Central Carolina Technical College is an “open door” institution serving the educational needs of all who can benefit from its courses and programs. Central Carolina makes every effort to minimize geographic, financial, and scholastic barriers to the programs and services offered by the college. A high school diploma (or GED certificate) is not a prerequisite for college admission but is required for selected program admission and all forms of financial aid.
The definition of “open door admission” implies the college’s commitment to assess student potential and to provide appropriate developmental/transitional courses that will prepare students for collegiate level courses and programs. The definition further implies that consistent with accrediting agencies and boards, some associate degree programs may require students to possess a valid high school diploma, GED, certificate, and/or demonstrate their ability to make satisfactory progress in a given course or program admission.
