the career and college promise college transfer pathways provide students with course options that are universal general education transfer courses. this means each course will transfer directly to all 16 university of north carolina institutions, and many of the state's private colleges. all courses in the transfer pathways carry ap level weight as high school courses.
there are four transfer pathways:
- associate of arts ccp pathway
- associate of engineering ccp pathway
- associate of fine arts ccp pathway
