High School Partnership Program @ NCCC
The High School Partnership Program (HSPP) is a unique program designed to provide eligible high school juniors and seniors from NCCC’s service region the opportunity to register for a maximum of two (2) college level courses each semester, at no charge, while they are still in high school.
Please note: All HSPP students must meet the applicable prerequisites for the course/s they wish to take. HSPP courses are available on a space-available basis. We will confirm both at the time of registration which is shortly before the semester begins.
Tuition and fees for selected HSPP students is waived for fall and spring semesters. (Summer courses are not offered for the HSPP.) All HSPP students must pay for all required course textbooks, supplies, and transportation.
- Students with a minimum of a “B” average are eligible to apply for the HSPP.
- Students interested in participating in the HSPP should discuss their interest with their high school counselor and then complete all of the necessary paperwork, including the minor consent form, before the application deadlines noted below.
- The College reserves the right to render all final decisions on HSPP application submissions. In addition, submitting an HSPP application does not automatically guarantee that a student will be eligible to participate in HSPP.
- Students that wish to participate in the HSPP must successfully complete all NCCC courses and reapply to the HSPP program each semester. Students should consider their appropriateness for the High School Partnership Program and course selection carefully.
All HSPP application and registration materials must be received by:
- November 15th for spring semester courses (for Spring 2021, we will extend this deadline to December 1st)
- June 15th for fall semester courses
(Because of college course capacity and other enrollment limitations that exist, all HSPP application materials that arrive after the noted deadlines may not be considered.)
Procedures & Forms:
To be considered for HSPP, all students must:
- Be a resident of NCCC’s service area towns and cities.
- Demonstrate a “B” grade average in high school courses.
- Complete the HSPP inquiry form (see “Application” section below) and we will send you access to the application. Please complete it before the noted deadline.
- The application for HSPP Spring 2021 is now closed.
- If you would like to be on the list for correspondence about the Fall 2021 HSPP, you may complete the HSPP Application Inquiry Form to let us know you are interested in applying for the HSPP. We will send you the direct application link and a tutorial on how to complete the application in April of 2021 when the application becomes available.
On the HSPP application form, participants may request any courses they wish to. Our full course curriculum can be viewed here. We will work with each applicant at the time of registration (late summer or late winter) to advise whether the classes requested still have space availability and if the student has met the prerequisite.
