Career & College Promise

At Richmond Community College, we believe in starting college early! Through our Career and College Promise program, we offer an option for high school age students to begin earning college credit while still in high school. Plus, students who successfully complete two dual enrollment courses while in high school and graduate with an unweighted GPA of 3.0 or higher position themselves for two years free tuition at RichmondCC through the RichmondCC Guarantee.

Dual Enrollment

Richmond Community College’s dual enrollment program, Career and College Promise (CCP), is open to high school age students upon completion of their 10th grade year.
To enroll in the dual enrollment program, students must complete a Richmond Community College student application, as well as pass portions of a placement test to take certain classes. Some standardized test scores may also be used in place of the placement test.
Students taking dual enrollment courses work with their high school counselor and RichmondCC representative to determine which course(s) they are interested in. They have the option of courses in RichmondCC’s certificate, diploma and degree programs, as well as courses to transfer to a four-year college or university.
