students when they enter college - and how will that affect scholarships that are only available to Freshman?

A: Classification as freshman or transfer student will be determined by the four-year college or university to which the student is applying. Counselors should ensure that the college or university decision may impact a student’s eligibility for scholarships.

Q: Do we have assurance that MCR will be met by completion of the CT pathway? Current MCR guidelines indicate that completion of diploma, degree, or specific courses will meet. Specifically for MAT, I am concerned that neither MAT 161 nor MAT 171 currently meet MCR--students need to complete both MAT 171 and MAT 172 to meet MCR.

A: The System Office and UNC General Administration are working collaboratively to address the MCR and MAR. Students that complete the Core 44 transfer core are eligible for all transfer guarantees listed in the CAA. High school counselors must advise students carefully based upon each student’s post-high school plans. Students who plan to apply to UNC system schools or other four-year institutions should ensure they take courses that will meet the minimum admission equirements.

Q: Is there a requirement for students to take a least one course on your high school campus in order to be counted present in NC Wise or for ADM purposes?

A: No. State Board policy does not prohibit students from taking all of their credits at the community college, and there is no state-level requirement for students doing so to be on the high school campus during the semester. LEAs may choose to require periodic “check-ins” or attendance at the high school campus for purposes of advising and follow-up with students.

Q: Can CCP participants pursue both the college transfer and CTE pathways at the same time (for instance, a student who wishes to go to college for pre-med and wants to become a licensed EMT?

A: Yes. A student may choose to participate in a CT program of study and a CTE program of study at the same time. Students may also choose to participate in up to two (2) CTE programs of study at the same time.

Q: Can my CCP college courses also be used for high school credit, including credit to meet graduation requirements? In which subjects?

A: There will be allowances for dual credit. NC DPI has a team working to define dual credit opportunities to ensure minimum State Board of Education requirements are met. Specific dual credit information will be communicated as soon as it is finalized.

Q: Do I have to take a math lab along with my college-level math class to get high school graduation credit for math?

A: No, a math lab such as MA 161A is not required to get high school graduation credit for math, however, some community colleges require the math lab in order to receive the college credit for the course. If you attend a community college with that requirement, you will have to take the math lab to receive full math credit in the CCP program. Also, students intent on matriculating to a four-year school should carefully review the minimum admission requirements. UNC System schools may require the lab for students to be eligible for admission.Career and Technical Education Pathway Questions

Q: In the CTE pathways, a student can be recommended the principal when they don't meet the minimum GPA requirement of 3.0. Can a college establish a bottom limit on what GPA they will accept?

A: No.

Q: Are high school students enrolled in the CTE pathway required to earn an industry-recognized certification?

A: No, students are not required to earn an industry-recognized certification, but colleges are encouraged to provide certification information for students wishing to complete/acquire a credential.

Q: Are there any other pathways for students besides the CT and CTE pathways?

A: No, not at this time. Colleges are permitted to submit new programs of study for review and approval by the State Board of Community Colleges, so it is possible that other pathways/programs of study will be available in the future.

Q: Are colleges required to offer all CTE programs of study?

A: No. However, colleges are encouraged to as many CTE programs as possible and as locally feasible.

Q: Can a student begin a CTE program of study at one community college and transfer to another community college? Is so, what if the original college has utilized a “substitute” course? Is the receiving institution required to accept the substitute course?

A: Yes, provided the student maintains his/her eligibility for continued enrollment. The receiving institution must accept the substitute course as long as the substitute course was on the original college’s approved program of study.

Q: Can CCP participants pursue both the college transfer and CTE pathways at the same time (for instance, a student who wishes to go to college for pre-med and wants to become a licensed EMT?

A: Yes. A student may choose to participate in a CT program of study and a CTE program of study at the same time. Students may also choose to participate in up to two (2) CTE programs of study at the same time.Career & College Promise Funding Questions

Q: Is the community college tuition waived for home schooled and private schooled students?

A: Yes, tuition costs are paid for students. Students do not need to take any action.

Q: Who pays the cost of the student’s text books?

 

A: No state funding is available for CCP or any other textbooks at this time. Community colleges and the LEA must work together to determine how to pay for students’ textbooks.

Q: Can high school students take community college courses on a self-supporting basis? (The student/students parents pay tuition.)

 

A: Generally, no. However, high school students under the age of 18 are permitted to take non-credit safe driving courses on a self-supporting basis at any time. Additionally, colleges may choose to permit persons under sixteen years old to take non-credit courses on a self-supporting basis during the summer quarter only.

Q: Are student fees (e.g., technology fees and insurance fees) waived in addition to the waived tuition for CCP students?

A: Generally speaking, fees are not waived unless the community college chooses to do so. Additionally, no state funding is available to cover student fees. The college and the LEA must work together to determine whether and how student fees will be paid for CCP participants.

Q: Are any funds available to assist the high schools with transporting students to the college’s campus?

A: No, funds are not available to provide student transportation. However, colleges and LEAs are permitted to develop an MOU regarding transportation. Additionally, LEAs may help alleviate transportation costs by hosting college-level courses taught by community college faculty on the high school campus.

Q: Will the funding model for early college high schools remain the same? In other words, will all state (or grant) funding continue to go directly to the LEA, including funding for the college liaison position?

A: Funding for existing early and middle college high schools remains the same.

Q: If a student takes all their classes at the college, is s/he still counted as a high school student?

A: All students enrolled in the district and participating in the CCP program are counted as part of the school district’s Average Daily Membership.

Q: Can we use CTE funds to buy textbooks for students?

A: No.Cooperative Innovative High Schools

Q: What is a Cooperative Innovative High School?

A: Cooperative Innovative High Schools are creative programs that expand students’ opportunities for education success through high quality instructional programming. These schools have applied for and been granted CIHS status by the State Board of Education and by the governing board of their partner institution (Community Colleges, UNC-GA, or NC Independent Colleges and Universities.)

Q: Has the implementation of Early College High Schools changed as a result of CCP?

A: No, early college high schools governance was not impacted during the implementation of CCP.

Q: May colleges continue to provide programming to CIHSs that do not meet the definition for CIHS?

A: The legislation states that CIHSs approved by the State Board of Education prior to July 1, 2011 shall meet the definitions specified in the legislation by no later than July 1, 2014. Therefore, colleges may continue to fulfill the partnership agreements that have been approved by the State Board of Education and the State Board of Community Colleges until further review in 2014. If colleges continue to offer programming to CIHSs that do not meet the (current) legislation’s definition of CIHS after the cut-off date, it may risk the college’s ability to receive FTE reimbursement.

Q: We are a Cooperative Innovative High School physically located on a college/university campus. How does Career & College Promise affect our school operations and our students?

A: It does not affect your operations or your students. The CIHS program was rolled into the CCP program umbrella, however there is no impact on current CIHS schools co-located with the higher education partner.

Q: We are a Cooperative Innovative High School physically located on a site that is NOT a college/university campus. How does Career & College Promise affect our school operations and our students?

A: In the short-term (between now and June 30, 2014) it does not affect your operations or your students. Effective July 1, 2014, all CIHS schools not physically located on a higher education partner campus will no longer eligible to be part of the CIHS program and will revert back to the status of a "normal" high school. All waivers and other CIHS-related permissions will be revoked at that time. For instance, freshman and sophomore students will no longer be eligible for college coursework. The only remedies available to avoid the revocation of CIHS status for these schools are:1. Work with your higher education partner to move the school so that it is physically co-located with the partner. 2. Receive a waiver from the State Board of Education allowing the school to continue operating at a non-higher education site.

Q: What is the waiver process for schools not located on campuses of their partner community college?

A: The waiver process is being considered by State Board of Education. Once it has been solidified all stakeholders will be informed.

Q: May students in CIHS enroll in developmental classes at the community college?

A: Yes, if the CIHS has received a State Board of Community Colleges approval to offer developmental courses.

Q: Will the funding model for early college high schools remain the same? In other words, will all state (or grant) funding continue to go directly to the LEA, including funding for the college liaison position?

A: The funding model has not been altered since the inception of CCP. If changes were to come about it would be from new legislation.

Q: Who does the early college high school program serve?

A: High school students beginning in grade nine.

Q: How are students admitted in the early college high school program?

A: Each early college high school determines the admission process for students.

Q: How will CIHS students be coded to distinguish them from other high school students participating in CCP?

A: Community colleges have specific identifiers that distinguish CIHS students from CCP students.

Q: Are CCP course codes applicable to early college high schools?

A: Yes, CCP students take the same courses as early college high school students; course codes are the same if the course is available to both CIHS and CCP students.

Q: If an early college high school student transfers to a traditional high school, will their college course follow?

A: If the student completes a college course he/she may request an official transcript that documents course work completion.

Q: Are early college high school students allowed to enroll in summer school?

A: Summer school has always been a local decision based on capacity of the community college. It is an issue typically worked out between the local school administrative unit and the community college. The CCP program does not change that.

Q: Are Cooperative Innovative High School students limited to taking community college courses in the CTE or college transfer pathways?

A: No, these students may take any community college offered just as they always have done.
