The primary benefit of Career and College Promise for students and parents is the tuition-free classes. Students are only responsible for fees, textbooks, and supplies.
The average high school student participating in Career and College Promise enrolls in two Blue Ridge Community College classes each semester. Students enrolling in CCP during their junior year of high school, would have 8 classes or about 24 credits completed by the time they graduate from high school.
For parents this equates to $1,716 in tuition savings from BRCC or any of the other North Carolina community colleges. For transferable classes, it means savings of several thousand dollars. But, it’s more that simple the tuition-waiver. It's about the great education opportunities.
