Additional Information:

Once students have selected a pathway, they will only take courses within that pathway as required by program legislation.  Depending on their eligibility, a student may enroll in both a College Transfer Pathway and a Career and Technical Education Pathway.  Courses in one program of study may not be substituted for courses in another program. A student who completes a CCP pathway, while still enrolled in high school, may continue to earn college credits leading to the completion of an associate’s degree with the approval of the high school principal and the college administrator.

Maintaining eligibility for continued enrollment in the CCP program - a student must:

  • Continue to make progress towards high school graduation
  • Maintain a 2.0 GPA in college coursework after completing two courses
    A student who falls below a 2.0 GPA after completing two college courses will be subject to the college’s policy for satisfactory academic progress (Academic Warning, Academic Probation).
