Eligibility Requirements for the College Transfer Pathway:

The College Transfer Pathway is designed for high school juniors and seniors who wish to begin earning college credits towards a baccalaureate degree. This pathway is a structured set of general education courses leading to the completion of an Associate in Science (AS)/ Arts (AA) or Engineering (AE) degree. The pathway allows for the completion of approximately 30 semester hours of college transfer courses including English and mathematics. CCP pointing student

To be eligible for enrollment, a high school student must:

  1. Be a junior or senior;
  2. Be enrolled in at least one high school course;
  3. Have a weighted GPA of 3.0, or higher;
  4. Demonstrate college readiness in English, reading, and mathematics on an assessment test(s) (PLAN, Pre-ACT, PSAT, SAT, ACT, Accuplacer, or NCDAP); and
  5. Meet all college course pre-requisites.

College Readiness

To enroll in a College Transfer Pathway, students must demonstrate college readiness in English, reading, and mathematics on approved assessment tests. College readiness may be demonstrated by scores on one or more assessment tests; for example, a student may combine a math score from the PLAN test with writing and reading scores from the PSAT test.

Maintaining College Transfer Eligibility for continued enrollment - a student must:

  1. Continue to make progress towards high school graduation and
  2. Maintain a 2.0 GPA in college coursework after completing two courses.

Other CCP Information

A student who completes a CCP pathway, while still enrolled in high school, may continue to earn college credits leading to the completion of an associate’s degree with the approval of the high school principal and the college administrator.

A student may enroll in both a College Transfer Pathway and a Career and Technical Education Pathway.  Courses in one program of study may not be substituted for courses in another program.

College Transfer Provisional Status:

Students who do not qualify for the College Transfer Pathway but meet the following requirements can enroll as a College Transfer Provisional Student. 

To be eligible, a high school student must:

  1. Be a junior or senior;
  2. Be enrolled in at least one high school course;
  3. Have a weighted high school GPA of 3.5;
  4. Have completed 2 years of high school English with a grade of “C” or higher;
  5. Have completed high school Math III (Algebra II) or higher with a grade of “C” or higher;
  6. Obtain written approval from the high school principal and JCC President / Vice President.

Provisional students can enroll in English or mathematics courses in a College Transfer Pathway without placement or other testing.  These students cannot enroll in any additional courses in the pathway until they are no longer considered provisional.  Students are no longer provisional when they successfully complete the first English and math course in the pathway with a grade of “C” or higher. Students who elect to participate as a college transfer provisional student may not enroll in any other pathway until they are no longer provisional.
