- A student does not have to be headed for a four-year college degree to participate. Some programs can be completed in less time and offer a certificate, diploma, or two-year degree.
- Students may be eligible to have tuition (cost of a class) paid and books purchased for them when they take college-level classes while in high school.
- No minimum GPA is required for Sophomores to take the recommended first class, ICC's Success and Study Skills. Minimum GPA requirements may apply to other courses.
- ACA115 - Success and Study Skills is an ICC class but is offered to Sophomores at R-S Central and is taught by the high school's teachers.
- Career & College Promise (ICC) offers both online courses and instructor-led classes.
- Career & College Promise courses can be taken by eligible high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors (varies by pathway).
- Time for these courses can be included in a student's high school schedule when they plan their schedule with a school counselor each year.
- These courses go on the student's official college transcript (the record of college courses and grades), so the student must be committed to the time and effort. The college transcript follows a student throughout life and can affect future college and financial aid applications.
- North Carolina state policy regarding the impact of high school students' grades on their eligibility for a driver's license applies to ALL course grades, including college course grades.
- Early college course grades ARE INCLUDED in determination of students' eligibility for high school athletics.
- In addition to college and university academic policies, students must follow all high school rules and policies at all times. Failure to follow high school attendance and other policies, including during online class periods and in classes taught by ICC faculty on the R-S Central campus, can result in disciplinary action and can affect the student's high school grade for the class period (regardless of their college grade).
- Since these are college classes, the student is responsible for keeping track of progress and grades and for notifying their college instructor and online facilitator of any problems they are having. Grades in these classes will not always be on the high school report card or in Canvas.
- Due to privacy laws, instructors for college courses cannot talk with a student's parents/guardians about the student's course work. The student is responsible for communicating their progress with instructors and parents/guardians.
