UNC Greensboro received a $5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences to lead an assessment of dual enrollment pathways in North Carolina.
SERVE, an education research and technical assistance center at UNCG, will partner with the N.C. Department of Public Instruction, the N.C. Community College System, and the RAND Corporation to evaluate the implementation, impact, and cost of North Carolina’s Career and College Promise (CCP) program.
Established by the N.C. General Assembly in 2011, CCP offers qualified high school students the opportunity to earn credits that can be transferred to colleges or career and technical education programs. Students may also enroll in early colleges, or similar innovative schools set on college campuses, that allow them to pursue high school and postsecondary degrees simultaneously.
