SANFORD - The Central Carolina Promise/K14 program encourages local students to complete their Associate Degree, or 14th grade, by providing two years of tuition-free classes after their high school graduation. The program encompasses the Chatham County Promise, Harnett County Promise, and Lee County Promise -- and is generously funded by the commissioners in each county.

To qualify, students must:

  • Take a minimum of 4 classes (or 12 credit hours) of college classes during high school, generally through the North Carolina Career & College Promise program.
  • Reside in Chatham, Harnett, or Lee County.
  • Graduate from high school and take classes at Central Carolina Community College within their declared major.
  • Complete the enrollment checklist located at www.cccc.edu/promise.

Chatham, Harnett, and Lee County students who graduated high school in 2020 or 2021 and meet the criteria above are currently eligible to join the program -- it is not too late!

Please visit our website at www.cccc.edu/promise for more information. Students can also contact CCCC College Access Coordinator Mary Schmid Carter at promisek14@cccc.edu or by calling 919-718-7542.
