PCC graduate Kent Cash, Jr. is saving thousands after studying at community college and transferring to NC Promise School

“At PCC, I was able to take classes like history, English, art appreciation, and pre-calculus. All of the credits were accepted at Elizabeth City [State University]. It was really helpful to get started at PCC.” Combining a degree from PCC with an NC Promise School, such as ECSU, ensures that a student will not pay more than $10,000 for his or her entire degree. Learn more about transferring to an NC Promise School in this article or contact PCC at (336) 599-1181.
