College Career Pathways
The College Career Pathways (CCP) program is a concurrent, or dual, enrollment program for high school students administered by Three Rivers Community College (TRCC). Students gain exposure to the academic challenges of college while in their familiar high school environment, earning college credit and a college transcript when they successfully complete the course. Concurrent enrollment supports the collaboration between high school teachers and college faculty, thus encouraging the alignment of secondary and postsecondary curriculum.
CCP courses are taught during the regular high school day by qualified high school teachers who have been certified as adjunct instructors for TRCC by corresponding academic departments.
CCP courses taught by high school instructors are as rigorous as the TRCC on-campus counterpart. TRCC and each high school collaborate to ensure the content, assignments, and assessments of CCP courses is the same as courses offered on the TRCC campus.
When enrolled in a CCP course, you become a TRCC student and you are responsible for all the policies that effect students enrolled at TRCC. Please review the Student Handbook.
The CCP program allows credits you earn in high school to be applied toward your college education. These college credits can be applied toward a program of study at Three Rivers Community College OR another college or university.
