•  NC State LPN graduates consistently score above the national average on licensure exams.

College Credit Plus

College Credit Plus is designed to provide opportunities for students to earn college credit while in high school, free of charge, saving them and their families thousands of dollars in future tuition. That’s very similar to the existing early college programs that allowed students to earn college credit, or dual credit which applied to both college and high school.

Who can participate?

College-Readiness is required for admission into the CCP program and is defined by ACT score requirements or ACCUPLACER Next Generation score requirements.

Questions about CCP?

If you have specific questions or want to participate, we encourage you to contact the counselor at your school.
