Overview

  • 32% of high school students obtained dual credit through courses at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and/or Western Piedmont Community College (WPCC)

Western Piedmont Community College - Career College Promise


The CCP program provides a pathway for high school students to begin earning up to 35 hours of college credit while still in high school.  Tuition is waived for all high school students who participate in the CCP program. CCP credits will transfer to most four-year colleges, universities or can be applied to WPCC college programs.

Project Fast Forward

In a partnership with Rochester Institute of Technology and the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (RIT/ NTID), students can earn dual credit for courses taken at NCSD. This opportunity is provided by our participation in Project Fast Forward, which is part of DeafTEC: Technological Education Center for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students. Our teachers have attended extensive training at NTID and are certified to teach these college level courses. Students passing the class, including the summative project, will post college credit in addition to earning the high school credit. The credit can be used towards a degree at RIT/NTID or at any other college across the country.

The following classes are offered as NTID courses: Raster/Vector Graphics, Engineering Graphics, Adobe InDesign, and Forensics.
