Posted by Debra Worley - email

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - In August Cape Fear Community College will start a new "Fast Track" program designed for people who work during the day.

With this program students can earn a two-year degree in general studies, business administration, or criminal justice.

The classes will be held at night and online with a price that is lower than tuition of private colleges.

According to CFCC, based on current tuition and fee rates, NC residents can enroll full-time at CFCC for approximately $664 per semester and earn a complete associate's degree for a total of $3,579, or less, if the student qualifies for financial assistance or if the student's employer provides tuition assistance.

Requirements for enrolling in the Fast Track programs:

  1. CFCC application must be completed and submitted to the CFCC Admissions Office
  2. Official transcripts from high school and other colleges attended must be submitted to the CFCC Admission Office
  3. Placement testing and all required remedial courses (or the equivalent thereof) must be completed
  4. Off-campus high-speed Internet access is required of the Fast-Track students

CFCC will hold a Fast Track open house Tuesday, Aug. 4 at 6:00 PM at the BB&T auditorium at the CFCC North Campus in Castle Hayne.
